PCU - Worst Cover Ever???

Just picked up PCU DVD. Hate to nit pick, especially since I never thought I'd see the day where this movie would be on DVD, but the DVD cover is awful. It has to be one of the worst photoshop jobs I've ever seen. Everybody looks like their head is pasted on someone else's body. At least it has an insert though, unlike Fletch Lives, which I also picked up today.

Might I ask where you found this movie? I checked 6 stores and found nothing.

I bought it for $9.99 at Movie Trading Company in Dallas. Unfortunately, these stores are only in Texas.

Actually, I went to the Arlington store on Cooper and 20. The guy was just putting them on the shelf. Some stores take their damn time so you might want to ask. Saw every new release except Carlito's Way and Brat Pack 3 Pack. Went to Costco and they didn't have any of the Brat Pack movies.

The new cover for The Frighteners might be the worst one I've seen. The cover for the 2 disc Mothman Prophecies is up there also.

Hey, if the guy from the San Jose Mercury News says it's a blast, that's good enough for me.

Well the cover is on par with the movie. PCU was one of the most idiotic flicks ive ever seen.

On that "Real Genius" cover, it's pretty obvious that they photoshopped his eyes, nose, mouth, and possibly his chin, onto a blank head.

The longer you at that thing, the freakier it gets.

Wow! I've never really realized that. All I knew was that, not looking at it super-close, it's easily the worst big head cover I've ever seen. Thank you for putting into words why it looks so awful.

The PCU cover is freaking terrible too, but I have yet to find it in any store.

Real genius is pretty bad, but my vote for worst cover goes to Predator 2...

Funny story, I recently purchased my girlfreidn both Predator movies, as she's a fan. I tried looking for nice Predator pictures to make a nice set of covers, but I couldn't find any... I found a decent one for Predator 2 though, which happened to be the original art. So I just used the original art for both covers and made all the elements match. Why is it a funny story? ok, maybe it's not, but to add insult to injury, my girlfriend could probably draw me some pretty nice Predator pictures (Here's one she did when she was 16) but I can't ask her, since I'll ruin the surprise.
