Artist’s Miniature Takes You Back To The Glory Days of Horror VHS

by

VHS has seen something of a revival in recent years. The popularity of 80s inspired¬†Stranger Things, as well as fan nostalgia as films move to mainly online distribution might have something to do with the trend. We’ve spotlighted a few projects which pay tribute to the format, such as the creation of horror characters using tapes, and VHS covers created for modern films.

British FX artist Andrew Glazebrook¬†revealed his own tribute to the era in a detailed construction of a video store. The 1/25 scale miniature of this aspect of his childhood is incredible – with the horror section displayed at the front of the ‘store’. Posters for various horror and sci-fi films also cover the wall, with the piece deliberately aged to convey the often run-down nature of the independent stores in the 80s and 90s.

He also created a VHS style video tour of the shop, with a somewhat haunting feel. Glazebrook also plans to build the store exterior, with a similar nostalgia style. He has tones more horror props and designs on his Facebook – make sure you check those out too.
