Huge Thanks to 'Afraid of the Basement' for this Cannibal Holocaust Disney VHS!

The first time I saw the custom VHS tapes made by "Afraid of the Basement," I only knew I had to have one. I didn't know who the mastermind behind AOTB is (and I really still don't), but I know he makes unreal VHS fan art. 

Having grown up watching these exact Disney clamshell VHS tapes, the nostalgia factor alone makes me love these. In person, it looks and feels exactly like a vintage Disney VHS. It's really some next level fan art.

There's even a rewritten plot on the back of the movie in a whimsical Disney-esque style (see below). The entire thing is a never ending series of fine details.

Basically, you should stop reading my site and go see all of the custom VHS tapes made by Afraid of the Basement by clicking here. And be sure to check out the AOTB website for everything from videos and music to posters and prints.

Thank you AOTB. You're doing God's work. 

More pics below. 

Includes a Disney-esque plot summary. 

Even the tape looks 100% legit.

New Customs: Nintendo Black Box Figures

Other than Mario, Mega Man, and Link, there weren't a lot of classic NES characters that got their own merchandise back in the day. Luckily for you all, I took it upon myself to remedy that.

Some Genius Reimagined Modern Movies as Classic VHS Rentals

Sure, Einstein may have been considered a “genius.” But if he was so great, why didn’t he recreate a bunch of modern horror/sci fi movies as classic VHS tapes? Luckily, history has provided us with another genius by the name of Steelberg.

When 80’s Bad Guys Ruled the World

Nobody did bad guys quite like the 80s. They were scary, silly, stupid, nonsensical, basically everything a great villain should be. In case you were thinking of becoming a villain in today’s world, I suggest you take a few of these pointers from the vintage pros:

Blobby Goodness from the Super Secret Fun Club!

If you’ve never ordered anything from Super Secret Fun Club, you’re completely missing out. I was recently lucky enough to get one of their Blob figures, and I was blown away by it. SSFC’s simple, cartoony aesthetic blends so well with the movies they represent, like The Shining, Friday the 13th, Peewee’s Big Adventure and more.
