    I'm surprised there isn't a thread on this Upcoming April 6th release. Apparently they had a contest to pick the cover and the winner will be announced soon out of these three options.

    These are the films included..

    Never Take Candy from a Stranger (1960) (aka Never Take Sweets from a Stranger)
    The Snorkel (1958)
    Maniac (1963)
    Cash on Demand (1961)
    Stop Me Before I Kill! (1960) (aka The Full Treatment)
    These Are The Damned (1963) (aka The Damned).

    I personally have never seen any of these but hey any Hammer is good Hammer in my book. I'm all over this.

    i think this was briefly mentioned in another thread, but the covers weren't posted, so i suppose this is relevant (no reason to call out the duplicate-thread police:D)

    personally i like the noose one the best. it does a great job of looking like a pulp 70's paperback. the knife one is fine, but it seems less natural than the noose one - like its kind of trying too hard. and the other one is just ugly. i hope they go with the noose cover, but im guessing the knife one will win in the end.

    I also prefer the "noose" cover and I agree the knife cover will most likely win. Does anyone know which one was actually chosen? I will be buying this, no matter the cover.

    Yeah I read the DVD Savant review and it looks like a great set, but unfortunately I've sworn off new DVDs for awhile at least. I'll be putting this on top of the wishlist though.
