Approximate Vintage: 2012
Print or Image Color: Red

In 2012, Mark of the Devil was re-released on DVD. This is the new version of the Vomit Bag that came with the DVD. It says

This is identical to the other 2012 bag except it's printed on a bag that has copy on the back and the bottom.

Mark of The Devil ABP

Approximate Vintage: 1971
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
This ABP bottomed bag was distributed at a movie by the same name. The bag claims that it is "Positively The Most HORRIFYING Film Ever Made!". The film is also "Rated V for Violence!!!". The bag looks remarkably similar to Cannibal Ferox. It is unknown if the two are related. A quick check of the Internet Movie Database reveals that a film of the same name is dated 1984. This is incorrect. Mark of the Devil is dated 1971. This explanation comes from Joseph Gleason.

a movie named "Mark of the Devil" was released in 1984, BUT THAT WAS NOT THE MOVIE AT WHICH THE BAGS WERE DISTRIBUTED. How do I know? Well, in 1971 when I was small lad of age nine living in Danvers, MA my good friends Ron and Ralph Luscinski of Peabody, MA and I piled into the Luscinski automobile and headed for the West Peabody Cinema to see THE "Mark of the Devil" which was indeed "Rated V for Violence" and where they indeed distributed vomit bags. ALL TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How do I remember all this? Well, the movie was just WAY too violent for that nine year old little boy (in fact I remember going to that movie like it was yesterday) and I headed for the exit before the closing credits (LONG BEFORE THE CLOSING CREDITS). I remember standing by myself in the lobby and the usher asking me if I wanted to go outside for some fresh air. When I got outside I remember looking at the movie poster for the other movie playing at the cinema that weekend and it was none other than the James Bond thriller, "Diamonds are Forever" which was released in 1971!

...and that's the way it was all those years ago! Everything written here one hundred percent absolutely true and if you have any doubts I'll have Ron Luscinski e-mail you to verify same. In addition, Ron can tell you all about the movie 'cause unlike me he didn't woos-out! :o) Trust me on all this!

By the way (and on a very sad note) that West Peabody Cinema is now a SYMS Department Store! :o( )

Now according to anonymous kibbitzer gator722@mail.mem.bellsouth.net, it's a German movie called "Hexen bis aufs Blut gequält"

Mark of The Devil Crest Theatre

Approximate Vintage: 1971

Will the variations of this bag never end? This one was specifically printed up for the Crest Theatre. I have no idea where that is, but the former owner of this bag lives in North Dakota.

Mark of The Devil REAL VERSION

Approximate Vintage: 1971
Received From: Kelly Collins
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
If you were to do a quick search of eBay auctions past and present, you'd find that there are hundreds of "Mark of The Devil" bags floating around out there. The movie simply wasn't that popular. There seems to be some unknown source of these bags. I personally think it's a Columbian Cartel, but I could be wrong.

Now what makes this particular bag authentic is the text that says "See it at the Showcase Cinema". All the fake bags (like the one above) say "See it Soon at a Theatre Near You". FWIW: I found this on eBay

Looks like a half-sergeant chevron.

Looks like the other half-sergeant chevron bag, but for some unknown reason, a square hems in the free form bag.

I am such a conceited American. I chose the English side of this bag as side 1. No wonder everyone in the world hates us.

Alluring in its simplicity.

Now they've done it. Still no instructions, but they identify the bag in four different languages.

Not just a spückbeutel, but a müllbeutel, whatever that is. Very similar to the other Navy and Red bag, but this one has a bottom.

Marty Lamb For Congress

Approximate Vintage: 2010

Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Marty Lamb made a pretty big PR splash by printing up barf bags to rally his constituency. However he lost the election, once again proving that barf bags do not sway elections.

MAT Macedonian Airlines

Nice printing that up close looks etched. "Qese Per Vjellje" would make an excellent Scrabble word.

Not much different than the other MAT bag, except this one is plastic. This bag is notable because it has no closing mechanism -- oops!

McDonald's

It just looks like a barf bag (but it's not).

This is a REAL barf bag! Crossair owns the official McPlane, a McDonnell-Douglas 82/83 model. It is only used for charter flights. It is one of my favorite bags.

Very simplistic with conifer in a circle logo, seemingly indicating environmental sensitivity.

A huge cedar tree graces this old Lebanese bag. Quite pleasing.

Tiny cedar tree plays down the Lebanese origin of this bag.

This is a rare find I purchased on eBay. From the mid-90s, it's Grindcore Music (whatever that is). It has a pornographic picture of Jesus on it. The bag says
