    Hey guys, as some of you may know, I started working on a custom cover for the DVD debut of Fred Dekker's 1986 classic, NIGHT OF THE CREEPS.

    I'm honestly surprised no one else has attempted to put one together, considering all the yelling and screaming about the official artwork, so I figured I might as well give it a shot and started last night.

    Here's what I have done so far;

    Actually, there is a thread on this already, with fan made covers. Nonetheless, excellent job! Yours is a formidable contender. :)

    Still messing with stuff on the original cover, what I'll probably end up doing is finishing both and letting people pick the one they want. Easy no?

    Damn nice work! I really like the second one better, just for the nostalgia. I'm big on nostalgia! :p

    Nice! Both are fantastic, but I probably like the first one you posted a bit better.

    I think I like the first one a blittle better too. Maybe work the front of the second one onto the back of the first instead of the yellow Frankenstein headed dood.

    Well I needed something to put in that space, it's the only thing that really works. I'm still messing around with it right now but as of the moment, that's pretty much what the back for that one will look like. But that may change so we'll see!

    Great work.. I too prefer the second,if only for nostalgia's sake.There is a typo you might wanna fix before printing,(its in the tagline on the front cover).

    Wicked covers dude. I wish they had you designing the cover art for all these re-releases! If you get a chance, think you could whip one up for "The Gate"?

    Do you have a site of all your other cover work? I'd love to check it out.
