Greetings from “Tromaville”!
Yesterday, NewFilmmmakers and AltFest Series premiered the new feature VHS Massacre Too (trailer embedded at the top of the article).
In a post video store era, media consolidation has led to the censorship and near-death of the independent and exploitation film industry. Joe Bob Briggs (Last Drive-in), Debbie Rochon (Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger Part IV), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger) and James Rolfe (Angry Video Game Nerd) take us on an adventure that leads from the last Blockbuster video store in Bend Oregon to Troma Entertainment in New York, all in an effort to examine how history keeps repeating itself from the video store era to the modern streaming. This film is a followup to the 5-time award-winning VHS Massacre documentary, winner of three Telly Awards, a Gold Remi from World-fest Houston and Best Documentary at Miami Sci-Fi!
