Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
VHS Massacre is a fascinating look at the decline of physical media through the eyes of independent cinema and filmmakers. With some great interviews (Lloyd Kaufman is money as always) the film pitches a hopeful future where collectors and enthusiasts keep physical media alive – be it VHS or more recent variants. If you grew up with VHS, with Troma or ever watched a no budget film then this is essential viewing.
