When I was in high school the only video store around was some dude's house that he had converted into a VHS/Beta rental.  There were no walls of "new releases", just shelves and shelves of videos - most of which were far off the beaten path.

The covers were fairly beat up as video stores hadn't learned to not let the customers' take the original box home yet.  They were also fairly expensive to rent, and in order to be one of the Chosen Ones issued a rental card you had to put up a hefty down payment.

One of the first movies I rented was The Gates of Hell because my friend and I thought the cover looked cool.... and here I am nearly thirty years later still admiring these same horror VHS covers.....
