Hello and welcome to VHS Wasteland! VHS WASTELAND is your home for high resolution scans of rare, strange, and forgotten vhs covers. Each of these bizarre gems is scanned at 200 dpi. Our staff of over 40 contributors (and more added all the time) scans and posts between 15-30 new covers every day along with reviews, trailers and much more! So bookmark our homepage and check the site often! Simply click on the thumbnail of any vhs cover to download the full high res format. We'd also love submissions from you. If you have a vhs that is weird or rare, you can find info on what we are looking for here.
FREE PUPPIES: Want to help us out? An easy way to do so without any real effort on your part at all is to make this page your home page. It would give us more hits and help bring in a few precious pennies in ad space. Come on, do it now. Why are you not doing it? What, do you hate us or something? Do it and we'll be your best friend... And we'll give you a puppy. Legal disclaimer: the staff of vhs wasteland has no intentions of giving you a puppy.

You used to be cool man.
Also, why not visit our parent sites (madhatterdesign.net and serialkillercalendar.com). They have nothing to do with vhs covers but i think you might be pleasantly surprised by what you find. Or not. I don't know you. Maybe your not surprised by anything. Maybe your the kind of guy that sees a cow fall out of the sky and explode like a piñata and your all like "huh, that was weird." man. What's wrong with you anyway? Jeez. Some people.
OUR WISH LIST: Our wish list: we are always looking for new movie reviewers and vhs contributors to join our vhs wasteland team. If you have something strange or rare you, we would love to include it on the site. You would, of course, get full credit for your contribution and be added to our ever growing staff page. Some of the titles we are looking for right now include (but are in no way limited to) "dancing grannies" "bambi meets godzilla" and any kind of insane religious vhs. You can click here for instructions on how to scan and submit these covers or, if you are the coolest person ever and want us to promote the crap out of you (or your website) you can mail us the actual vhs tape to add to our collection. Either way, contact us for more info!

JULY 29 VHS MOVIE REVIEW : DARK DAY EXPRESS
Gee, thanks, Jesus Manuel! Now I'm gonna have to spend the rest of the evening on this blog instead of going to the disco. LMAO.
Well, if you read JM's comments to my previous post you'll know he suggested that DARK DAY EXPRESS may very well be a Thai film (or part of it) entitled MISSION HUNTER 2 and he provided a link to a store called eThaiCD.com. That store by the way is highly recommended. They've got tons of cool stuff, their prices are low, and postage to anywhere in the world is free! In the past, I've bought quite a few films there which you can't get anywhere else.
For instance, Thailand was the first country to release SUMMERTIME KILLER on English friendly DVD way before the US DVD came out. The only less exciting thing you'll have to deal with with some of their releases is they're only on VCD! And since Thailand was never invaded by the British they've never had regulations that secured English subtitles like with films from Hong Kong. Gee, Britain, "thanks" for not invading Thailand. :-/
Needless to say, I still don't have a copy of DARK DAY EXPRESS but I thought I might as well order the Thai VCD, not least because when other collectors (not least from KFC) find out about this they're gonna order the VCD which is soon gonna render it OOP and ultimately I'm gonna miss out on it. Well, *would have* if I hadn't ordered it right away. xD.
But, hey, of course it may not even be the same film!? O_O Maybe the HK company only used part of the cover for an unrelated film (or the Thai company did)? Who knows. But if that were the case it'd still mean I'd be getting yet another potentially cool trashy war flick. Yay.
Anyway, so I went to the Thai on-line web-store and discovered they had no less than FOUR VCD's with a film called MISSION HUNTER!! One was seemingly the first film and the remaining three were all alternative releases of the same MISSION HUNTER 2 film. Or so it seemed. But of course nothing's that simple in the world of trashy Vietnam war movies, is it. LOL.
I don't read Thai but some of the titles for MISSION HUNTER 2 don't look the same; If you read my reply to Jesus Manuel (in the last post) you'll see I discovered that one of the MISSION HUNTER 2 films has English subs. Well, actually I think the store fucked up that piece of info! Their subtitled VCD isn't MISSION HUNTER 2 but the first film, MISSION HUNTER. But then again... maybe MISSION HUNTER (the first one) is really the one they used for DARK DAY EXPERSS because the cover USES THE SAME IMAGES!! o_O
No, nothing comes easy in the world of psychotronic movies, does it. LOL. Anyhoo, like I said I've ordered the ones that weren't OOP (i.e. two of them) and whenever JM can get away from nappies and little newborn babies I'll try and bug him to ship a dvdr copy of the Spanish tape this way. :D
Here's the info for the four VCDs. If anybody can read Thai and can figure out what's what then I'd appreciate it heaps. Thanks.
