Earth vs the flying saucers

Yeah! I’ve found me a second copy of the super 8 version of Earth vs the flying saucers. Call me movie nerd fanboy as much as you like but I love this stuff to death!

OK, let’s share some of my enthousiasm 🙂 . As much as I like the film, with the oh-so-cool Ray Harryhausen effects, I love the 8mm version even more. The box art is my absolute fave piece of artwork in my 8mm collection. In my opinion it’s even better than the original poster art from this movie. Everything in the design works: the minimalistic colors look like a popart silkscreen print and the typography is so much better than the poster. Even the “8mm home movie” serves it’s purpose in the total look of the box.

Here’s the poster to show you what I’m talking about.
