A Closer Look at the Amazingly Weird “Fantasy Coffins” of Ghana

Ghana is my favorite nation. Besides its history of creating bizarre promotional posters for horror movies from the 1980s and 90s, the East African nation also throws the best funerals on earth.

The Incredibly Bizarre World of Ghana’s Horror Movie Posters

Horror movie posters from Ghana are amazing. Painted by local artists to promote roadshow screenings of bootlegged foreign movies, these totally unauthorized images have a rawness and power that the slick Hollywood promotional materials can’t touch.

There is a ton of home-shot footage on the Internet that purports to capture ghosts, monsters, or UFOs, but shaky cellphone footage is easily faked, and hoaxers are plentiful.

When Kenneth McDavid met Helen Golay and Olga Rutterschmidt, they must have seemed like guardian angels.
