Pandora opens the box and all the bad graphic design rushes out.

I wonder how many times that gigantic lid can be tilted back like that before the hinge gives out.

It's a protest of covers more than a cover. The best that can be said is that it is not factually inaccurate.

Everything about Forwarded Email's cover is perfect, they should have quit after that one

Good cover for that weird "Vietnam War nostalgia" audience, or what's left of it.

Might as well post this one, also from 1968.

I wonder if Wayne's contracts for these films stipulated that he would not have to do any running. Great choice of a still—looks like his head is melting like a candle.

Holy shit this is like those public domain DVDs of kung-fu films I used to buy as a teen at the 99¢ store.

Problem is the TT release is likely going to be the only way to get the uncut Snake in the Eagle's Shadow

Hopefully the awful cover art scares enough people away that it stays available long enough to be part of a TT sale.

That's horrible. I had to scan over the cover three times before I realized what the title was.

Not a DVD, but the cover for the new Fall album is so atrocious - even by Fall standards - that I'm starting to find it covertly awesome.

Maybe because its an audio disc.........but even though I know it says "new faCts emerge", I keep reading the third letter in the second word slightly differently.
