So a few days ago I was searching around and spied this Devil's Rejects cover on Google Images. The general layout actually points to this belonging to a series of snides from who, I'm assuming, was a specific bootlegger in the middle of the prior decade. The giveaway being the silver bars along the top, which I've seen on bootlegs of The Grudge (2004), Hostel (2005), Land of the Dead (2005), and The Ring Two (2005). I've seen other titles from around the same period as well, but they were of no interest to me (dramas, rom-coms).
|Look Ma, no title!|
And before I get an email from some asshat saying I'm supporting bootlegging, of course I don't support the practice. I haven't seen this style of fake in years from my usual flea market suspects (still in business, even after several raids!). The copies I've bought have been from your average Joe Schmo who's desperately trying to sell off his disc collection since Netflix came into his life. Has anyone seen other titles of note in this style? Is anyone else out there weird enough to also collect these? If so, you might get a kick of out this Saw IV bootleg I found a few years back with an even higher level of "forged" care.
