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...
The flow of fresh VHS continues to roll, Videovores, and today’s featured slab was brought to our analog attention by our resident rewind-inclined animation aficionado Taylor Duff: a name you’re sure to recognize if you’re familiar with Lunchmeat Magazine’s Animation from the Abyss!
