Win “REWIND THIS!” DVD/VHS combo pack!
A few months ago, I had the pleasure of checking out a wonderful little documentary called REWIND THIS! The next day, I found myself at LA’s Amoeba Records grabbing all the used horror VHS tapes I could get my hands on. This documentary will renew your love of VHS, and Filmbuff/MPI just sent us a copy of the DVD/VHS combo pack to give away to one lucky reader. So dust off your VCR, grab that tethered remote control and take a trip back through video history!
Synopsis: “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.”
