I'm feeling that this work is pretty mush done here, until the real SF are released. I will then replace the faux features listed. I had to sharpen the larger vampire on the back a bit to blend with the other higher res pics. if all is well here, i will post with enough positive feedback. thanks all! ; )

Overall pretty cool looking, however.. as you asked for feedback. Your gonna get it!
First off, I'd kick up the contrast a bit or play with the levels.. I prefer a cover when black is black and not "almost greyish".
And personally I'd try another color for the blur behind the tagline (and quote), perhaps even try blending it as overlay. That could turn out cool..
As for the plot I'd down the size 1-2 pt's and add some line-spacing instead, big sized plots just looks like spacefillers to me..
The credits could do with another font, or just settings. Looks way to thin to be easily read, is it Univesal Acc. your using? If so, you must have done something to the height/width settings - try resetting to 100%/100% which works fine. And also, I think you want to try and rework the whole legal-layout. Sure, new layouts are always welcome but if you want to go for the retailish style you've used for the rest of the cover.. the legals are just as important. I'd get the adress/legal on the bottom somwhere, perhaps on the left side. And some logos next to it.
And above that the rest of the logos and to top it off - the "presented in widescreeeeen"-thingy.
But hey, it's your cover and it looks pretty cool already. With some touching up, I'm guessing it's gonna be wicked.
Nice work so far!

I thought i did have the address on there. Isn't it 10202 W Washington blvd., Culver City, California 90232-3195, listed right below the rating?As for extra logos, I can't think of any that would fit that don't already have. Any suggestions?
On the credits for this work, i used Top Billing font. I'll play with it a bit.
I never checked to see how the Widescreen banner would look, as i usually don't care for them. (personal pref.) but I will look into it, as i'm certainely not opposed.
And as for the plot, you mean make it smaller with more spaces between each line line? I didn't think the plot was that big on this one, as I've seen much, much worse. lol Guess I just wanted to keep it more condensed and together, as opposed to spaced out.
All and all I will play around with it using all of your advice. Thanks a million for taking the time to critique, it only makes me a better person and artist.; )

Hehehehehe...............i think Bar must have been drinking to miss the address.......... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

OK my turn................Drop the front tags or at least the motion blur...........it looks too "naff".........do the same with the back tag!
Move the address over to the left and line it up with the "dvd requirement" text.
Space out the synopsis as Bar mentioned.
The colour overall is fine for me..........but, see what you think after trying Bars suggestion of altering the levels or contrast.
The thing I dislike most is the bright, bright, bright white features text..............

But, hey you have done an excellent job m8............I think it looks cool overall and just needs tweaking here and there (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cheers.gif)

Thanks Kylumi, I will work on those suggestions tonight. I did a bit of brightness/contrast control and I agree that it does look better. more vibrant.

Is there anything you or anyone else would suggest with the movie stills framing? Or even something under the stills, over the comic strip scene.
it just seems a bit plain to me.
