It’s a world of mustached, muscled men, buxom beauties, big explosions, phallic guns, and nightmare-inducing monsters. From the sublime to the ridiculous, some are incredible works of art, some are insane, and some capture the tone of the films better than the films themselves. All are amazing and inspiring works of art that captivate the imagination. It’s like stepping back in time into your local video store!

Though I really enjoyed this book, it should be mentioned that the VHS cover art depicted within is from the UK. Being from the US, I did not recognize most of the art so this was not the nostalgia jam I was looking forward to. Nevertheless, this book is so well put together with each page showing full front, back and spine of the covers. I really hope that someone makes a book featuring American VHS cover art using this same format. It's a fantastic journey through a library of exciting, fantastic and lurid films with box art so enticing you'll want to take them to the checkout counter and rent them today!

If you love VHS artwork, buy this immediately. What makes this book special is that the majority of it is 1) very rare VHS titles with beautiful and often hilarious artwork and 2) if you grew up in the US like me, a lot of covers are burned into your memory, these are all UK VHS covers so you get to see alternate designs for films, the alternate artwork for "Troll" is especially hilarious. The layout and design of the book is beautiful and the VHS covers span all genres, comedy, horror, action, thriller, ect. Tom Hodge the author also does a little homework too and provides the distributors, years, alternate titles, and artists of the VHS covers to go with each title displayed. Tom Hodge is one of the great up and comers in the film poster art business and is always in demand, you may have seen his original work for posters to such films as "Hobo with a Shotgun" and "Almost Human", he has a very distinguished style. Buy this book before it's out of print, much like the only other previous VHS cover-art book "Portable Grindhouse."

Amazing. As someone born right at the dawn of the VHS era, many of my happy memories from childhood are going to the local video store to rent a movie or a nintendo game, and since that was before AV Club or Rotten Tomatoes you had no way of knowing if a movie was crap, so the crappiest movies (and during the straight to VHS craze there were MANY crappy movies) competed for attention by having the most exciting, outrageous covers, leading to a fairly unique form of art and presentation. This book does such a good job of collecting amazing cover art from this era. The nostalgia is so hard it hurts. I collect a lot of photo and art books, and this has immediately become one of my favorites in my collection.

I got this book as inspiration for my art -- a handy reference which would keep me from having to dig through my VHS collection to find a muse -- What I got was so much more than that. The thing I wasn't expecting and ended up loving was being able to read the back of each box! It made me remember what it was like being a kid in my local mom and pop video store. The fact that the art depicted in the book are from video releases in the UK made it that much more exciting to me because I've hardly ever seen any of these covers before. Also, I'm pretty sure that Graham Humphreys is my new favorite artist. Thank you Thomas Hodge for curating such a fascinating book!

Lots and lots of classic (and obscure) cover art, most are the English versions (and added plus for a Yank like myself.) Reproduction of the art is first class. as always, would have liked to see even more.
Musical Aura Island
Truly enjoyable, just reading the back cover synopses, the filmmakers thought they were making Star Wars .... But they're not.
Great Artwork, though, it was like 80s thrash or glam records the covers were misleading

This is a fantastic book of cover art put together by Tom Hodge, a man responsible for some of my favorite movie posters (he's responsible for the Hobo with a Shotgun poster) so you already know he's the perfect person to put this together. I absolutely love this book. My only gripe is the binding feels a bit weak. I'm a bit scared to open it more than a few times. Could just be my copy but even if the binding wears out I'll still love this book.
