Default The Bad artwork thread

Labels piss you off when it comes to lazy,photoshopped,shitty artwork? Then have your rant here!

Artwork,lurid posters adorning numerous video shop windows,outrageous covers filling many of the shelves of said emporiums......these are the reasons I initially became interested in horror and cult films.
Some of the masterpieces created by artists on original posters are nothing short of works of art.
It seems today,that apart from the 'cult' or 'boutique' labels,very few of the studios,particularly the majors incorporate these prestigious masterpieces when it comes to selling their films on home entertainment formats.....WHY?

Look below-one of the perfect examples,and ask yourself,why would you use that to sell a product over the original art?

So if you've got a rant to rave about,feel free....rant away.....

More 'classics'.
Warner and Universal are particularly guilty......

Big Clint is especially hard done by.....
