I just donīt understand why they would make such a crappy cover to a classic like this.
If I saw that coverart on the shelf, I would just think that itīs a new crap movie with the same title. If they want the fans of the movie to find it, then why not just use the original art? Why hide it on the backside of the cover? The stupid ADD generation wonīt like it anyways, since itīs an "old and boring" movie from the 70:s, so why add new art to trick them into thinking they are buying a brand new and hip movie?

This movie is so eerie in many ways that they could've come up with something more interesting.

As Katatonia mentioned, the UK cover art will be reversible:

On the one hand I agree with you, but on the other hand the way you phrase that question reminds me about how that has ALWAYS been done with B movies. Growing up from the early 70s to the early 90s I couldn't even tell you the number of times that I (and others) have been tricked into seeing the same movie more than once. Putting a new cover on an old movie really isn't all that different than taking an early 70s film like Tower of Evil and re releasing it 10 years later as Beyond the Fog.

Yeah, I grabbed a copy from Full Moon. One of my favorite childhood horror films that still holds up extremely well today. Can't wait to check out the new transfer but I'm not actually expecting too much. They shot this film like 70's Brian DePalma - with vaseline on the lens. At least the nighttime scenes, the bulk of the film, looks close to normal.

Full Moon always pulls this crap. It goes up for pre-order everywhere months in advance, and then suddenly they have it and sell it themselves...but it gets delayed everywhere else. Great free advertising.

I'll wait for the 88 Films release... it'll be superior anyway.

Has anyone bought stuff from Full Moon Direct and can tell me if they send out shipping notifications? I ordered a copy of Tourist Trap as soon as I found out (late last week) and chose expedited shipping but haven't heard a peep yet. They supposedly had copies in stock but, this is Full Moon we're talking about.

They do elDomenechHDG but good luck with that. I placed two orders with them during their Valentines sale and my stuff has been sitting "In Process" now for almost 3 weeks. The last time I ordered through them this happened and I swore I would never order from them again, but I thought maybe this time I might luck out...what a mistake.
