Uncovered: Playtime with Arts and Crafts

Aww, how cute. Some kids designed movie poster art with paper cut-outs and craft supplies… Wait, hold on a second. You’re telling me these aren’t the work of children? These are actual Blu-ray cases designed by a studio marketing department and sold at retail? Oh, holy hell…

As spotted by poster Krawk in our site forum, the following Blu-ray reissues of MGM titles popped up at Walmart on May 20th featuring a bizarre and mostly inappropiate theme. All of the case art looks like it was either designed by grade-schoolers or drawn for the purpose of illustrating a children’s storybook. This is particularly jarring given that many of the discs are for R-rated movies with violent, scary or sexual content.

The only of these that I think look sort-of OK are ‘It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World’, ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’, ‘West Side Story’ and maybe ‘Spaceballs’. The rest…? Oh my dear lord, what was the studio thinking?

    Can’t wait for an unknowing parent to buy Robocop for there kid thinking it’s like transformer cartoon, muahahaha!

  2. The only thing I am thinking that would entice people to buy these horrible covered movies (except for a good laugh or a joke/prank) is that fact they’re selling at $9 each. Unless these movies already sell for less than that.
