Same for me. If I wouldn't know it already, I would skip the disc as the cover spoiled the film anyway so why bother? Seriously new cover are fine and all (even with that fricking annoying floating heads concept) but spoiling important part of a film is incredibly stupid...

A chance they don't do Soylent Green or Citizen Kane...

Yeah, the floating heads thing started with Scream, i think?

For the majority picking up this disc...I doubt the whole mystery of "what's in the fog" would still be relevant.

C'mon ronnie...I thought you were smarter than that. Struzan has been doing the floating head long before Scream. I'm sure there are other instances, but that's the first that comes to mind.

My post wasn't written well. The painting of Ms. Curtis is so disproportionate that I initially didn't even recognize her. Other than that, I think it's pretty well done.

Of course, but not the point I was trying to make. There will be some blind buys, kids of horror freaks like us, whomever in the future that will buy this flick, or pull it off Dad's shelf, and say "oh, it's about zombie pirates." Then you watch the movie and it tries to play this angle for the majority of the film "what's in the fog" and that portion is ruined for first timers because of the cover. Revealing the killer(s) identity on any covers I'm not a fan of in general (unless it's obvious like F13, Halloween, Freddy, etc.). Part of the fun of a lot of these movies is the anticipation build up and having the old "whodunnit?" mindset.

Oh, it won't keep me from purchasing it at all, just sayin'

I don't see how this cover reveals anything more than the DVD cover that's currently available.

Honestly, I doubt Shout! had "little billy" in mind when they decided to get commisioned art for some of their releases. It's obvious this artwork was intended to appease and intice the fans...that's why they've also made collectible posters available.

Whatevs...lucky for you can always flip the cover.

EXACTLY. We're also lucky as hell to even get a quality HD special edition, which I assume will be the case based on Scream's track record. Let's not start raking them over the coals already.

Ther's much more detail on Shout's. The old DVD is just basic silhouettes and if you look real closely you can kinda see a sword coming across one if their backs.

Yeah, that's exactly what I'm doing
Just stating an opinion that should be viewed as constructive criticism at worst. Believe me, I'm happier than anyone with all the great releases.

Turn the case over Jimmy…the whole plot is given away in a mere paragraph! It even states “long-dead mariners have returned from their watery grave to exact a bloody revenge”! Oh dear God no!... think of the children!

Too much detail,… Fold lines...sometimes you guys complain about the dumbest shit.

Here, I made a custom cover for Jimmy, Mutilated, Ronnie, and Nailwraps….free of any floating heads, moons, and/or anything that can be construed as “too much information”.



No fucking wonder why Shout! cut back on posting on social media.

I don't see what is bad in saying that we don't like that their covers spoil the movie... this is not an attack or insulting at all. Anyway this isn't my genre, those who know me well know that I always take the labels side and defend them.

But I like your cover, just lack some color and a synopsis...

The cover was a joke Jimmy.

I’m not saying you HAVE to like anything. Its just your complaints are sooooo damn trivial.

Thanks for new cover Chompy, but once again it's not for me......aw what's the point, skip it

You know it's funny, I never thought about the floating heads until ronnie mentioned it - he's fucking right! They're on at least half of the releases. At the risk of having my head bitten off by Shout!'s apparent biggest fluffer nutter, they should change that shit up.
