Movie Poster Madness: 1977 Edition

Mix a bit of Rosemary's Baby, add a small touch of 2001 a Space Odyssey, and add elements of Kurt Vonnegut's short story, EPICAC and you've got Demon Seed.
Underwater Nazi zombies and Peter Cushing!
 An eerie and heartbreaking horror film - they really don't make movies like this anymore, and that's a real shame.
"Well, I'll be damned!"
"Yes, you probably will."
After Duel, before Christine, there was The Car!
The original Bag Head...and of course, Maryanne from Gilligan's Island was in this one.
David Cronenberg give's Marilyn Chambers her big break in legitimate film.  In spite of it's many flaws, I really like this movie.
And last, but not least here it is: a Star Studded Serving of Seventies Style Satanic Cinema

Loved the Sentinel and Demon Seed. Demon Seed was scripted by Dean Koontz!

Nice choices!
I've always loved that they put "Julie Christie Carries The Demon Seed" on the poster -- very cool. And "The Town That Dreaded Sundown" was always one of my favorite VHS box covers growing up...can you believe I've never seen it??!?

I loved every one of these movies, and have seen them all repeatedly (except "The Town That Dreaded Sundown," which I've only seen once). People forget that Jason Vorhees began his career as a baghead too -- so I guess "Sundown" is a more influential movie than is generally realized.

Favorite = Satan's Cheerleaders! Wish they would have done a little more with The Car
