The Lost Art Of The Gaudy VHS Cover

As media becomes increasingly digitized there’s one thing which will be sorely missed by fans- the cover art. VHS covers were a wonder to behold as you strolled down the aisles of the video store, and even though many of them featured artwork that had very little to do with the movie itself the cover art was often a factor in deciding which movie to rent.

In fact, many VHS covers attempted to be as lurid as possible without showing full nudity or gore to tempt viewers into choosing that particular flick instead of the one with the boring cover.

Explore the lost art of the VHS cover at VHS Cover Junkie, where it's always a blockbuster when there are Hollywood bad boys on the cover.
