Not sure of that cover but the film sounds like one for me to check out. Cheers for the update Jonny.

People always seem to be fixated on the covers. Granted, it's nice when there's great, original artwork used for releases but I'm sick of people whinging about the coverart, and the upcoming NIGHT OF THE CREEPS Blu-ray and DVD releases are a case point.

I don't know about anyone else, but I store my DVDs and Blu-rays spine-on, so the only time that I see the front covers is when I pull them out to watch them. No disrespect to Richard C, as he's not kicking off like some of the guys have done on other forums over NOTC, but what is it that these guys do with the covers? Do they pull them out and pull themselves-off over them?  :-* :-\

For the record, I think whoever Marc's got to do the cover has done a good job of replicating the feel of a typical seventies poster (with the title font and headshots along the top), while still managing to stay a little bit contemporary too. You've got to understand that us hardcore collectors are still the minority when it comes to the target audience of these releases. If companies have to resort to creating something that's got broad appeal in order to make more sales, then I'm not going to quibble. If companies like Nucleus and the like continue to sell decent quantities of these titles then it means they'll continue to put out other unreleased gems, and that's all that counts as far as I'm concerned.  :-X

We have absolutely no artwork for this film as it didn't get released anywhere. We've done what we feel is the very best we can, working from no artwork at all, just frame grabs.

All of our cover art is done by Graham Humphreys.

I really can't wait for this DVD! I've only seen this film once, when it was screened on BBC1 in the late 1980s or early 1990s, and it stuck in my mind ever since. I acquired a DVD-R rip of a VHS release a while ago, but I kept staving off watching the DVD-R in the hope that the film acquired a good DVD release. I'm enormously pleased with this news :)

I'm a big fan of this film and I'm thrilled to learn that it's finally getting a proper release. The vhs-rip that does the rounds was a godsend, but I'll be buying the DVD for sure.

 Excellent news !!  ;)
