I really like this! Despite a few unauthentic flaws, I think you're stuff is good; this box is no exception.

I keep picturing the screenshots on the back to have a 'ripped-up' sort of effect to them to accompany the horror theme, then this box would look like one of a classic slasher movie rental!

Thank you, but what do you mean with "unauthentic flaws"?
Please tell me what I did wrong, so I can improve my skills next time.

@AHO oh no it's fine, I'm just knit-picky when it comes to stupid things like age ratings being on all sides and the copyright info being 'authentic', but you should ignore that anyway. Lol
Other than that, you haven't really done anything wrong, but - despite me liking them - your boxes are usually quite basic: a single wallpaper with a few screenshots and text paragraphs. Idk what program you use, but try to be a little bit more interesting with your designs, like blending wallpapers with separate art (either your own or from online) with some renders. Idk what else to say really. Just challenge your imagination and your experience, I guess :/.

Well there was no space for age rating but what is an authentic copyright info. As far as I know there is nothing like a standard, they're often completly diffent on various covers. Anyway... :)

Yes I like this style, otherwise it would look like amateurish patchwork.

I watched your covers and know I know what you mean.
You create US covers right?

Me myself just create european or german covers, they have a different standard layout than the us ones. Especially the layout of the the back-cover, their logos und their positions....

@AHO I'm not saying all of your box arts aren't as authentic as they could be, it's just this box I'm talking about, and you used a PEGI age rating. That's why it bugs me :D.

@McKane
I do not agree! they are almost authentic, according to european
standards.

PEGI? Sure!
Why should I use ESRB?!
