Modern films given a retro VHS makeover are wonderful

We'd make space for these on our shelves any day

Modern films given a retro VHS makeover are wonderful
26 July 2016

Retro VHS artwork. It's so hot right now.

This fledgling medium of nostalgic brilliance first came to our attention in April last year, when we discovered the artwork of Stan's VHS. We thought it was bloody fantastic.

Then, in May of this year, we found more cassette gold amongst the work of OffTrackOutlet. We wanted its scuffed brilliance on our shelves.

But now we've found a new favourite: Steelberg is our new king of cassettes. From Hammer horror knock-offs to superb character spin-offs, the modified covers of Steelberg's art will have you feeling like it's 1989 all over again.
