Arriving on home video next Tuesday, January 14 from MPI Home Video is Josh Johnson’s wonderful VHS doc Rewind This!
“An exploding industry without rules! Direct to-video madness! VHS vs. Beta! In the 1980s, videotape changed the world and laid the foundation for modern media culture. Rewind This! traces the rise and fall of VHS from its heyday as the mainstream home video format to its current status as a nostalgic relic and prize to collectors who still cherish it. Featuring interviews with both filmmakers and enthusiasts from the VHS era, including Troma legend Lloyd Kaufman, indie auteur Atom Egoyan, and Hobo with a Shotgun filmmaker Jason Eisener, Rewind This! is the definitive story of the format that came to be synonymous with the home video revolution. So gather up your friends and start the pizza party just make sure to have your tapes back on time.”
Special Features: Packed with extras, including commentary, additional footage, original animations, a special music video, and over an hour of bonus interview footage on laserdisc, remix culture, video panic and more!
