I'll be ordering this and a couple more from Wicked, tomorrow. :)
Definitely getting a "Fantastic Voyage" vibe from that Cover B so that's my preferred choice.
Ermey makes this flik (like most he's in) worth the pick-up.

Cover B looks very good, I can't decide if B or C. C looks a little like The Shape of Water, but cool anyway.
With their new releases Wicked Vision shows that they have an eye for good looking covers and they bring out some titles people ask for.I will buy that "Highway to Hell" Cover B one as well. That cover is awesome and I hope the movie as well.
The spanish Blu-Ray was a bootleg so it is the first official release for Europe.

Did you get the "Die Monster Die" and "Tales that Witness Madness" Mediabooks in the meantime?

Yes, @komor , I received them both and a few others as well. :)

I'd also like to mention, as I am an incredibly avid fan of the schlocky '50s Sci-Fi fliks, I've also ordered the latest;
"Anolis: Galerie des Grauens" box set via 'Wicked'.
1st release is; "It! The Terror From Beyond Space!" with the 2nd being "Donovan's Brain".
Not totally sure on the others coming down the pipe (10 film set, about 1 out every quarter).
I believe this is Anolis's 3rd release of such sets. though first was only dvd.

I agree that Wicked has definitely created a foothold in the spooky/sci-fi media and look forward to their other new releases. :emb:

The "Galerie des Grauens" series was brought to life from a TV-show called SCHLEFAZ and showed Sci-Fi and Horror movies, that were edited especially for this show. It had such success that they brought them remastered on Blu-ray in some nice editions with booklet and many extras. I have "The H-Man" aka "Das Grauen schleicht durch Tokio" I wasn't aware of that there are Box-sets available. I just pick somes out. Donovan's Hirn will be my next purchas, because I always liked Braindead, that was released months ago and probably is inspired of it. There is also a series from "Media Target Distribution" called "Classic-Chiller Collection" that is quite interesting.

Oh! very cool @komor :)
I'm especially pleased to see Otakar Vavra's "Krakatit" get a very cool MB!
I have the Criterion releases of "Island of Lost Souls" (amaray and Steel) but if the MB has a cool booklet and such, I may track it down.
Funny, I have yet to purchase any ed of "The Mole People" even though there's a few out in the wild.
As a young lad, I always felt so very sorry for the Mole Men so just never grabbed a copy later.
I may rectify that.

If I may, I thought I'd take a moment and display my pick-ups of my Wicked-Shop releases so far.
Still awaiting a few but here's what has arrived so far;

I have The Devils Backbone, The Deadly Bees, The Curse and TTWM. I also was lucky to get a copy of "The Brood" from the Wicked Metal Collection. I additionally bought the VHS-edition, that is also looking very nice. But with the Tape and VHS editions I often had to realize that they fell in price afterwards to nearly 1/2, so they weren't the best deal. I also have the Count Yorga one as Mediabook, but there were no discs in it - bummer. Still have no replacement, because it was one of the last copies.

The Chiller Collection movies all come in DVD-cases with Slipbox and booklet. I am thinking about to buy The Manster.
