What DVD has the worse cover art?

I just purchased Candyman SE last night and I must say the cover art was pretty bad, it was just ugly... What movies do you think has horrible and or unprofessional cover art?

Matrix Revolutions. I think instead of having four pictures on the box, maybe they could have had four different boxes and you choose which one you like best.

The alltime worst cover has still got to go to Koch Vision Home Entertainment's horrible "Cinema Sirens" release of Polanski's "REPULSION". Go to the following link and scroll down a bit... it's the mustard yellow colored cover with the posing body of a pink polka-dotted swimsuit model that has Catherine Deneuve's head photoshopped onto it: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/dvdcompare/repulsion.htm

Yes, the cover is cheesy by any standard, but if you've seen the film (or have even the slightest idea what it's about), then you'll understand fully why this is hands-down the worst cover of all time.

If you've seen the cover art for Garden State, I think we have a competitor for Real Genius.

Later.

Since I am a fan of the films, I have always found the Bourne Identity's cover art awful looking.


And here is the ugliness of the upcoming Supremacy cover art

- though it's an improvement over the film's one-sheet.
