VHS Massacre: Cult Films and the Decline of Physical Media

VHS Massacre

United States, 2015
Documentary, Comedy
The Vulgar Disruptor: Troma Restored

Synopsis

This documentary explores the rise and fall of physical media and its effect on independent and cult films, as well as B-movies. Ranging from the origin of home movies through the video store era, and featuring icons like Joe Bob Briggs, Lloyd Kaufman, Greg Sestero, Debbie Rochon, and Deborah Reed.

Our take

We take a step back from Troma’s delightful genre productions for a documentary focused on the demise of physical media, which was an integral part of the vitality of the company, and, indeed, genre cinema. This is an incisive investigation into a monumental shift for both the industry and medium.
