NEW RELEASE - Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector (Special Edition) Available June 17th


The attention that VHS tapes have been getting lately just warms my heart. Except for the inflated pricing of some "rare" tapes, I've been reveling in this great big piece of nostalgia. The project to build a mock video store (or maybe even a functioning one) in my basement continues but slowly. In the meantime both Adjust Your Tracking and Rewind This! have made their way into the market place, and educated a new age of Mylar fans.
 
We'll have the full review of this one up soon, but I've commented on Adjust Your Tracking often. I have enjoyed the documentary and feel that both Rewind This and AYT have different scopes. This is also the chance to check out the tick-gorge-full of extras on the disc. Rewind This was one of my favorite releases of 2013. Let's hope that this barrage of goodies makes Adjust Your Tracking my 2014 fave.

Full release below:

Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector
Special Edition 2 Disc DVD Set Available June 17th

Los Angeles, CA - VHSh*tfest, in conjunction with Horror Boobs and Lunchmeat, are excited to announce the June 17th Special Edition DVD release of Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector. The acclaimed documentary from co-directors Dan Kinem and Levi Peretic dispels the myth that the original home video format is dead and buried and has received audience and critical praise around the world since its premiere at Days of the Dead in Los Angeles.

Fangoria hailed the film as a "fascinating look into a burgeoning underground scene of cinephiles" while Pittsburgh City Paper called it "loads of fun for fans of VHS, not-quite-dead formats and films about hard-core collectors."
Some see VHS as worthless plastic, but Adjust Your Tracking shows a vibrant world of collectors and movie fans who are keeping the format, and the movies, alive. Over 100 collectors, filmmakers, producers, and video store owners express how VHS changed their lives. Travel back to the days of video rental stores with those who still buy, sell, rent and trade the format that will not die - VHS.
