Lulu's Horror Film




My little Lulu is taking the coolest class on film making. She learns all aspects of making a horror film and then gets to be in the film! She is playing the part of the student body president and a zombie. Lulu has actually never seen a horror film, so the premier of her film will be her first scary movie.
I started collecting vintage movie posters and lobby cards when I was in college. They were super affordable and made for cute decorations. Back in the 1980's I found the movie poster for How To Marry A Millionaire with Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall for just $35.00. I also picked up Elvis movie posters and anything with cute graphics and colors. I was taking a film class on Ingmar Bergman and Frederico Fellini, so I cornered the market on posters from pretentious European films. I am so glad I saved these because Lulu can have an instant collection if she wants it.

Playing a zombie sounds fun! Are you going to share a clip from the movie?

That's a great idea, I will when it's completed.

What a super cool collection! I just love those posters. I like them tons more than the actual films--I'm a horror weenie.

I bet that class on Bergman & Fellini was great! I'm coveting your movie poster collection along with almost everything else you collect :)
