We need a "horrible box art" thread.

I think you meant to say "Awesome Box Art"

In its own way... totally, haha! It definitely reminds me of the late '90s videos I'd find at Kroger in the big VHS department they fixed up in the center of the store.

Late to the party but I'm watching the half hour "Cursed Films" docs on Shutter and the Twilight Zone: The Movie episode is just horrific.  They show the footage.

On the box art tip, is there a book covering nothing but 80s horror VHS tape art, king of like Paperbacks From Hell?

New trailer dropping in 24 hrs.

I don't want to name them and possibly give them hits, but there's a YouTube channel that tricked me last week with a "new Romulus trailer."  It was the original teaser, maybe intercut with some scenes from the other Alien films or some generic sci fi, with a god-awful unprofessional sounding voiceover that made it really obvious it was fake.  Checking out their channel, they had tons of (now obviously fake) trailers labelled the same way, like "movie name final trailer."  Why is the internet such a carny cesspoool?

THE VOURDALAK

Now THIS looks like fun. Nutty as all get out.

You might remember the same story told in Mario Bava's Black Sabbath AKA The Three Faces of Fear, starring Boris Karloff as the titular Wurdulak (as it is also spelled).

And the fact that it's in French really adds to the surrealness of it all.

I watched this last night.  My wife and I love cheesy shark movies.  It was no Requin, but it had its charms.  I don't think any of the science works like at any point but doesn't matter, people that need to get chomped get chomped, the two big set pieces are glorious mayhem and there's even a shark autopsy at some point.  Ending doesn't make any sense at all but it really doesn't matter because

Robert Pattinson Is Remaking POSSESSION For Some Reason

I'm not normally one to care about remakes because remakes have existed since the single reel silent days, but what are they expecting to do with this? How can anyone look at Adjani's performance and think "yes, I can improve on this?"

Spoiler of the end and trigger warning for self-harm but I will be absolutely shocked if they're prepared to end the film in the same way:

Spoiler

with a small child committing suicide on screen
