Monstrous Artwork Abounds in Ghana's Cinema Posters

Even if the cartooned image of a man chewing on a leg with other bloody bodies strewn about in a dark overgrowth doesn’t make you want to watch 'Eaten Alive,' it seems to work in Ghana. Instead of the often safe, digitally-enhanced versions we might be accustomed to, Ghana uses unique artwork in the form of gruesome movie posters to promote B-grade horror films. 

From images of blood-gushing dolls ('Demonic Toys') to a half-naked vampiric woman wrestling off cats ('Sleep Walkers'), Ghana’s gruesome movie posters show that sometimes all it takes is a bit of literal interpretation to make a good movie poster—not the recognizable faces of celebs, digital art or photography, or even release dates.
