Doctor Bloodbath (Horror Hospital) (1973) - 1988 Bingo Video Inc. VHS

.
Bingo Video was a super shitty fly-by-nighter, but did they ever smash it outta the park with this batshit cover. Lurid re-titling, scrawled title font, attention-grabbing colors, shocked naked chick clutching her topside delicate bits, severed girl heads with googly eyes, bloody scalpel, insane doctor with bad teeth, and a tagline that's familiar to regulars of this blog. This one just screams the glory days of VHS rental. Unfortunately the SP-speed tape looks and plays like an EPer. Bad tracking lines, terrible picture quality, and after a few minutes the whole thing simply cuts out. Still, this artwork is a towering achievement...

Is it the uncut version? I believe the US release version titled COMPUTER KILLERS cut some nudity and gore (I think the Gorgon HORROR HOSPITAL was uncut).

If ever a VHS cover demanded a poster reproduction, this would be it. Even if the film sucks as much as the tape quality, the artwork is great.

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
