I remember the poster - but which movie was it?

Help me settle a long-running debate by identifying which horror movie had the following poster: A night scene, outdoors, I think moonlit. Hand drawn. In the centre of the poster a girl is running away from the viewer, down a path between two stone walls. Emerging from the walls on both sides are hands which are grabbing out at her. I last saw it around 1986. Any ideas?

You might try looking at IMP Awards site. I took a quick look at 1986 and didn't see anything that fit that description.

When I first read the question I would have bet it was Labyrinth. But although the movie has a scene with hand-covered walls, and a poster with a girl running down a path outside in the moonlight, it doesn't seem to be exactly what you're looking for.

Look through the year-by-year archive at the Brimstone Pit to see if anything fits--unfortunately, not every movie has a poster in the entry.

Not a poster, and not an exterior, but Repulsion has a scene like that, where Catherine Deneuve is grabbed by hands coming out of walls as she walks between them.

Sorry this is so late, but is it Die Sister, Die?
