We've previously expressed our love for the hand-painted mobile cinema posters of Ghana, many of which took extreme creative liberties with films' plots. For example, who knew that Cujo was an evil Cocker Spaniel?

Here's another batch of indescribably bad-ass Ghanaian movie ads. Yes, these posters will actually make you want to watch Ghost Ship again.

Judging from this poster, Kim Cattrall and Kurt Russell have aged rather weirdly since the 1980s.

I don't remember that scene in Deep Rising where the heroes abandoned drowning children to the monster's appetite. Well, at least The People seemed to dig it.

If Godfrey Ho directed Elektra, this would be that poster.

I loved that scene where Timothy Olyphant killed that guy with a giant nail file.

Van Helsing seems to have an acid flashback growing out of his shoulder blade.

In Ghana, Freddy Krueger is an overbearing librarian who teaches the Dewey Decimal system with a pickaxe.

Ah, Anaconda 3. The sequel where the snake learns to vomit apple juice.

As both Ghanaian and Thai movie posters prove, it is nigh impossible to screw up an Evil Dead poster, no matter what continent you're on.

I spoke too soon! The artist clearly thought, "Fuck it, nobody's going to notice the stick figure in the background. They'll be too hypnotized by Bruce Campbell's rectangular forehead."

Just for the record, this is the original Ghost Ship poster. Which do you prefer?

This is one of those rare occasions where a movie poster has piqued my interest so much that I don't even want to see the movie.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm 99% sure a "masacre" is when an untalented chef spoils a good masala.

Is this the Ghanaian sequel to The Butterfly Effect? One can only hope.

More like Vampire Vs. Armless Harold Ramis, no?

Again, I have zero clue what this film is about, but I'm guessing the protagonists are plum awful at suicide.
