 Pretty decent documentary that covers the history of the video entertainment world. It also deals with the nerdy collectors who are obsessed with VHS boxes and their distorted sense of nostalgia. Some of the more famous talking heads in this include Elvira(in her civilian disguise of Cassandra Peterson), Lloyd Kaufman, Charles Band and Frank Henenlotter. There's also a bunch of people in this that are only interviewed because they have hoarded a bunch of old VHS tapes. I'm not sure how being a delusional pack-rat makes a person qualified to speak on anything but OK. Maybe if this was more of a psychological look into 80's obsession it would make more sense but it never really gets that deep. There's a few other VHS-related docs that have come out recently including ADJUST YOUR TRACKING and VHS MASSACRE which I have not seen and I'm not really sure if the world needs that many interviews with 80's kids patting themselves on the back for paying hundreds of dollars for something you could watch online for free but if you dig old dusty video tapes check them out.
