All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Rewind This (2013)

Director: Josh Johnson


Premise:
The story of how VHS tape changed the movie industry.

My Take:
Being from the era of the tape I enjoyed this documentary immensely. It covers tape traders, current collectors, how the media came out, Beta vs VHS evolution, how VHS impacted the movie industry and particular genres, the rental store experience, current VHS re-sellers, and much more. Sprinkled in with great interviews from directors, collectors, fans, and industry experts to reveal much insight. A must see for film buffs or people wanting to relive the classic days of VHS.

Rating: Instant Classic
