More VHS covers

Thanks to FRANK from Australian Video Covers blog I've now got a handful of new cool VHS covers from OZ (and thanks for the link!). Check them out, they're for these films THE EXECUTIONER PART II, WARCAMP, SIX SOLDIERS, SPYDER, HELL RAIDERS (Indonesia). I'd also like to send out a big cheers to everyone else who's sent me cool covers in the past (not least Simon, Jayson, Christian S, Hans-Jørn/Diabolik, several Cinehound members, people I don't even know, and everyone I can't remember right now). You guys rawk! (Twisted Sister music here or some such). Most of my own uploads are crappy scans from eBay and I've relied heavily on you guys to send me stuff. I've finally got a scanner again and I'll do scans of my own covers as well now. But still, if you've got covers that I don't have on here feel free to send me full scans of them. I'm not too interested in getting googled thumb sized covers or eBay covers but any old VHS covers in full size (and from other formats too, dvd / vcd / ld / blu-ray / betamax / video2000 / what-have-ya formats. And posters too) that you have is cool. I don't mind if the covers are from dubbed or cut versions, they're all interesting! And trailers! If you upload rare trailers that I don't have please let me know. Cheers.

Check Frank's blog here. He says there's 1500 Aussie VHS covers on there! My gawd!


Hmm, someone mentioned Tassie. ^_^ Back in the 90s I remember reading or hearing about when the police raided the Port Arthur Massacre guy's house and they found something like 2000 action films on VHS. A review somewhere (either in FATAL VISIONS zine or on EEEK! on RRR) mentioned that that was the reason BLOODSUCKING FREAKS was banned again after having been released. Not sure how much there is to that story but needless to say films don't make you an insane mass-murderer.

  1. Oh mate, thank you so much for the plug! And big thanks to everyone who sent you photos as well!
    Ill keep sending you more as i get hold of them.

    I just turned 12 when the Port Arthur Massacre happened and remember that day vividly (although i was nowhere near Port Arthur) Apparently Martin Bryant's video collection, while large wasn't the awesome collection of graphic sex and violence the media liked to portray, apparently he had 3 copy's of The Sound Of Music...Apparently he was the gunman.....

    Anyway I also went to the same High School as Bryant,about a week after it happened nearly every locker the students used had a 'M.B WAZ ERE 76' graffitied inside!

    Bit of trivia there haha!

    Cheers!

  2. That's too funny! LOL.

    BLAME THOSE BLOODY SOUND OF MUSIC TAPES! They're probably what drove him over the edge.

Yes, we have a comment filter now! It seems most comments these days come from shit spammers in India so there you go.

Bikini girls with machine guns

Yep, this video is from the one they're watching in Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN. It's an awesome video; I mean all it is is a bunch of scantly clad sexy babes with automatic guns going: "This is an AK47" pow pow pow pow - Haha. Absolutely fantastic! xD.
