The Blog from Oi Polloi presents: by Sebastian Beesley •

These days its pretty easy to stream films online with a click of a mouse, on-demand services are everywhere and I haven’t bought a DVD for years. Long gone are the Saturday afternoons visiting a video rental shop. As a child of the 80s and 90s, a visit to the video rental shop was like entering a gateway to another reality, the experience was almost always better than the movie I walked away with.

When renting a video, I spent a long time in the horror section. The red 18 certificate – the forbidden fruit. Everyone wants what they cant have. But, it was the shamelessly tasteless and crude artwork that set my imagination into overdrive. I came across itsonlyamovie.co.uk recently and re-discovered the charm of old VHS horror artwork. There are literally hundreds of cover scans to look at, and I spent more time browsing this website than I’d like to admit.

These days its pretty easy to stream films online with a click of a mouse, on-demand services are everywhere and I haven't bought a DVD for years. Long gone are the Saturday afternoons visiting a video rental shop.

When renting a video, I spent a long time in the horror section. The red 18 certificate - the forbidden fruit. Everyone wants what they cant have. But, it was the shamelessly tasteless and crude artwork that set my imagination into overdrive. I came across itsonlyamovie.co.uk recently and re-discovered the charm of old VHS horror artwork.
