Creepy Horror Movie Box Art - 'Monster Dog'

You can already tell that I'm old because I used the word "Box" in the title of this post, rather than "digital header image on popular movie streaming service".

While going through some old stuff yesterday I stumbled upon a VHS copy of Critters. Regardless of the thumbs of Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert being "up" about it, this image scared the living CRAP out of me as a kid.

Memories being what they are, I started to reminisce about the long forgotten VHS tape covers that used to scare me while my parents let me run around in my local video store, less attended than I probably should have been.

The above box art for Monster Dog was pretty high on the list of irreparably scarring my childhood.

What's scarier than Alice Coopers gaunt mug and sunken eyes? WEREWOLF Alice Cooper! The tale of Vince Raven and his unfortunate rock band totally creeped me out. I was afraid to pick it up and see what horrors lurked on the back panel images. This fear of skinless devil dogs was only further reinforced by Resident Evil later in my life.
