that's like a VHS cover of a 1995 movie. it's kind of nostalgic, in a way, of an age when people were less demanding about good graphic design and were okay with three human beings posing as robots in their movie posters. i can already see that font jittering with acid colors in the title cards.

haha, my exact thoughts.  :yabbse-thumbup:

it's like one of those vhs you would see at the dollar store while your babysitter is shopping for an ashtray.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

I can only hope whoever made that cover was commissioned on a volunteer basis and wasn't paid for it.

That still doesn't forgive the issue of it being what is actually being used for the cover.
"As a matter of fact I only work with the feeling of something magical, something seemingly significant. And to keep it magical I don't want to know the story involved, I just want the hypnotic effect of it somehow seeming significant without knowing why." - Len Lye

I just never want to see that movie now, and it could be really good!

didn't know exactly where to put this:

"These movie posters were all created by artists in Ghana to promote traveling movie shows and sell tickets to bootleg screenings of various western and local movies. These posters range from quirky recreations of the original movies to WTF inducing paintings with imagery completely unrelated to the original content."

- Like 80 more of them.

I imagine this is what Bruce Lee has been doing with his time since crazy-eyed Elvis. (where have the pictures gone! NO!!)
“The myth by no means finds its adequate objectification in the spoken word. The structure of the scenes and the visible imagery reveal a deeper wisdom than the poet himself is able to put into words and concepts” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Well I'm glad that Sharon Knolle of AOL Moviefone loved it so much. Also, yes, that's ugly as fuck.
