Here at HND, we are die-hard advocates of VHS. Many of us are collectors of these ancient relics of a better, purer, more exciting time in horror history while the rest of us just marvel at the artistry of the VHS cover art. With that in mind, we started this daily feature to celebrate all that is great about the hand-painted monsters and gorgeous gruesomeness that used to grace the boxes on the shelves of our local videostores. Many of these films never made the jump to DVD, and many more did make the jump, but at the expense of the spectacular cover art. So fast forward past the bump to take a gander; no need to adjust your tracking.
Today’s Terror Tape is…
Robo Vampire 1988
Exploitation films are shameless…and awesome. Quick, I’ll give you three guesses as to which far more popular film Robo Vampire is blatantly plagiarizing in this funky VHS cover. Magnum Entertainment cares little for your trifling copyright laws. But seriously, the idea of Robocop battling Chinese vampires? How has that sequel never come to fruition? Directive 5: drive a stake through the hearts of the undead.
