So you’re a graphic designer in say, 1977, and your mission is to design the covers of action, adventure, and monster horror movies, 8MM Super 8. What do you do? You put on rock and roll music and you whip out your colors and big eyeballs! Fancy lettering, fire, and skulls! Actually you could probably get away with only fancy letters or fire. Take a peek through this collection of Super 8 lowbrow movie boxes and tell me the formula.
EDIT: OK so there are a few cartoons and other oddities in there! That’s true.
All nice though! I say so.
Big bang boom! These images come from all overs the internets, mostly from sale sites from the early 90′s and ebay. About 30 of the 126+ photos here come form an amazing site called Super 8 Hobby which has more details on every video than anyone would ever want. That’s what I like to see. Get. Involved. So hard.
These images should never die! Take them and remix them!
Explore and flip and flop and floop!
