Interesting documentary for VHS, But a bit too long. I still have a VHS player.

I checked this documentary out based on the cover art and the sense of nostalgia I felt when looking at it. I had no idea the ride that I was in store for. Equally enlightening and poignant, this documentary not only sheds light on VHS collectors and the culture of VHS home video but also promotes an awareness of film history and marketing as well! Definitely a must watch for any "film buffs" out there!

A must see for anybody that has watched and enjoyed a movie on the VHS format. Cassandra Peterson is interviewed, maybe the first time I've seen here out of her "ELVIRA" character. Some of these titles are fetching $100's of dollars! My only problem with this doc. is that nobody mentions the metals such as chromium that is coated on the Mylar tape. Proper disposal is a good idea. See for more information.

Yeahhhhhh....... SAPL454 but they will be saying that about the current video format(s) in the not too distant future. It's all fluid, it's all relative. Respectfully, I hope you did not miss the true spirit and message of the documentary. Peace, Alexander of Sanctuary

The VHS format does not lend itself entirely to nostalgia-as far as collections go- but to diverse film making endeavors throughout the world as well.
