Few more promo/sample/original UK rental release sleeves.


 -


(Above) Promo/sample sleeve for the underatted (well in my opinion) 1986 Ron Howard comedy Gung Ho starring Michael Keaton,George Wendt,Mimi Rodgers,Gedde Wantanbe,John Turturro and distributed by Paramount Home Video.

Love the fun cover art for this one!


 -


(Above) Original VHS/Beta MGM/UA UK home video cover art for the awesome Sam Firstenberg action thriller Avenging Force starring Michael Dudikoff and the late great Steve James.

This along with the first two American Ninja's I definitely consider Dudikoff's best!


(Below) Original UK rental release sleeve of the 1983 Orion Pictures comedy drama Class starring Rob Lowe,Andrew McCarthy,Jaquelin Bisset,Cliff Robertson plus brief appearance's by John Cusack and Virginia Madsen.

Great sets Warrior.
I had forgotten about The Prince of Darkness, I must watch that. I like Michael Dudikoff, the was good in American Ninja, and he was in Bachelor Party. Class is a great film too.

Cheers guys here's a few more original UK VHS/Beta rental sleeves I own -


 -


(Above) Guild Home Video's UK rental sleeve for the entertaining 1984 comedy Making The Grade starring Judd Nelson,Jonna Lee,Dana Olsen,Ronald Lacey and Andrew Dice Clay.

Fun movie this and I like the cover art which incorporates the original US one sheet poster artwork!


 -


(Above) Cool killer bug movie from 1988 with some rather cool looking cover art courtesy of MGM/UA Home Video UK this would definitely catch your eye (no pun intended) when browsing your local video rental store.

A good watch this with some pretty icky effects work!


 -

(Above) 1985 UK Paramount CIC Home Video release cover art for the immensely enjoyable Carl Reiner comedy Summer Rental starring the late greats John Candy,Richard Crena plus Karen Austin,Joey Lawrence and Rip Torn.

Great fun and I dig the UK home video cover art that differs greatly from the also awesome and mostly used US theatrical art!

Latest Video Magazine pick up was this December 1989 edition of Video Today which features the adventure comedy Ghost Chase on the cover which stars Jason Lively,the beautiful Jill Whitlow (Night Of The Creeps,) and Chuck Mitchell who everyone will recognise as Porky from Porky's/Porky's Revenge.

Never seen it before but it looks fun!


 -


(Above) reviews section which features write ups on Critters 2, Gunrunner with Kevin Costner,Under The Gun with Sam Jones (Flash Gordon), fight flick The Cage with the Incredible Hulk himself Lou Ferringo and fun hillbilly flick Trapper County War with Don Swayze and Bo Hopkins.

All scored 3 out of 5 which rates them as Worth Seeing!


 -


(Above Left) A very favourable review for the terrific Bill Murray Christmas comedy Scrooged and on the adjacent page a sales advertisment featuring the likes of Warlock,Bad Taste,Rambo 3,The Blob etc.etc.


Did originally own this mag from when first released but my copy was starting to look a bit beat up from where I didn't look after so great as a teenager so it's great to replace it with this rather pristine looking replacement copy!

A few more UK VHS Beta rental promo/sale artwork sleeves starting with the fun action adventure The Band Of The Hand (Above) starring Stephen Lang,Michael Carmine,Lauren Holly,James Remar,Laurence Fishburne and was directed by Starkey And Hutch's Paul Michael Glaser.

Really cool poster art used for this release from RCA Columbia Band Of The Hand was played at some theatres here in UK as part of a double bill feature alongside the Underatted action adventure Let's Get Harry.


 -


(Above) Promotion sleeve for the UK rental release of the awesome 1983 cult classic comedy romance Valley Girl starring Nicolas Cage,Deborah Foreman, Elizabeth Daily and was directed by Martha Coolidge who made the equally awesome Real Genius two years later!

Don't dislike the cover but differs greatly from the artwork that was used for the US One Sheet Poster.


 -


(Above) Promotion copy of the UK VHS Betamax cover art for the well made 1987 crime drama Street Smart which features an outstanding performance from Morgan Freeman as a real lowlife pimp and features the late Christopher Reeve alongside Mimi Rodgers and was directed by Jerry Schatzberg who's only other feature I have seen was the enjoyable 1984 comedy drama No Small Affair though he has a few highly regarded directorial outings to his name!

Simple but effective cover art used for this UK Warner Home Video release.

A few of my latest 80s original UK Vhs/Beta cover sleeves -


 -
(Above) The original VHS/Beta cover for the UK Thorn EMI release Of The Slumber Party Murders Aka The Slumber Party Massacre


At a time we were under quite strict movie censorship here in the UK not only was this film cut by 30 seconds of gory action but the title was also altered from Slumber Party Massacre to Slumber Party Murders.

If you read up on the BBFC you'll see what problems the censorship board had with any film referencing Massacre in its title most noticeably The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 which was banned for many years here in Britain.


 -
(Above) The UK Thorn EMI VHS/Beta cover art for The Wild Geese 2.


Another UK Thorn EMI release this time the for me slightly underatted 1985 sequel The Wild Geese 2 which whilst nowhere near up to the standard of the original outing is still a fun watch with a pretty cast including Scott Glenn,Edward Fox and the beautiful Barbara Carrera.


 -
(Above) cover art for the CBS/FOX small box UK rental release of the 1984 Erotic Thriller Bedroom Eyes.


1984 CBS/FOX release of the William Fruet movie Bedroom Eyes which is quite a decent erotic thriller in which a city businessman who likes to go out for a regular late night jog and who also happens to be a bit of a Peeping Tom on the side one night witnesses a murder whilst staring through a neighbor's window.

Not 100% sure but I don't think this has had a DVD release yet but I'd have to check up again to be completely certain but for thriller fans it's not a bad watch at all!


 -
(Above) The CIC Paramount UK VHS/Beta cover art for the 1986 Thriller Blue City.

Another one that I think that while not great is still a bit under appreciated and that is the 1986 Thriller Blue City starring Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy and has a screenplay by the great Walter Hill (48HRS) with a score by Ry Cooder so with all them involved I suppose it was fair to expect something a bit more entertaining but still it's not bad and is perfectly watchable!


 -
(Above) The cover art for the 1982 UK Guild Home Video release of The Rats Aka Deadly Eyes.


The 1982 horror The Rats aka Deadly Eyes released here in the UK by a popular distributor in the day Guild Home Video who had 10 To Midnight,The Amityville Horror,The Last American Virgin amongst there vast catalogue of releases.

Enjoyable Canadian shot horror based I'd imagine very loosely on the James Herbert novel 'The Rats'.

My latest movie magazine pick up is Film Review Magazine June 1986 with Matt Dillon on the cover who had not long appeared in the espionage thriller Target alongside Gene Hackman and features articles on Kathleen Turner,Sting and C Thomas Howell plus a chance to win Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome on video.


 -


On the left page we have the beautiful Kelly Preston from that months release of the excellent romantic comedy Secret Admirer which also stars C Thomas Howell plus Lori Loughlin and on the adjoining page we have a review of the 80s John Hughes classic Pretty In Pink with Andrew McCarthy and Molly Ringwald.


 -


Above a few of that months releases which include Woody Allen's Hannah And Her Sisters, Spielberg's The Colour Purple starring Danny Glover and Whoopi Goldberg amongst others,Black Moon Rising with Tommy Lee Jones which I have always really dug and then lastly the great black comedy After Hours from Martin Scorsese.

Below an advert for an awesome double bill showing of First Blood and Rambo First Blood part 2 starring Slyvester Stallone -

Young Warrior - thanks for posting these. I didn't see the post before from Sept of the "Video Today" magazine. Some great movies on there. Love the Scrooged write up! Do you have several months/years of that magazine?

These magazines and video cover art are awesome. I'll have to look for some of these magazines when I go out to the antique stores.

I have got heaps of Video Today magazine gordongecko as not only did I collect it back in the day (early 80s) but have purchased a few missing copies over the last couple of years from eBay.


I would say I have the majority of the releases of the magazine from 1983 (and a few before then) onwards and then up until the magazine stopped printing at sometime I believe in the early 90s.

I'll put some more pics of random issues up on here as soon as I get the chance!

Cheers Pittsburghgirl yeah there definitely worth picking up as whenever I read one it takes me right back to my childhood and early to late teens!

Young Warrior - Sweet!!! I almost want to request a few write ups but I know that would be a lot to ask. If you do come across a Funny Farm, that would be cool to see! Guessing it would be pretty small.

I love looking through the old rocker magazines I picked up years ago- some Circus, Hit Parader, Rolling Stone. I picked one up I'd never heard of. I'll have to dig it up. I think it was a Seattle area based magazine. Brings me back to the good old days for sure Young Warrior!

Somewhere in one of my old Video Today's there's a review for Funny Farm I'll dig it out and also I have the original UK rental VHS/Beta sleeve and I'll take a photo of that as well!


That's what I think Pittsburghgirl as soon as I pick up one of these old film magazines it instantly takes me back to the good old days!

This is the original UK Warner Bros rental sleeve gordongecko I'll dig out the review for Funny Farm but if memory serves me right it scored a 3 out of 5 which was deemed as being good and worth the rental!


I enjoy Funny Farm and have it on a Double feature Blu Ray with Spies Like Us and actually picked it up stateside in a Walmart in Pigeon Forge some years back whilst on holiday!

Very cool work! Now I am the primary visitor to antique shops. I never thought that I would be interested in such a topic, but I bought speeches online at https://edubirdie.com/buy-speeches-online and decided to make some contribution to the work, stopped searching for materials for illustration. That is how I got here. Now I suspect that although I specialise in advertising, and therefore I looked at the posters, I feel that I can get hooked on other antiques as well.

Young Warrior - Thanks a lot for posting, I really appreciate it! Really cool. One of my all time favorites.

No rush on posting the review, just when you have extra time.

Still looking for the Funny Farm review Gordon I've definitely got it it's just a matter of finding it but I will!


 -


Latest magazine pick up is the March 86 edition of Video World magazine which that month featured reviews for Return Of The Jedi (5*), The Muppets Take Manhattan (4*),The Mean Season (4*),Wes Craven's made for TV horror - Chiller scored a 3,Tuff Turf also scored a 3 so did Lust In The Dust plus the Malcolm Mcdowell comedy Get Crazy,The Last Dragon a disappointing (2*),The Falcon And The Snowman (4*) and also starring Timothy Hutton Turk 182 which shared equal honors with Jedi as the months highest rated movie with a 5 star rating!


 -


Rating system was 5 stars - Without Fail, 4 stars - If You Can, 3 stars - If You've Got The Time, 2 stars - If You Must and lastly 1 star - At Your Peril.


 -


Started of as a great magazine this but sadly over the later years just turned into another top shelf lads mag where the movie content inside was more of the under the counter type and page after page became swallowed up by sex line adverts! 😁

A few of my original UK comedy vhs/beta rental sleeves -


 -


Original cic video sleeve for the musical comedy The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas (1982) starring Dolly Parton,Burt Reynolds,Dom Deluise and Charles Durning.

A fun movie this that I have not watched for a while but I remember there being some good laughs as well as some great songs!


 -


Warner home video UK rental sleeve with its original X certificate (the old equivalent of a UK 18 rating) with Dudley Moore and the beautiful Bo Derek, I can't remember the last time I watched this but my memory of it is really vague its one I definitely need to revisit!


 -


The old Thorn Emi UK VHS /beta rental sleeve for the very enjoyable 1983 comedy Mr Mom starring Terri Garr and the always terrific Michael Keaton.

Remember quite vividly renting this one out back in the day and its one I have since gone on to own on dvd and hopefully one day the Blu ray it's a fun family comedy!


 -


Early 90s culture clash comedy starring Tom Selleck and Ken Takakura which is directed by Fred Schepisi (Roxanne) this is another one that has been sometime since I last rewatched but do remember it being pretty funny and likeable overall and I know it's coming out on Blu Ray soon so will definitely look at revising it!
