VHS Forever? Psychotronic People (2014, UK) VIPCO DVD Review

VHS Forever? Psychotronic People (2014, UK) VIPCO Blu-ray Review

Unless one is of a certain age it might be difficult to relate to VIPCO’s feature-length release of the documentary VHS Forever? Psychotronic People. It harkens back to the dawn of serious movie watching, especially those of a subversive and transgressive nature. The documentary manages to capture the thrill of so many cinephiles to be able to access obscure, forbidden and strange films, but at the same time, shows the paranoia and very real legal concerns operators of video stores faced during the era.

“We think censorship is idiotic!”
