This coming Memorial Day weekend, on Saturday May 27th starting at 12noon in Stroudsburg, PA at the Sherman Theater, it’s the 8th annual SEVERED Short Film Festival and 6th annual Horror VHS Collectors Unite! Convention! For 6 years running, SEVERED has...
Contrary to common belief, the video store isn’t quite dead. And if you’re regularly tuned in to Lunchmeat Land, you’ll know this to be VHSolid fact. But if not, we welcome you to our VHS-obsessed domain with a few choice examples to support our notion: The classic chain of Family Video is still alive and finding ways to thrive out...
LA-based Lo-Fi Video established themselves in the fresh VHS world with their VHS re-animations of cult horror classics like Don’t Go in the Woods, Rocktober Blood and the absolutely radical big box edition of what is arguably the most ridiculous and lewdly entertaining “exercise” video of all time: Linnea Quigley’s Horror Workout. But in the...
If you’re a fan of Adult Swim regulars Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric Awesome Show) and Greg Turkington (AKA Neil Hamburger), then chances are you’re already familiar with their web series, On Cinema, and its action adventure parody spin-off, Decker. You might have even come across the aborted third season, Decker Vs. Dracula, but what you might not...
If you’ve enjoyed rewind-inclined indie documentaries like Josh Johnson’s Rewind This! and the Lunchmeat co-produced Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector, and you’re looking for even more insight on the scope of Tapehead and Videovore culture from around the world, Tony Newton’s 2017 documentary VHS Lives:...

As the existence of real-live brick and mortar video stores continues to decline into an inevitable and unfortunate extinction, it accentuates the importance for historical documentation of the inimitably fun and interactive atmosphere of vintage video rental stores. We recently featured the following video from Growing Up 80s and 90s on some Lunchmeat...
The video vindicating crew over at Magnetic Magic Rentals have already demonstrated a tinge of allegiance to the infernal side of analog with their now-sold-out-release of the absolutely bonkers and banned public access curiosity The Great Satan at Large (which any fan of outrageous and blasphemous video rea obscurities should check out immediately)...
Endearingly odd avant-garde filmmaker Carl J. Sukenick has recently enjoyed a remarkable revival via the rewind way. Fresh VHS releases of Sukenick’s signature style of beyond-bizzare, no-budget cinema were initially offered up by video vindicating stalwarts Massacre Video with radical re-issues of ALIEN BEASTS and MUTANT MASSACRE 2, which have...
