Am I the only one that finds the box art butt ugly?

Let's hope for a nice exclusive steelbook with some nicer cover art.

nope.
The cover art is pretty damn ugly, IMO. Already don't care for yellow and the design doesn't seem to have little to do with the actual movie, which is excellent btw.

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.

I think it looks rad. It's got that loud 70's style to it. Never seen the flick, though.

The cover has everything to do with the actual movie. It's mimicking the old Kodachrome 40 Super 8 packaging. The asterisk in the top left hand corner and all.

It looks like the cover was designed by the same person who did that awful "Primal Fear" blu-ray cover

Great catch! I didn't see that at all. I still don't care for it, but the design definitely makes perfect sense.

I like how the cover is mimicking the old Super 8 packaging, but I still find it quite ugly. Definite purchase as this was a top 3 film for me this summer.
