Bad/Funny SW Cover Art


(Bill san Antonio) #1

So, what are your favorite bad or unintentionally funny cover artworks you’ve seen on spaghetti western releases: vhs, dvd, soundtrack or whatever.

I recently found this pic of australian vhs of Dirty Dogs. Yeah, picture of Almeria. That must be a thrilling film. :smiley:

And of course, the most bizarre spaghetti dvd cover:

How about this swedish one for REBELS ON THE LOOSE…?

This U.K pre-cert VHS cover to Get Mean makes Anthony look a bit fat looking and worried :D:

This cover of Bullet for the General has been mentioned few times already but…

It’s actually quite cool cover but if I had not seen the film I’d assume it’s a porn film or something like that. Such a sleazy picture.

Is she in the film? I think I would’ve remembered!
This one’s been mentioned before - but it is funny - and a better cover than the film!

U.K. video cover

looks like Franco Nero has taken a shitload of steroids, look at his arm!

Not necessarily a bad cover but why is Eli Wallach pictured?

Dutch Film Works fucked up more than once, with their Keoma dvd sporting the artwork of Django 2. On the bottom it even says “Django rides again”. Probably the worst cover in my collection.

Quite agree … This is the worst Danish spaghetti western cover of them all … Don’t know what the hell they were thinking. Would much rather have the guys working on the cover for the Danish A Bullet For the General-release shown above do one for this movie too… :slight_smile: … The title Guds Slemme Drenge translates to Gods Bad Boys which isn’t really that great either …

But hey Bill there certainly must be some insane Finnish covers, stop bashing the Danish ones …

[quote=“Søren, post:14, topic:1232”]But hey Bill there certainly must be some insane Finnish covers, stop bashing the Danish ones …[/quote]Most of the Finnish vhs covers are pretty good, the problem with them is that many of them use pictures from completely different movies or other western pictures which have nothing to do with the film itself. Can’t think of anything really bad at the moment.

This one for the They call me Hallelujah is quite bad. It’s a ok picture but the guy doesn’t look like Hilton and I can’t remember any caveman in the film either.


(Søren) #17

Looks like a demented version of Hilton … And no I don’t remember any cavemen in the movie either although sure they would have made the movie more enjoyable …

Edit: I think there is a problem with the cover being linked to in here, Bill. I had to call the image path directly forcing it to show. But if I refresh the page afterwards the cover is gone/non accessible again.

I uploaded the pic to database, so it should work now.

Somewhat unflattering photos of Hill and Spencer. Looks like paparazzi shots or something.

[/quote]Hmm, there seems to be some kind of Gollum in the picture too. ???
