More than 100 French VHS horror covers

The term “Grand Guignol” – slathered as a descriptor onto genre films which delight in over-the-top gruesomeness – originated at the turn of the 20th century at a Paris theatre famed for creating grisly, realistic horrors on stage. The Grand Guignol tradition lived on in France’s VHS covert art, a gallery of which can be found below.

The covers come from a variety of sources, but the majority are courtesy of French Rare VHS Covers, Nanarland and L’Antre de l’horreur.
