The Mutilator (1985) - 1985 Vestron Video Rated & Unrated VHS and Betamax

.
I recently got a question on Facebook regarding the packaging difference between Vestron's cut and uncut tapes of Buddy Cooper's The Mutilator. It's fairly easy as the 84 minute R-rated version has a blue cover. The 86 minute Unrated version is in black. Both are properly labeled with their given version as well. Pardon the sticker on the Beta, it's sealed and there's no way of removing it without opening. Where's Code Red (or Scorpion Releasing) on this title?

I've always loved that coverart, since I was a wee lad.

Wow. That cover art really made the rounds. The Beta art is almost exactly the same, front and back, as the art on my Vestron Laserdisc! Of course, so is the PQ on the uber-crappy Vestron lasers... :grumbles:

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
