Nellie the Dog Child kind of got to me. Did our ancestors have no decency? Of course not.
The Tattooed Girl looks like a lot of folks I see around here.

Do you want these banners fast, cheap, or good. You can only pick two.

The article refs the production style of Nollywood posters, too, which were featured on SE a long time ago:

African Horror Movie Posters


Most of these horror movie posters were hand-painted on the backs of flour and grain sacks and in my opinion need to be on display in a museum somewhere.
