Item description for Shock! Horror!: Astounding Artwork From The Video Nasty Era by Marc Morris...

Jaw-dropping collection of UK horror video covers. Between 1980 and 1984, British video companies competed for shelf space with increasingly outrageous cover designs until a legal crackdown removed them from rental shops forever. This important book, from a private collection of rarities, documents those outlaw years of malevolent art with * 200 of the greatest horror video covers from the British 'video nasty' era * full-page, full-color reproductions * banned or suppressed video covers * covers for Evil Dead, Last House on the Left, Werewolves on Wheels, and Zombie Creeping Flesh This unabashed and uncensored collection celebrates the universal language of exploitation art in all its gory.

Reviews - What do customers think about Shock! Horror!: Astounding Artwork From The Video Nasty Era?

Fantastic look at exploitation  Sep 20, 2005
This book is a brilliant look at the way distributors and studios exploited film fans during the video nasty era, by not only evoking images for the video covers that were horrific, but in some cases actually had nothing to do with the film in question.

Which can lead you to discuss if, in fact, the studio and distributor were more responsible for the rise of the reputation of the "video nasty" than the actual films themselves.

An interesting look at a thankfully long gone era in film censorship.
"The lucky ones got their brains blown out!"  Aug 11, 2005
Beyond mandatory, if you don't own this book and keep it next to your bed then you're not a true horror fan. Hardcover with over 300 artworks from some of the wildest horror/exploitation movies ever released. You name it and it's here...BLOOD VENGEANCE, DEATH SHOCK, SS EXPERIMENT CAMP, THE BEAST IN HEAT, CANNIBAL TERROR, THE BLUE EYES OF THE BROKEN DOLL, INVASION OF THE BLOOD FARMERS, SATAN WAR, KILLER NUN, WOMEN BEHIND BARS, SCHOOLGIRLS IN CHAINS, LOVE CAMP 7, MARDI GRAS MASSACRE the list goes on and on.

Quit reading this review and just buy it. Maybe they'll come out with a part 2! Slasher fans also check out "Legacy of Blood", great book.
