    The folds bother me more. It's like we're harking back to the early 80s video thing, only they obviously never saw a VHS cover from the 80s! Not a single one in my collection has folds on it. :rolleyes:

    Horrible cover :(

    I am so sick and tired of the fake "Grindhouse/VHS" look!!

    That´s what I love about Arrow Video, etc. They make old-school covers, without fucking tears and fold, and shit!

    Yeah, that artwork sucks. I sure hope there's a reversible cover. I think I almost hate the "white" framing even more than the stickers.

    I don't think I would go that far, I'll still buy it. Won't even see the cover sitting on my shelf anyway:rolleyes:

    Why didn't they just use the previous coverart is what I'm wondering? :

    I certainly like those more than the screwed with "retro" look. I hope reversible cover art for one of those is still a go.

    But.. I don't see why anyone would not buy it simply because of the cover art. That's never stopped me from buying a release.

    Who knows what the eff happened with that crappy cover art, but I'm thinking Olive is gonna cheap out on a reversible cover. I sort of wish Slasher // Video had gotten this one out before signing up with Olive...

    I couldn't imagine not buying a movie because I didn't like the cover art. I store my movies so you can't see the cover anyway which is probably what most people do.

    It would definitely be out if they would have gone with someone besides Olive. Slasher posted themselves that it was delayed until Olive felt like releasing it...or whatever. I'll bet it was Olive who changed the artwork actually. The "Olive" logo addition as a sticker? Uh huh.

    Olive "licenses" and releases some great stuff, don't get me wrong. But that entire Moontrap fiasco pretty much proved that they don't give two shits about their customers or their concerns. They completely lied, and they never said a further word about it.

    I'm not that worried about the cover, I'll be too busy watching the disc.

    However, if that's what they're going with, I think it'd be neat if the stickers were actual stickers stuck on the outside of the blu-ray case. Not just for authenticity, but because it'd drive the people at blu-ray.com F%#&ING NUTS. "OH MY GOD, I NEED 5 BOTTLES OF GOO GONE, STAT!" :lol:

    Actual scratch and sniff stickers on the outside would be cool.

    I think the fact that it's actually the 31st Anniversary of the film (now) will peeve them enough anyway. :D

    No sale because of the artwork? Guy, that's going too far.

    These have already been speculated, but pretty sure Shock 'Em Dead, Killer Workout, and Deadly Prey were just confirmed via Facebook.

    ^^ Yeah, I knew about Shock 'Em Dead already... I thought they announced or mentioned it a couple of years ago.

    Killer Workout and Deadly Prey is great news though.

    Cover looks fine to me really looking forward to this. I can finally retire my old crappy pan and scan video.

    I thought Satan's Blade was shot on shitty-0? It sure felt like it was when I tracked down a copy.

    That's amazing news if Killer Workout is being released. Shock Em Dead looks like it could be fun too.
