The Snake Girl was a total Delivenc of Powers ripoff.

Individually, they are funny. Together, each one becomes horrifying.

Except for Black Is Black Mamma Mia 3, that's still funny.

Looks Blizzard finally found a new cover for Diablo 3! That must be the new Deckard Cain in the bottom right corner...

I came in to say that my favorite is Wondeful Dog and then I see that is your post title, slap me five. I love these posters so much, theodolite - hand painted on flour sacks, how fabulous is that.

There are some seriously strange looking breasts in these films, if the posters are any indication.

Wow, those are cool. Just checked eBay -- they're selling similar handpainted posters from Ghana for around $300-400. Someone passing through Ghana could make decent money by snapping a bunch of them up.

There's Hollywood, Bollywood, and in Africa, Nollywood.

Neat! I'll be going to Ghana next February, but I anticipate I'll do the same stupid thing I did in Bulgaria, when I walked away from the open-air market selling piles of awesome Communist memorabilia for mere pocket change.

I didn't get a chance to comment earlier when I browsed through this over breakfast, but this post is really the greatest thing ever today. Astounding, mind blowing thing I never would have heard of without Metafilter. You could probably write a doctoral dissertation on each piece, and right here there are, what, 150, 200 of these. Fascinating, really outstanding find.
