Video artwork

Recommended Posts

I was chucking out my vhs collection recently and saved some of the inlays because the artwork was great. I particularly enjoy the airbrush style art that was popular in the 80s. Check this bad boy out:

The film sucks, btw.

I remember this monstrosity staring at me in the local video shop. It's probably god-awful but as someone who's terrified of the dentist I was always grossed out.

The original The Dentist was fucking terrible, but number two had a great tagline on the poster - "the dentist 2: you know the drill"

 

I love the showdown in little Tokyo artwork in your sig, btw.. Great example of the style I'm talking about in this thread.

 

Edit: big trouble in little China, I meant. Always get the two mixed up.

Its Big Trouble in Little China artwork Chest not Showdown.

 

Its depressing how bad low budget DVD artwork is most of the time these days. Its all crap cut and paste screen grabs and stuff now. VHS sold rotten films soley on the badass covers. I spent hours in the video shop as a kid just starring at the awesome horror/action/comedy cases I would never be allowed to rent.

A little research done just now tells me that it appears I'm a big fan of Drew Struzan even though I had never heard of him, and that there is a documentary about him. Chokeout talked about it in the documentary thread recently, but I kinda glossed over because I didn't know who he was

 

gonna have to check that out.
