    Ah, excellent. Forgot you'd gotten that. I wish they'd used that poster for the home video releases, but I do love that grim skyline on the DVD.

    It's definitely superior to my DVD copy's cover.

    That's on the cover of mine as well. Again, I love the sky and the creepy old house, just wish there was something else more interesting going on besides just putting the main cast in the corner. Plus the "Evil is patient" tagline on the poster is so perfect.

    Some home video stuff mixed in as I've seen others post DVD covers:

    Yeah that part is great, it's the hammy way they placed pictures of the cast over it that kinda bothers me, albeit to a small degree.

    One of the best films of the 80's. I'd post a trailer but the wastes of sperm over at YouTube seem incapable of actually running a functioning website at the moment.
