Home video changed the world. The cultural and historical impact of the VHS tape was enormous. This film traces the ripples of that impact by examining the myriad aspects of society that were altered by the creation of videotape.
Actor, writer and life-long horror film aficionado Mark Gatiss follows his 'A History of Horror' with this exploration of European horror cinema. Including interviews with directors Dario Argento and Guillermo del Toro amongst others.

An unveiling of a culture most people would scuff at.
The film shares the inner workings of passionate collectors of the solid box tapes from times past. The honesty and personality of each interviewee expands on the culture and its many attributes. Further, the aesthetics and visual stimulus of rare movie cover art, collectors' showcases, and video stores around the US was extremely entertaining. Being uneducated in the landscape of VHS, I still found it easy to follow and easy grasp the value, importance, and satire in the film. I highly recommend this film for any one who appreciates the vastness of the human experience, because I assure you that it showcases an interesting side of it.
