Daily Grindhouse picks Top 10 CFQ covers
What are the ten best cover images ever published by Cinefantastique magazine? Daily Grindhouse weighs in on that question here, offering a Top Ten plus a few runners-up. Take a look at the whole list; it’s a fun trip down memory lane. I especially like the artwork for LOGAN’S RUN and THE BLACK HOLE (regardless of the quality of the movies), and the Daily Grindhouse pick for #1 – THE DEAD ZONE – is pretty damn good.
However, it’s in the nature of these lists that one must quibble with some of the entries (I think the KRULL cover is way too cartoony, and A BOY AND HIS DOG is far too murky). Also, I think several good covers were overlooked, so I am including them below. This is not a complete collection, just a sampling. I’m sure there are many others I have forgotten, which is why I liked the Daily Grindhouse list: it reminded me of several good ones I had not thought of in years.
