The more in-the-know VHS aficionados are likely to be familiar with the name Mike Malloy. Apart from his outstanding work on the documentary Eurocrime: The Italian Cop and Gangster Films That Ruled the 70s, and his participation in flicks like Samurai Cop 2 and Django Lives, he’s also been making appearances here in Lunchmeat Land since 2013 when he first started the journey to create Plastic Movies Rewound: an episodic documentary that details the sometimes seedy, sometimes incredible, but always entertaining hidden world of the home video industry. Now over the years we’ve seen a flood of VHS-driven documentaries that...

It’s a bit of a brain bender to think that the initial VHS-centric documentaries Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector and Josh Johnson’s Rewind This! were released nearly five years ago in 2013. The time has been flying for Tapehead culture, and the expansion and recognition of our rewind ways is ever-growing. That amplification of VHS reverence has been bolstered by a flurry of other VHS-driven docs such as the UK-produced docs VHS Forever? Psychotronic People and VHS Lives: A Schlockumentary as well as the US-produced VHS Massacre, which saw release via the indie film stalwarts...

UK-based VHS collecting offers a decidedly different historical scope both past and present, e.g. the Video Nasty controversy and recent VHS value misrepresentation, and if you’re looking for an insightful, lovingly-built window into VHS culture across the pond, Darren J. Perry and Mark Williams’ VHS FOREVER? PSYCHOTRONIC PEOPLE documentary offers just that. We originally interviewed both filmmakers here in Lunchmeat Land just about a year ago, so if you’re unaware of their rewind-inclined work, you can bone up right here.
