E Tanta paura (Plot of Fear)

Since Hoffman's children's story Der Struwwelpeter (or Shock Headed Peter) is central the the plot in Paolo Cavara's E Tanta paura, it's hardly surprising to find a few visual references to the book in the locandina. The artwork is by renowned comics artist Guido Crepax.
I assume the poster below is from a re-release. They've chosen to lose the Crepax art and push the giallo angle instead.

Interesting poster. I have this film, but have not gotten around to watching it. Hopefully I'll get to it soon.

I know the feeling brianiac. My "to watch" pile seems to be forever growing. I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to catch-up. E Tanta paura is worth watching though, especially if you've got the Raro dvd.
