THE IRONMASTER, or simply IRONMASTER (1983) was made and released at the height of the VHS explosion so the number of covers aren't lacking. Directed by Umberto Lenzi. Most of the covers utilize the excellent artwork by Renato Casaro. 

Above and below: US releases. I still have the VHS clamshell case above in my collection. In fact, I first saw this movie with this tape.

First class collection. All of them share ridiculous swords and ax heads.

Oh yes; the Italian sword & Sorcery boom movies.. Frank Frazetta-like poster artwork, with muscled heroes, busty ladies, big axes and mammoths. It's almost an art form unto itself.
