Deathstalker – The Worst VHS Covers
Deathstalker may be a cult classic, but its cover is more in line with a ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ expansion pack than a feature length film.
Clearly taking a hint from the 1982 classic, ‘Conan the Barbarian’, this cover tries in vain to imitate its epicness, but comes across looking like nothing more than a cheap copy. Even the monster and Deathstalker look bored, as if they’ve been holding that pose for hours while the artist paints their supposedly awesome battle.
Also, is it us or does that monster in the background seem out of place? Is he cheering on his fellow orc or is he just really nearsighted and thinks he’s got a shot at hitting Deathstalker?
