Every child of the 80s will remember going to the video store and trying to find a movie to rent. Back before the days of Blu-ray and On Demand, selecting a movie usually meant finding the flick with the coolest box art. Like modern posters, classic VHS art has been lost but thanks to the Internet there are countless reminders of these cool creations. This column will be dedicated to bringing you reminders of a bygone era and a look at how cool some of these movies looked on store shelves.

BMX BANDITS

This Nicole Kidman movie is best known as "that Nicole Kidman movie" but it is so much more. I mean, this movie has BMX stunts in it? Isn't that worth watching? Click here to purchase on Blu-ray/DVD.

THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK

While the original JURASSIC PARK may have the iconic logo we associate with the franchise, the lackluster sequel had a lenticular box that just kicked all sorts of ass. We need more lenticular Blu-rays. Click here to purchase on Blu-ray/DVD.

FEAR NO EVIL

A movie that blends rock music, teen angst, and Satan himself, this was the debut of Frank LaLoggia who would go on to direct the cult classic LADY IN WHITE  Click here to purchase on Blu-ray/DVD.

OVERKILL

I know nothing about this movie, but damn if that tagline doesn't make me want to see it. Not available on Blu-ray/DVD.

ACTION JACKSON

I remember watching this movie all the time as a kid. It really aged poorly, but Carl Weathers still kicks all sorts of ass. Why can't Dwayne Johnson remake this? Click here to purchase on Blu-ray/DVD.

SNUFF

The box art claims it was controversial and was not released for years, but now it is easily available in multiple formats. Whether it is worth viewing depends on your personal tastes. Still that box art is enticingly vague, isn't it?. Not currently available on Blu-Ray/DVD.

Feel free to pop us your favorite VHS box art and come back for each future column. You can send your finds or photos of your own VHS tapes to alexmaidy@joblo.com
