Verdict on Cult of VHS
Cult of VHS is a documentary that breaks down the ever-increasing popularity of VHS movies. This looks back at the first growing market and how people including myself would head down to the video store to see the latest movies.
It highlights how movies we judged more on the posters. Instead of relying on trailers that give away too much nowadays. We see the collectors from around the world who have different motivations to collect and how certain movies defined who they are now.
This is an interesting documentary and one that will give you a chance to relive the memories of a younger life. It does offer up the discussion about what is better in viewing movies, proving that physical collections are always going to have a place in the world.
Final Thoughts – Cult of VHS is an entertaining and interesting documentary.
