BEST:

Cannibal Messiah
Distributed by Srs Cinema

Here we have a perfect example of retro done right. Back in the day I used to rent horror movies on the strength of the box art alone. The artwork for Cannibal Messiah is DEFINITELY one that would have gone home with me and my friends for an evening of gut-munching mayhem. This sliver of eye candy has personality to spare! We like! We really like!

WORST:

Justice Served
Distributed by Breaking Glass Pictures

So here we have a dude in a chair with a hood over his head. Yep, a dude in a chair with a hood over his head. This is supposed to conjure wondrous thoughts of Shocker? Or Prison? Or any other bits of artwork that featured a dude in a chair, only done far better? There’s zero about this artwork that works. It’s dull, lifeless, and is about as eye-catching as a grain of white rice on a paper plate in a blizzard.
