IAmSteelberg on Instagram comes up with these awesome VHS boxes, Steelberg redesigns the grimy 1980s movie sleeves for recent genre films. The project is a charming cultural ouroboros, a nostalgic repackaging of modern films, many of which are sequels, reboots, or homages to the films of the VHS era.

Two weeks ago, the artist made this alternate cover for the underrated shark film The Shallows, a design that I bet would sell like hotcakes in the dorm room poster market. Steelberg uploaded another brilliant cover for Stranger Things this week, Netflix’s brilliant ’80s-inspired sci-fi thriller.
