We see very few JDMs published in Australia; so few, in fact, that I’ve only seen one other, plus there is a third that I haven’t found yet. One of the best things about foreign covers is seeing how original (or outlandish) they can be, or how they incorporate parts of the original American covers but modify them to suit local tastes. Unfortunately, the De Niro version of the film Cape Fear was so heavily publicized that some version of this movie poster cover appears on the covers from nine different countries, including, as we see today, Australia.

The nitpicker in me isn’t sure how to file this particular edition. The biggest letters in the title say it should be called Cape Fear, but you could argue that the title is The Executioners filmed as Cape Fear, or even that the title is The Executioners with some explanatory text describing the filming history. Your theories are eagerly anticipated.
