85 classic German VHS horror covers

I don’t remember what internet rabbit hole led me there, but a while back I ended up on a Flickr stream called Leopardtronics – and discovered a cache of high-res cover scans of German VHS tapes. I’ve compiled a batch of my favorite horror covers and shared them below. The feed has thousands of more images of VHS and vintage pulp novel art to sift through.

Pic of the Day: The Madonna-centric Italian poster for Vision Quest (1985)

Vision Quest italian poster

Set in Spokane, Washington, Vision Quest (1985) stars Matthew Modine as a high school wrestler who embarks on a¬†quixotic mission to drop multiple weight classes in order to take on his region’s top grappler.

Madonna makes a brief appearance in the film as a singer at a club crooning “Crazy for You.” That cameo was enough for Italian poster artist extraordinaire Enzo Sciotti to re-imagine the movie as a Madonna vehicle in which Modine also does a bit of wrestling – in a ring.
