The reason it works is largely due to the placement of the shadow and the fact that the white of the 'paper' is not entirely covered and instead utilized, allowing it to create a 'fourth' colour. Without these two aspects, the Arrow cover is lacking dimension and balance IMO. This design looks super cheap and not a stand up representation of the movie at this stage.
Kudos, however, going down this route - it's always challenging to maintain the simplicity and crassness of the 80s video cover designs yet inject them with enough sophistication to satisfy today's media/design savvy audience.

Arrow had nothing to do with this release.

Not thrilled about this artwork. Didn't like it much on the EC dvd either.... but that's what we have a reverse for.

Probably wise to use this for the public eye....don't want the Tories starting up a witchhunt again do we?;)

I was wondering about that earlier too.

With CH being such a controversially well known film, have Shameless purposefully down-played the artwork?

Most likely not, but it did cross my mind!

And as Stephen said....there's always the reverse.

Compared to the uncut Australian version, the cover is replete with information!
