I'm not generally a fan of chiseled emboss effects, but in this case it works, and I like the subtle color patterning of the typeface.Unfortunately I have a problem with the artwork.It is SO.GREEN. The green of his face does not match the green in the left corner. And the red in the right bottom corner makes it look somehow Christmasy. Frankly, I'd probably keep Mr. Green Amazon Head and drop that background.
Genre: Horror or paranormal.Having green and red on a cover is a dangerous color combination because those color combination are so tie to Christmas. If you can't live without those colors on the cover then I suggest that you tone them down and make them more of a tint. Because they are way to bright right now.
