...with teal chest hair
There was so much orange on the cover they had to get the teal in somewhere.

To be fair, that's my exact reaction when I see the PQ on these bargain-bin sets. Horrifying.

And they misspelled Elisabeth Moss (which is maybe why she's the only cast member not pictured).
People are always doing that with "Elizabeth" Shue. #-o

What...THE hell.

I like that but I wouldn't want to have to explain myself too much as to why, it's just pretty nice looking & eye-catching

The Obsession one is the ugliest cover I've ever seen from a boutique label.

I can't believe I never noticed Genevieve Bujold was a burn victim in that movie

I like it, even if it feels like someone thought they were doing Sisters and caught the mistake halfway.

Or that Cliff Robertson was playing Cyclops.

Seriously, 90% of the time, Scream Factory does a good job with their newly-commissioned covers, but this is RIDICULOUS. And they're offering a FREE POSTER of it if you pre-order, which is hilarious to me.

I actually ADORE this cover, especially considering how awful almost every poster and cover has been for this movie. I’m also a really big fan of the designer and have been following them for some time. I love their work. I’m actually going to double dip on this just for the poster. (Unless someone here hates the cover so much that they want to get rid of the poster...)

Hell, I'll sell it to you to offset some of the cost in (re)buying this movie, and to keep it off my damn wall. :lol:

I actually like that Obsession cover far better than the Arrow one. The smoke coming out of red-headed Cliff Robertson's eyes is puzzling, but overall I think it's an attractive design.

Perhaps it's a reference to

the fact that one of her characters dies in an explosion.

All I can see is siamese twins joined by the neck and a huge afro haircut.

I think Shout Select is trying to get their double dips to sell by giving them demonstrably worse covers in order to attract attention.

...and yet look at their lovely Dirty Rotten Scoundrels cover.

I swear, Shout/Scream cover art is either excellent, or atrocious, nothing in-between.

What the hell? That's above and beyond awful. Someone had to approve this atrocity.
