Horror V.H.S artwork was absolutely stunning, who hasn't go browsing rental stores and picked up a film because the cover looked awesome?
Of course we now know that a great cover didn't mean a great film but that's not the point. That cover truly was a work of art, there where so many great ones that I couldn't do my usual top ten list, I've had to double it this time.
So here is my top twenty Horror V.H.S. covers (the list is not in a favouritism order):
