Hundreds of original movie posters for cult films from the 1960s through the 1980s will line the walls of the Lethal Amounts gallery May 15 for “The Devil’s Playground: Salacious Macabre Vintage Movie Poster Wall Candy,” presented by Amoeba.
“Devil’s Playground” seeks to celebrate the eye-catching poster work that characterized the golden age of pornography, exploitation, horror, Gialllo and cult classic films. These rare, original posters come from a private collection and will all be for sale at the event. The show will feature posters from such films as Suspiria, Female Trouble, Zombie, Evil Dead and Debbie Does Dallas.
In addition to these killer posters, the opening reception will host special guests Mink Stole (of John Waters movie fame) and adult film cult legends Long Jeanne Silver and Serena.
The show begins at 8 p.m. Lethal Amounts is located at 1226 West 7th Street in Downtown Los Angeles.
