Retro Poster: "The Screaming Skull" (1958)

I love the movie poster for "The Screaming Skull," which promises free burial services to anyone who dies of fright from watching the movie. In addition to the free burial gimmick, it also features artwork in the form of a gruesome skull and a scantily clad woman, as well as a warning that: "this ghost will haunt you forever!" The movie focuses on a woman who believes that she is being haunted by the ghost of her husband's dead wife. I'd caution those who are interested in watching this one to stick with the "Mystery Science Theater" version, otherwise you're in for a snoozefest.
