This is a video nasty cover i designed for Empire movie magazines Kim Newman’s regular ‘Video Dungeon’ page, so a classic Video Nasty style art was required complete with generic scary house and screaming girl, plus the three chainsaw swipe, which is a bit of a homage to the ‘Pranks’ cover. (What’s better than putting one chainsaw on the cover… THREE chainsaws!!).
I then chose to have the Video Dungeon title as the film distributors name rather than the film title itself, i felt this would be a nice twist and allow me to emphasize the whole cheesy video nasty cover more, its also massive nod to my personal favorite VHS distributors of the 80’s Video Movies from Hokushin so that was a big referencing on this one.
