The Art of Packaging: VHS

"A Safari of No Return!"

What really needs to be said about these covers? They were a perfect storm of bad design. Bad illustration, bad type choices, bad photography – bad movies. But the tag lines – that’s were the real work was done. “It’s not human, and it’s got an axe!” as if being not human wasn’t scary enough. Poetry.

"It's Not Human, and it's Got an Axe"

"Sink Your Teeth Into Pure Terror"

"He's Seen Them Dancing Naked, Now He'll See Them Dead"

"Still Waters Run Deep, Dark and Deadly!"
