Awesome, VHS just gave movies a realness to them. Like the movie lived in the cassette.Like a spirit in a box. Dvd's don't give that feeling..
Love it. So many memories with VHS. I will never get rid of my VCR or my tapes. You just can't beat watching pre-1990's horror that way.And happy to see my buddy at Lunchmeat Magazine :)
Ahh, the "Horror" section at the local video store... I can't wait for this one to come out!!Please Be Kind And Rewind.
Tracking!! Ugh!! I don't miss the actual technology, but I will admit there was something special about VHS. It's probably because it was the first tech of that kind, really. I mean, you could get film to play on a home theater projector but it was costly and troublesome, etc. VHS brought everything into the home, opening up doors to films we might not have otherwise seen. It's hard not to be nostalgic about all that: the video store rentals, the box art, even the finesse with which you had to wrangle a cantankerous cassette probably has its fond memories for some.
Damn. I still have a VCR too. Now I feel like getting it out just to experience it again.Ha! HORROR BOOBS! I wonder what they look like......Sorry.....just wondering.
