Horror can be handy...

Sorry for the bad pun there, but a few days ago I was looking for a specific movie on Amazon, and I kept getting recommendations for other films. That is common, of course. What threw me for a loop is that all the movies seemed to have similar DVD covers. I've seen this thing time and time again, but felt compelled to share the unbelievable amount of covers that showed hands.
It's almost like *jazz hands* for the horror genre.
Not much originality here, folks.

Take a look --

We start with a couple shadowy hands...






Move on to some desperate hands...








Carefully placed hands...



Honestly - this is pretty near jazz hands....



Transportation is hell when you just can't get out...







We keep the shadowy hands coming...












Desperation sets in...









A WTF moment if I've ever seen one:



Two very different movies, two very similar uses of cutlery...








I've seen neither of these films but they look rather interchangeable...






Another Freddy-inspired look...but funny.



Here we have some lovely hands that seem to be missing something....like a body to go with it perhaps?



Who ever said all zombie films are alike? Hard to argue that they aren't while looking at the next two DVD's.







At least this one's clenched in a fist...




I'm still getting over this remake. Gah!





Another bloody mess...



And finally - just what's under your bed?

Holy crap! I never noticed that there are alot of those. Horror movies do like Jazz fingers as opposed to spirit fingers.

"*jazz hands* for the horror genre" lol! Sorry but it just conjured up some funny visuals. There are a lot of them, that's surprising. Guess is wouldn't create the sensation they're trying to get if they put a foot or an ear there instead of a hand. It'd be good for a giggle or WTF.

Nice observation, another common cover tends to be abandoned cars....
