A rip-roaring documentary adventure tracing the historical roots and modern-day impact of the perhaps the most important audio/visual format to ever capture the moving image next to celluloid itself: the VHS tape. Witness the home video revolution and the subsequent collector-driven renaissance of the magnetic tape as director Josh Johnson weaves together a delirious tapestry of eccentric films and filmmaker interviews, including some with the medium's most infamous luminaries: Frank Henenlotter, Charles Band, Lloyd Kaufman, Rocky Nelson, Mamoru Oshii & Jason Eisener. VHS aficionados should arm themselves with No. 2 pencils and spiral notebooks in order to log all the ludicrous titles and beautiful box art that whip by in this nostalgic historical tour that'll leave you smiling and itching to drop a fortune at your surely struggling neighbourhood video outlet.
