An artist named Josh Schafer, who created an independent publication called Lunchmeat Magazine, has just released a custom 2018 “Home Video Horrors” calendar. The calendar features some really creative VHS box covers of fictional horror movies, accompanied by an image that encapsulates whichever movie is on the cover. For instance, there’s a movie called Bloody Birthday next to a suspiciously red birthday cake, unceremoniously impaled with a plastic fork.
A press release from Lunchmeat gives some details on the new calendar:
“LUNCHMEAT and photographer extraordinaire Jacky Lawrence proudly present HOME VIDEO HORRORS VOL. 2: an all-new 12-month, full-color calendar for 2018 collecting an eye-popping selection of the most spectacular slabs of cult VHS horror ever to stalk the video store!
Featuring the phenomenal photography of visual artist Jacky Lawrence, each month vibrantly celebrates a different VHS video cover, thoughtfully set in a scene reflective of the film’s content!
The date grid for each month is also pumped up with a bunch of too groovy celebration indications for an array of special days ranging from National VCR Day to Tortilla Chip Day to Elvira’s Birthday! What’s more, there’s a sweet chunk of home video and horror-driven trivia attached to each month! DIG ON IT!
The HOME VIDEO HORRORS VOL. 2 calendar measures approx. 8.5 X 11 inches closed and 17 x 11 inches opened and is printed on high quality, full-color semi-gloss paper.”
This calendar marks the second year in a row that Lunchmeat has released a “Home Video Horrors” calendar, and hopefully, they continue to do so every year, especially since the calendars tend to sell out fast. This year, only 100 copies were printed, and unfortunately, they’re already sold out. However, maybe they’d consider making more if there’s enough demand. Below, you can check out a few images from the new calendar; specifically May, July, August, and November.
Even though the calendars are sold out, you can check out the Lunchmeat website here and see some of the other original artwork they have for sale.
