Long before you could stream movies, people used to visit their local video rental store for VHS tapes. You’d walk in and see rows upon rows of genres. Romance, comedy, and the one our parents told us to stay away from: horror.
That’s because walking up and down the horror aisle wasn’t for the faint of heart. The front covers of these VHS tapes alone were graphic enough to give us nightmares. It was the equivalent to today’s thumbnail picture.
The following are some uber creepy ones that are sure to keep you up at night. If you still have a VHS player and are looking to add some tapes to your collection, checkout Wizard Video. They were a mass producer of cult horror films and are selling vintage VHS on their website.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Night Visitor, 1989. Try going to sleep after seeing that face.
Cannibal Holocaust, 1980. Vegetarianism hadn’t quite caught on yet.
Video Violence, 1987. Another benefit to streaming movies.
Creepozoids, 1987. That’s one giant insect/monster.
Trilogy of Terror II, 1996. Scary comes in all sizes.
The Headless Eyes, 1971. We’ll take our heads with a set of eyes. Thanks.
The Outing, 1987. On second thought, we’ll just stay home.
Galaxy of Terror, 1981. This is why we should leave space well enough alone.
Nail Gun Massacre, 1985. Just stick with hammers.
The Driller Killer, 1979. Another trip to the hardware store gone wrong.
Manhunter, 1986. This isn’t how you ask a woman out.
Alien Prey, 1977. This wouldn’t have happened if people hadn’t messed around in Galaxy of Terror.
The Mutilator, 1987. He’s not going to use that utensil to cook a meal.
