R76 That is eerie because (a): I just watched "Sisters" a couple of weeks ago, and (b): I had a dream last night that I was rushing to scramble up all the rare VHS tapes I could find to copy onto DVD, particularly on that WB label (WCI). I worked at a video store in the 1980's and 90's that had a huge collection of rare titles. As it is, I have many of the films from that very dull looking label. They had little creativity on VHS in the early 80's. Even worse were the Magnetic Video where the tapes didn't always play very well. "Valley of the Dolls" was rented so much that the picture, even though the tape was fine, began to distort the top of the screen so everybody looked like they had huge Beavis & Buthead foreheads.

Laser Disc, DVD and Blu-Ray have gradually made films look better and better. But VHS will always be special to me because I saw so many horror films in that format and even as clear and crisp as a 1080p disc or 4K disc can make Halloween, Friday the 13th, April Fool's Day or Vamp look, nothing beats the low resolution, dark horror scenes. There was something endearing about them and VHS actually heightened the horror.
This is a great thread that reminds me of going to the video store and being overwhelmed by the VHS art was such a part of the movie-renting experience. Many people forget that back in the '80s, renting was a new and big deal to families. Some of us even RENTED VHS machines! When a film was released on VHS, they were sold for expensive prices. It's not like it is today when a film is released on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD in multiple formats.
I love the Cat People (1982) cover art. As well, love the Bananarama Greatest Hits Collection cover for some reason. VHS music videos were big back then. Also loved the double VHS releases like Doctor Zhivago or New York, New York.
But agree with many others that the horror ones stood out. Love The Fury VHS.

There really is something about watching a low budget horror movie on VHS. The Blu-Rays are almost too bright and crisp these days. It feels weird to watch a Friday the 13th sequel all cleaned up.
I know all things change and usually in the name of progress, but I hate that video stores are so scarce these days. They were just like libraries to me. They served an important function to society and culture. Netflix and Amazon aren't the same. At least you knew that the video store would have the same movies every time you went there. You wouldn't usually stop by and find out that something you'd had your eye on for months was now suddenly off the shelves unless someone else had already rented it for the week. That's what bugs me the most about streaming. They take movies off all the time without warning.

I LOVE watching every movie on Blu Ray up to 4k. The images are noticeably better and closer to what film looked like in the theaters. Low and dingy resolution always sucked.
And although I loved video stores ‚— I worked for 2 of them — you can still keep track of movies you want to watch digitally. Netflix used to have a queue feature for discs; now they have "My List." Amazon has its "Wish List" and suggestions for similar titles of any title you like.
Personally, I keep a Word document with all the titles I want to watch eventually. It's a movie bucket list and I can pick by genre whenever I'm in the mood.

[quote] There really is something about watching a low budget horror movie on VHS. The Blu-Rays are almost too bright and crisp these days. It feels weird to watch a Friday the 13th sequel all cleaned up.
It's become quite an expensive hobby. Even VHS players are rare to find cheap and in good condition. I think I'll stick to just admiring the covers.

Jason Goes to Hell disturbed me!! I rented all the Friday the 13th movies at some point, but I could not bring myself to rent this one. I don't think I ever ended up watching it.

You're not missing much. I think it's the worst Friday movie.

How dare you. What other Friday the 13th movie has a mutant Jason-slug thing crawling up his long lost sister’s cooter?

Jason Goes To Hell has its defenders. I don't think I've seen it in a good 15 or 20 years, so I'm excited to check it out again when that box set hits next month.

Jason Goes to Hell isn't as bad as people say. They only hate on it because Jason has less screen time. It's a fun and brutal body snatcher type of flick. I know many people who are excited it's finally being released uncut.

In retrospect, I'm glad the VHS cover for Jason Goes to Hell. It sounds FUCKED up!! Sounds like it would have given me nightmares.

In the mid 80 to late 80's I was anywhere from 8-13.
Anyway, for years, NOTHING enticed me more than the cover of Angel, starring the brilliant thespian, Ms. Donna Wilkes.
I KNEW this was my film and I would see it someday when I was old enough!!!! It looked dirty, scary, tawdry, lurid, and even more dirty.

I was always fascinated by Slap Her, Shes French, but my friend saw it and said it wasn't very good.

R182 Well, that film certainly would have traumatized me had I rented it! 😬

I rented Jason Goes To Hell for a slumber party when I was 8 or 9 and the kid that came to our house made us call his mom to come pick him up. He was so traumatized. I felt like an asshole, but it was just a movie.

Haha that’s funny. I rented it for my 12th bday party and we all thought it was hilarious when that lady who was fucking that dude in the tent got bisected with a tent pole or something like that.
A few years before that I showed Candyman at a sleepover and one of the kids called his mom to be picked up. But that was a creepy movie so I understood.
And I traumatized my best friend when we were six and we watched Child’s Play. He was scared as shit and legit threw my My Buddy doll out in the woods. Lol, good times.

That takes me back. I used to love renting scary movies for sleepovers and freaking out my classmates.

I can still recall the trek I went on trying to find Eyes of Laura Mars at a local video store. Neither of the two around my house had it, so my mom and I had to drive across town to find a copy. That was part of the fun of movie rental stores. There were some that had just about everything, but none of them had everything. It was like a scavenger hunt to track down sequels in big franchises sometimes. One store would have A Nightmare on Elm Street 1, 3, 4, and 5, but none of the others, so you'd have to find 2 and 6 somewhere else.

I totally forgot about this cover which differs from the current artwork on the dvds.

All the Police Academy films had great artwork. But this one was my favorite. The movie itself was awful.
