This is the image they used for the laserdisc edition of the film, but there's also another poster for it (not sure which came first):

The two styles differ because they are advertising the film to different audiences. The one shown in the post (style B) was used in theatres where people may have been used to Harrington's artier leanings and is much rarer. The yellow "style A" design was the standard (and far more prevalent) poster designed for the everyday horror crowd that the film aimed for as well.
