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!

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

Wrong cover, it should be this one:
