I think we can all agree that for all of its benefits, PhotoShop pretty much ruined the movie poster industry -- and nobody was hit harder than horror movies. Maybe it's just that I'm old enough to have memories of being absolutely terrified
of an aisle at my local video store, but I'm continually fascinated by the awesomely terrible art that used to adorn VHS boxes.
That's why today, with Halloween just around the corner, ComicsAlliance is continuing its mission to celebrate the more underappreciated art of pop culture by raiding CriticOnline's truly fantastic VHS cover archive
to pick out 25 of the most awesomely terrible (and terribly awesome) horror movie boxes ever!
No prizes for guessing what that
screenwriter's ex-wife's name was. For more, including The Satan Killer
and Death Ship
(a boat that eats people, not fanfic about Neil Gaiman's comics), check out 30 more of my picks
, or browse CriticOnline's gallery
for yourself. Clear out the rest of the day, though; you'll be there for a while.
