Yesterday I was made aware of this awesome documentary that focuses on the impact of the VHS tape back in the 80s. This nostalgic look back sheds light on everything from the way our watching of films was changed to the types of movies that were created and how they were marketed. Also discussed is the legacy that has been left behind by the VHS tape including the films that have yet to be transferred to DVD or preserved for future generations and VHS is the only format available.
The film features interviews with the likes of industry veterans Lloyd Kaufman, Cassandra Peterson, Charles Band, Kevin Tenney, Frank Hennenlotter, and Drew McWeeney to name a few.

The film premiered at the South By Southwest film festival last March and is currently traveling to film festivals around the world. So make sure to follow the link to the official REWIND THIS! site to check out if it might be screening in a theater near you!
A big thanks as always to IMP Awards for the poster you see up top.
