Back in the Eighties there were certain movies I’d rent on VHS just because the cover art was so damned good. Sure, some of them ended up sucking in comparison to their flashy covers, but screw it! It was all part of the budding home video experience.

Thankfully The Dude Designs remembers those times very well and as a result has been cranking out an amazing canon of eye candy.

Poster Collective presents The Dude’s FIRST EVER limited edition print available for sale to the human public (and/or all types of computer-trained dogs or monkeys.) The print will be available for sale on Friday, October 19th, 2012 @ 10AM ET via Poster Collective right here. The sale page also includes an in-depth interview with The Dude on his concept for this poster, VHS memories, video nasties in the UK and much more.

The duo has also teamed up with Keep a Breast (the leading youth-focused, global, nonprofit breast cancer organization) to whom he will donate $1 for each poster sold and an extra $50 if all the posters sell out. October is National Breast Cancer Prevention Month.

Thanks to our friends at Bloody Disgusting who got the first look!

    You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

      I love it, very 80s.

      Great art, but bad choice of characters. “Video nasty” has a connotation of lesser-known, direct-to-video, exploitation horror. The glorious cover art style is certainly represented here, but the characters are far too mainstream. I’d have preferred to see more obscure characters that are more representative of that eighties video store experience. The Brain. Black Roses. The Video Dead. The Sleeping Car. The Curse. THOSE are the kind of crap I used to pick up for the artwork and sit through…for some reason I can’t explain. THOSE are the movies represented by this art style. The iconic characters here were known quantities that didn’t even use the art style being imitated.

      • The Unknown Murderer

        I absolutely agree with you! Cropsey, a deadite, the sasquatch from Night of the Demon…Jason does fit…Any of the movies from the Nasties list could’ve provided a small number of characters to use in the image. Chucky really tipped me off that something was ‘wrong’ because I think the Nasties ban might have been cooling down by ’88. Anyways, higher profile characters sell more posters. The art is really, really well done.

          That’s a great lineup for a poster. Where is that poster?

      Holy shit. Very cool.
