So do I. Reminds me of what happened with Viridiana a few years back, but this is not close to as great as the pink version of that was, and that cover was changed wholesale to something more all-around boring.

Was the aqua color referring to the swimming pool? They could have toned it down, I think it was too saturated. But honestly, personally I don’t mind the grey monochromatic look.

I can’t even tell you how cool it is to see an Outfest logo on the back of a Criterion package.

Missed this initially, but they do use a metallic ink that I guess adds a little something to it.

I really like The Hero and An Actor's Revenge, but WTF Tom Jones?

Is there an incomplete painting in Tom Jones because that cover is inexplicable otherwise.

Silence of the Lambs is amazing.

The font of the title for Actor's Revenge kind of works but also kind of interferes with my eye's ability to parse between the title and the art. But a pretty striking idea/design, nonetheless.

It also cleverly evokes the film's spectacular CinemaScope framing.

Silence reminds me of artwork for the current revival of M. Butterfly Image

Tom Jones cover is somewhat boring. Elevator to the Gallows could have used a upgrade. Rest is nice.

Agreed that Elevator could have used an artwork upgrade.

It says The Hero cover is based on a poster designed by Satyajit Ray

I'm assuming this is the poster it was based off:

Am I the only one that hates the new artwork for SOTL? This is one of those films where the only option is the original poster. Much like The Breakfast Club or The Exorcist it's so iconic and perfectly captures the movie.

Silence of the Lambs is an all-time great cover. I know we already saw it, but Night of the Living Dead cover is nice. I think the other covers are pretty decent. No bad covers this month.

Night of the Living Dead is surely a digipak, right?

Both Night of the Living Dead and Silence of the Lambs will be.

Sorry, but I'm not a fan of the new Silence of the Lambs or Night of the Living Dead covers. Dead is mostly ok, but the placement of the title on the left side behind the wacky C is triggering my OCD. Couldn't they have just shifted the zombie hands to the left side and placed the title on the right? And poor Judith O'Dea has been given the same unflattering face treatment that Candace Hilligoss received on the redux Carnival of Souls cover. The font and clean white background with little blood spatters on Silence make it look like a poster for the next season of American Horror Story. Nothing about it evokes the look or feel of the movie for me.

Edit: Although, come to think of it, the Silence cover does look mighty similar to my paperback copy of Red Dragon:

You're too kind. I'd say it's seriously ghastly. Is he chewing his knuckles? Is he looking at the same cover we're looking at? (No wonder his eyes are wide and he looks nonplussed.) Is he having a Voltaire moment, pondering the meaning of life? It certainly conveys nothing of the rollicking energy of the film. A terrible cover.
