I can admit that I do still own a VCR, even though it’s resting peacefully in my storage locker right now. I’ve been thinking of nudging it a little though and waking it up, because I’m on a bit of a VHS horror movie kick lately. I know I’m not the only one, so VHS lovers unite. And let’s all unite and look at this new clamshell VHS release for the infamous movie Faces Of Death from Gorgon Video!
Ahhhh. That cover just brought back memories of when I first watched Faces Of Death and watched the guy get the electric chair and have his eyeballs burst, with blood flowing down his face. Fake, sure, but still memorable. This is the original banned cover and comes in the already mentioned snazzy clamshell case. There’s something about the clamshell cases that makes me miss the VHS days even more by the way. If you’re interested in this, you can pick up a copy HERE for a mere $20 at Gorgon Video’s website. They are limited – so act fast so you can snatch it up, pop it in your VCR, and watch a chicken get it’s head cut off and cluck around with a bloody headless stump. Fun!
As a horror memorabilia collector, I’m always on the lookout for the next little nugget that I can put next to my Clint Howard autographed VHS copy of Ice Cream Man. A while back, I remember stumbling upon a ‘limited edition’ clamshell VHS copy of the 2009 movie The House Of The Devil. Sadly, it sold out before I could grab one, but it looks like there are now 7 left up on the Gorgon Video website!
I always loved the big clamshell VHS cases. Sure they were bulky and sometimes wouldn’t fit on your shelf, but there’s something about the nostalgia of them that gets a thumbs up from me every time. And add to that the fact that The House Of The Devil is one of my favorite horror movies from the last decade, and this is a win-win combination! So if you would like to snatch up one of the last 7 remaining copies, head on over to the Gorgon Video website HERE and go for it. And then head to eBay and grab a VHS player so you can play it.
