Por si no lo sabías existe una compañía en Japón (cómo no) que todavía, en pleno año 2016, siglo XXI, fabrica videocaseteras como las que ves en la imagen sobre estas líneas. Pero ya no lo hará más, dado que han anunciado que finalmente después de más de 30 años dejarán de fabricarlas. Es el fin de una era que no…
Believe it or not, people still buy VHS tapes. The aging format has been in decline for years, but between the collectors and the luddites, there’s a big enough market for Amazon to maintain a massive library of tapes for sale. You’d never guess what tops the “New and Popular” list.
Remember when you missed the season finale of Breaking Bad and you had to wait like a year until the series finally came out on VHS so you could watch it?
Attention, fellow sickos! Here's an excellent reason to break out that VCR you still have lurking by the TV: Cult Movie Mania and Grindhouse Releasing are joining forces to release VHS versions of Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox, and other gory classics.
Remember the good old days of trolling the video rental horror section and just starring agape at the wondrous collection of VHS horror cover art? Well, this Halloween we're ready to celebrate all things horror by taking you back to the days of grotesque VHS cover art in our massive gallery. Enjoy.
Horror anthology series V/H/S is back with another addition, titled V/H/S: Viral, and the new red band trailer does NOT disappoint. Mainly because one of the monsters appears to be folks with deadly genitals.
Have you stared into the soul of internet today? No? Well, here's your chance. The folks over at Everything is Terrible have taken 50 VHS production company intros—those little animations that played on tapes back when you still used them—and layered them into a single deeply disturbing video.
The thought that today's kids will certainly have no concept of what VHS cassettes were is a little sad for those of us who grew up taping TV, rewinding movies, and messing with that mysterious tracking dial. But VHS cassette tapes will be far from forgotten as long as a few skateboarders embrace these retro-styled…
Internet es maravilloso. El año pasado Hunter Sanders hizo esta versión noventera de la intro de Juego de Tronos utilizando el I want it All de Queen como banda sonora. Hace unos días Steve Buzz subió una versión del tema principal de la serie estilo ochentero. Y hoy Mikolaj Birek ha juntado las dos cosas. El…
You have to love the internet. A year ago, Hunter Sanders made this 1990s remake of the Game of Thrones' intro, using Queen's I Want It All for the soundtrack. Then, three days ago, Steve Buzz uploaded an 80's inspired cover of the Game of Thrones main theme. And today, Mikolaj Birek mixed them both. It's so much…
Remember a few years ago when Blu-ray battled HD-DVD in the high-def DVD format war? Sony and Blu-ray ultimately won out, but there was a time when the electronics giant wasn't as successful in getting its way.
Do you have a VCR? Then it's time to dust it off, because if you still own one, then chances are you're a fan of the format, as well as the weird, goofy direct-to-VHS titles of the '80s. The new documentary Rewind This! is their ultimate tribute — plus, the movie actually comes out on videotape!
Do not adjust your computer screens. There's no problem with YouTube, other than the fact that it's getting a little misty eyed—by choosing to celebrate the 57th anniversary of the VCR with a little added analog character on its digital videos.
Italian artist Lorenzo Durantini made this 5-foot tall tower from his collection of 2,216 VHS tapes. It looks like a shrine to the TV demons. Or, if you believe that TV makes you stupid, a monolith that turns people to monkeys on touch. Unless these are all 2001 tapes.
It seems that the horror anthology V/H/S has claimed a second fainting victim. During a screening last night at the Nuart Theater in Los Angeles, one audience member fainted during a grisly scene, the same one that caused a viewer to faint at Sundance.
V/H/S knows that horror and film have a very special relationship. We sit in the dark and subject ourselves to the chills on the other side of the screen, daring ourselves to imagine those onscreen horrors creeping up behind us. The new found footage anthology film, which has been available on-demand, opens its…
Ti West scared our pants off with House of the Devil and Innkeepers. Now he's one of the cutting-edge directors behind the new horror anthology film V/H/S, directing the terrifying segment "Second Honeymoon." He'll be here at noon to answer all of your questions about V/H/S and about horror cinema in general.
I have a gigantic case full of CDs that I have no idea what to do with. Do I toss them out? Do I save them for my kids? I'm sure other people have the same questions with their dead physical media—CDs, video tapes, DVDs, soon to be Blu-Rays—what's going to happen to all of that? Why not turn it into a giant skull…
We're dying to see the horror anthology flick VHS, a collection of five vignettes from such indie moviemakers as Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), David Bruckner (The Signal), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way to Die), and Simon Barrett (You're Next).
