The Boys, WandaVision … 64 series and films transformed into old school VHS

With the continued growth of VOD platforms like Netflix or Disney +, dematerialized and digital DVD players are definitely taking precedence. And let’s not talk about the footage from before that time, which is now completely out of date. Apart from that, the old has good. If there are so many nostalgics for the 1980s and 1990s, it is especially for this slightly garish and calming aesthetic, which is composed of a multitude of unique objects of its kind. VHS tapes are no exception to this rule and are in fact some of the most iconic banners of the time.

Based on this observation, a digital artist nicknamed Steelberg decided to surf the cassette aesthetic by imagining what today’s movies and series would look like if released in the 1980s and 1990s. On his Instagram account, the artist revealed a number of such creative concepts as Madeleine-de-Proustiens. Obviously a passion for horror cinema, Steelberg did not hesitate to play the map of the genre’s style codes.

We therefore invite you to discover 64 current films and series in an old-school VHS version. But beware of nostalgia.
