VHS Lives 2: Undead Format (2017) (DVD REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Tony Newton
STARRING: Christopher Bouchie, Dan Brownlie, Richard Chandler

Step inside this time machine as we go back to the awesome era of VHS with in-depth discussions on the glory days of VHS, Video shops, renting videocassettes and VHS nostalgia. VHS is still relevant today and loved by so many people across the globe, VHS will never Die – Once called the “Dead Format” VHS has truly risen from the grave defining the odds and is taking no prisoners, find out why VHS still lives from VHS collectors themselves. VHS Lives part 2: Undead Format is a trip down memory lane with a look back at VCR players and VHS tapes. Sit back as we rewind back through cult VHS tapes, video players and video shop nostalgia. Sit back and immerse yourself in everything VHS, from collectors talking about their VHS memories, favorite VHS tapes, and distributors – to the highs and lows of the VHS era.

If you wanted to, you could probably take everything I said in my review about VHS Lives: A Schlockumentary then copy and paste it for the sequel, VHS Lives 2: Undead Format. It really feels like when you watch this that a lot of it might have been recorded for the first film and then used for this since the original film had such a long running time anyway. So while it is in some ways more of the same, you do also get new stuff here and even a bit of an update from the last one as one of the guys from the first film had gone as far as to open a new “mom and pop” style video store since the last movie came out. Stuff like that makes this one interesting enough, but you might not want to go back to back watching these like I did unless you just REALLY want to watch something that feels like a super long movie when watched together. But the fact still remains, if you liked what the first movie had to offer up, then you should get something here.

You can tell a movie like this is made by someone who loves VHS and all the history that comes with it. You can also tell that the people in it are just as passionate about it all as well. That helps a lot when you watch something like this because you can respect the people involved and if you also dig the subject matter as much as they do you will be right at home for the most part. So, yeah, just like before this won’t be for everyone and you probably don’t want to watch it with the original on the same day just to avoid overkilling the whole issue, but if you want something to kick back and watch when you feel nostalgic, you could do a whole heck of a lot worse than VHS Lives 2: Undead Format.
