You’ll get what you paid for with this irreverent look at the humble but mighty VHS!
One invention changed the way film was shot, distributed and consumed, brought pornography inside (nearly) every home, threatened theatrical screenings and popularised DIY no-budget cinema. Nope, not the internet: the VHS tape.
Who knew the definitive history of the home video revolution would be so hilarious and entertaining? With great insights from VHS enthusiasts such as Mamoru Oshii, Atom Egoyan and Hobo With A Shotgun’s Jason Eisener, as well as key players at Troma, Everything Is Terrible! or Toei Video in Japan, Rewind This! celebrates an endangered cinema and the fearless collectors who keep it alive. Filled with eccentrics, fanatics and more lolz than a week on YouTube, this incredible documentary is a must-see for lovers of trash movies and cinephiles alike.
“A fun, insightful, and exhaustive look at the history of VHS and the sub-culture that remains devoted to the format." – Collider
