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!”

The Dare (2019, Bulgaria / USA / UK) Lionsgate UK DVD Review

The Dare (2019, Bulgaria / USA / UK) Lionsgate UK DVD Review

Directed and co-written by Giles Alderson, The Dare could easily be dismissed as a copycat of the movies that led to the mid-2000s resurgence of the splatter subgenre; unfortunately labelled “torture porn” by film critics and horror detractors. James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s Saw (2004), and Eli Roth’s Hostel (2005) are both seen as the pinnacle of the subgenre; the first to be labelled “torture porn” due to their emphasis on extreme violence and sadism, and never surpassed by the countless thrillers that followed. But despite a certain familiarity, The Dare breathes new life into the art of splatter.

“Let the evil out.”
