Love the Wild Things cover (especially the "The Max Collection" bit).

I'm not sure if 4 Months is suited for a cartoony cover, but I've been obsessed with the film recently, and I wanted to spend a bit more time on an original illustration for a cover.

Very nice! Too bad Strand got a hold of that one.

Very very nice. I definitely think the woman's body should be darker, as right now it looks rather faded.

If only Criterion could've released this...

I never heard of this film, this just made me want to check it out. :D

Could you upload the covers in a bigger version though?? Those 300x150-versions are so pixelated... ;)

Here's one I did a few days ago. Definitely one of the more overlooked art-films around, because... well, I think you can guess. ;)

Ha, there are actually some witches involved.It is a "classic" if only for the imaginative cinematography and the striking colours. I recommend checking ou a trailer first though, the acting is... quite different from other films...

SO, Photoshop is crap, but here is a review for a TEOREMA one. I used that wonderful japanese poster.

Congrats to the talented people who created the artwork for "Headless Woman" and "Stalker". I'd buy those, incited by the covers alone.

from the auteurs website: subject - films with dead animals in them

I was looking at the CCForum awards and noticed that the Richard Cranium award went to "Swimminghorses", and then like synergy that led to bad karma, went over to the Auteurs site and found he plies his tired wares there under his other nom de plume "So Lightly Here". That will teach me not to wander over to that sorry site. Someone who has an account over there should alert them.

Those who post at the Auteurs forum are already past the point of being helped

Was the 'cranium' award a shape of a horse head? I'm glad they getting some of the torture over at Auteurs.
