New documentary, “Adjust Your Tracking,” explores the legacy of movies on VHS – and those who collect them
The full title of this new documentary is Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector. Apparently, the all-but-obsolete video format still has its fans, particularly those seeking obscure horror and other genre films that never made their way onto Netflix, DVD, or Blu-ray.
Here’s its trailer:
For a complete list of theatrical screenings of Adjust Your Tracking, go to the official website. I’m guessing I’m not the only one who discarded stacks of VHS tapes years ago. This film kind of makes me wish I had hung onto them. It’s easy to forget just how ubiquitous VCRs were, not that long ago. I think I still have several in my attic – including a Betamax. (For those too young to know what that is, Google is your friend.)
If you’d like to learn more, Collector’s Weekly has a nice article on the documentary. You can read it here.
