You Say Horror, I Say Harrow

One thing I noticed when researching my regional horror films book was that there wasn't a lot of paper available promoting the works of Texas filmmaker and comic book legend Pat Boyette. Although there are a few copies of the poster for his lost film The Weird Ones floating around, I had never seen any sort of posters or stills for Dungeon of Harrow/Dungeon of Horror, which has become something of a public domain DVD staple the past few years. Thanks to AV Maniacs member D.Wilt of the Mexican Film Bulletin Online (and some other bloggers), we now at least know what the Mexican posters and lobby cards looked like.

First up is this Mexican one-sheet, which was posted over at Rip Jagger's Dojo.

As you can see, the artwork was repurposed for the Alpha Video DVD release a few years back (see the top of this post).

Zombo's Closet, meanwhile, featured this nifty lobby card:

That still begs the question: where's the U.S. artwork? If it played theaters here, there ought to be at least a poster. Anybody ever seen one?

  1. Pat Boyette insisted he lost everything to do with this film and all of his other films in a a house fire. This excuse has been trotted out by many other filmmakers over the years. DUNGEON OF HARROW did play theatrically, and I'll just bet you people walked out dumbstruck.
