Ads #22: Ads for Serial Killers


Believe it or not, this is an actual  advertisement for film projectors. When I saw this on the last page of a 1978 horror comic magazine I nearly fell out of my chair. Was Bob Crane on their marketing team? Did they conduct their focus group research in back alleys behind strip clubs?  What demographic are they looking for here - carnies and snuff film enthusiasts? Did their movie projectors come with a free pair of rubber gloves and rope?.... Lots of questions, no answers.

  6. I think he looks exactly like a pumped up version of Richard Attenbrough in '10 Rillington Place'. Bit late, i know, but I've just got here.
