VHS Horror Box Art Hall of Fame

One of the greatest things about the era of VHS was the incredible box art that horror movies almost always had. Sometimes that box art was vastly superior to the actual movie.

Here I’ve listed the box art covers that are most memorable to me...whether it is because of the movie itself or just because I remember seeing it as a kid and have never forgotten it. 📼 💀 📼 💀 📼

Will update regularly...

Movies I’ve included that do not have the original artwork here but can be found on IMDb:
