Small but mighty has worked well for Brenda Lee and other powerhouse vocalists. It works pretty well for the Horror Movie Poster Exhibit at I AM Logan Square Gallery, 2644 1/2 N. Milwaukee, in Chicago, as well. The posters on display are all original theatrical items, including one sheets and lobby cards, donated by the historic Logan Theatre (based right next store to the gallery).poster 3

While many terror fiends may have more original artwork in their house than is on display here, the exhibit’s purpose cannot be denied. Created to acknowledge the power of the images contained in these advertisements, the organizers’ do, ultimately, elevate these pieces to a place of high art and strike a blow to the perception that these films and their (often potent images) are just pure schlock.

Unfortunately, this particular show is closing on 11/14/2014, but you can keep up with future offerings at

Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
