    I prefer the DVD's coverart. The Blu-ray cover looks like some cheap DTV rental cover.

    Sony... :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I don't mind the DVD cover art, esp. since it makes use of the 1950s portion of the film (my favorite part).

    Prefer the Blu Ray art, good, since that is what I bought.

    Meh, it could be worse. But wow, Sony really fucking sucks when it comes to cover art. Why must they make everything look like a DTV movie? I was SHOCKED that they actually used the original artwork for The Deep on blu-ray.

    But I honestly don't understand the need to change a film's artwork. I mean they wouldn't change the artwork of an album cover, so why do it with films?

    Either way, I'm getting this on blu. Looks pretty sweet.

    I watched Dressed to Kill a couple months ago after not having seen it in some time and yeah....that movie SERIOUSLY needs a remaster. I'd kill for Fright Night and Escape From New York, though. However, we can only hope that Fox follows suit, seeing how Dressed to Kill and Escape From New York are now owned by them.

    yeah, that blu ray cover looks terrible! at least the dvd cover has some atmosphere going for it...nice 50's-style scifi business. but i agree that they should have just kept the original artwork. that tagline doesn't really work anymore, especially on the blu ray cover.

    i was also really disappointed that they switched the artwork for monster squad. poor fred dekkar.

    i think the reason sony didn't use the original artwork cause they never fully owned the film frombeginning like they did with ghostbusters and the deep

    Well...Sony never owned ANYTHING from the beginning, because well...it's Sony. All these films were owned by Columbia. Then Sony bought out Columbia and acquired the rights to all their films. It wasn't a rights issue. That's never the reason, and if it is...it's a fucking poor excuse. They can SO easily acquire the rights to the artwork, they're just fucking lazy. Look at Happy Birthday to Me, they had different artwork and after people complained, they used the original artwork as the insert! And then there was the music issue...how come Anchor Bay is now releasing it with the original score? It was simple to acquire the rights, Sony was just lazy.

    Man, that BD cover sucks and the DVD cover isn't so hot either. Oh well, at least the movie is good...

    I want to buy it but I will just download it now. Screw this release. I guess I will just have to get Night of the Dribbler in it's place.

    Sony's marketing department probably thinks they will sell more copies with "contemporary" art like that. And I'm sure they will. There's a whole new dumb generation to be fooled into believing they rented/bought a new product, and not some old shit ;)

    The cover art sucks but I don't care. I'm just glad to get this puppy on bluray after all.

    Can't believe there are some people that are not going to buy this because of the cover art. I'm personally just thrilled it's coming out at all, I'm not even considering the fact that it's packed with special features and is finally the way the director always intended it to be.

    I could care less what the cover art looks like at this point, I'm buying it no matter what.

    If it's really that unpleasing to the eye, hey that's why people make custom covers. Doesn't bother me in the least bit.

    I'll be buying both the Blu Ray and DVD release for sure.

    ^ Why would you buy both releases? For the different cover art? ;)

    Amen. In ten or fifteen years there probably won't even be box art anymore.

    Actually I'm buying both because I have friends who still don't have Blu Ray players and I'd love to bring this over to their house to give it a spin.

    That and yes, I'm a huge fan. :banana:
