They Came From Within

A post in a VHS collectors group I belong to on Facebook – VHS Misfits – turned me on to the uncanny resemblance between Orion’s 1986 VHS release of David Cronenberg’s directorial debut They Came From Within and photographer Steve McCurry’s iconic “Afghan Girl” photo from the June 1985 issue of National Geographic.
