Gore-met's video cover brings back waves of nostalgia. I remember seeking it out every time my parents and I visited the local video store, staring at it from a safe distance.
I am quite a fan of Luigi Cozzi's wonderful gem, Contamination. It's a solid film worthy of one's time. It's hard to imagine the audience the below cover is appealing to however.

This selection also proves that films were added to...
