Fame at last!

So, I've chalked up my first appearance on a DVD cover! What a shame it's this... erm... "interesting" little offering from 1978.
Killer's Moon is a film everyone should see at least once, if not for the right reasons. And I'm sure I wrote funnier and pithier stuff in the review, which you can see here
Still, a DVD box, eh? How chuffed am I?
By the way, the film is possibly coming out in June this year. Previously it has only been available on pre-cert video, and will never, I promise you, appear on the telly.
