Old Greek VHS tapes have long been known to astute collectors and fans of international exploitation cinema as being fantastic sources of some of the murkier, more rare obscurities in the cult pantheon. Greece imported movies from the US, Italy, Turkey, Indonesia, India, Japan, etc. during the seemingly extensive video boom of the 1980s; these treasures often blasted staggering levels of home-grown weirdness and sometimesthey were just full of sex and/or violence.
Our Hellenic pal Miltos aka CINEHOUND has graciously and in service to international pop culture awareness posted up a fab gallery of VHS cover art from this Lost Video Golden Age over at his public cult film forum, and I present here a smattering of the jewels contained therein.
