Spotlight On: Retro VHS Look Region A Blu-rays from Mill Creek Entertainment30 Oct 2019
A new trend has emerged among physical Blu-ray media releases: retro VHS-style packaging. Blu-ray discs of movies and TV shows from the 1980s, or that take place in the 1980s, are being released in packaging designed to look - and in some cases, feel - like the VHS videocassettes of the era.
Mill Creek Entertainment has released 10 films from the 1980s (okay, one is from the early 1990s) onto Blu-ray with vintage VHS-inspired slipsleeves. Each sleeve is meant to resemble the original U.K. VHS box art with faux rental stickers on it, while giving the appearance of a videocassette being pulled out from the right side, complete with tape label side on the right spine.
