Hey

Fox have just released the region one artwork for Wrong Turn which is out the 14th October priced at around $27.98. I hope you like Eliza Dushku as I dont think they could have fitted more of her onto the cover if they tried Posted Image

Not thread crapping at all, cause I saw the movie and liked it, and I'm surprised they're using the theatrical poster, since it's pretty much the rule to just make something ugly for the DVD cover - but - this movie was such a blatant ripoff of The X-Files' episode "Home" from the 4th season. Some of the details and scenes are downright identical.

Yeah and that Home episode rips off The Hills Have Eyes, which is what Wrong Turn is also influenced from. I'm glad Fox is using the poster art for the cover, a nice change.

I like the cover, quite simple & uncluttered with the usual type-hype.

Would be nice if they include some extra grue, I found it less gruesome than the press would have us believe...and don't get me started on the darkness shrouded much touted tree murder!

And would DTS be too much to ask for?
It's a 'need to know' situation, Paramount need to know we want F13th 2-8's restored and uncensored. No amount of talking head extras will do.

I like the poster art and think that it makes for a good DVD cover.

I caught this at the theater, and look forward to adding it to my collection when it comes out on DVD. Hopefully in a DTS Special Unrated Edition, or am I hoping for just a little too much here? Posted Image

Nice cover art, I really enjoyed this movie and can't wait for this DVD. Pity there's no DTS as the sound at the cinema was fantastic.

Very appealing. I just wish they would make two covers. One with the quote for video stores and one clean one for collectors.
My Blu-ray collection so far:Casino Royale, The Fifth Element, 300, Unforgiven, T2, The Descent, The Road Warrior, The Untouchables, Purple Rain, Deliverance
