Rundown via Branded in the 80s:
So I initially started by envisioning some covers for more kid-centric 80s horror that I love, stuff that is a lot of fun but more on the obscure side. But then I decided to branch out by creating covers for film/books that have artwork that really messed with my head as a kid when I used to scan the horror section in the video store for awesome-looking VHS covers. I was always obsessed with the covers of films like Evilspeak and The Supernaturals for instance. But the granddaddy of disturbing horror VHS covers for me has always been Chopping Mall.
But I also wanted to highlight some of my personal favorite 80s era horror, stuff that would never have been made into a kid’s novelization or Choose Your Own Adventure-style book, but I would still buy in a heartbeat if they were real. Stuff like Kathryn Bigelow’s Near Dark or Clive Barker’s Nightbreed. There were also pieces of poster artwork that I felt screamed out for this treatment.
