Rewind This!

This is a fantastic documentary covering the affect VHS had on society and movies. It touches on boxart, video stores, format wars, and so much more. Some real basement dwelling freakos are in this so everyone here should love it. If the smell of those old tapes reminds of you of home you must see this.

Checked this out on VUDU. They took you from the format war to the death of VHS and the current revival of the format. Very cool. Thanks for the heads up this was worth a watch.

Oh yeah. Saw many titles I've never heard of and may never see. I feel the urge to watch Basket Case for October.

Yes! I have the tape ready to go. Might have to make one Friday or Saturday a Frank Henenlotter night.
