DVD Doppelgangers: The Collector vs. Blood Creek

Hey, it's time for another installment of "DVD Doppelgangers," in which I search the video store for DVD covers that are a little too similar to be a coincidence.

First up we have the 2009 horror film The Collector. It had a pretty cool premise: a burglar breaks into a home, only to discover someone far worse is already inside, torturing the family who lives there. He too becomes trapped inside the house, and has to rescue himself and the family from... the Collector.

Unfortunately, what could have been an above-average horror movie with a unique plot played out like a lame made for TV Syfy movie that somehow ended up at the cineplex by mistake. Not worth your time.

Next we have the 2009 horror movie Blood Creek. I've not seen this one and I know nothing about it, except that it was directed by Joel Schumacher. He's the guy who put nipples on the Batsuit in Batman Forever and Batman And Robin, so it has to be good, right?

The main font and layout is quite different on this DVD cover, so I'll give the designer credit there. But the big image of the back of the big giant scary head right in the middle-- sorry. I'm calling the Concept Police.
