VHS NASTY DOCUMENTARY AND BOOK DELVES DEEP INTO THE VIDEO NASTY HYSTERIA!

Tony Newton has been very productive as of late with not only the release of the film VIRUS OF THE DEAD, but also two new books, VHS NASTY: The Essential Guide Book to Video Nasties and Horror Movie Poetry (further details on both books below).

Not only that but the upcoming release of VHS NASTY, part 3 in the infamous cult VHS doc series VHS Lives.

In the early 1980’s, VCR players were in every house, but a legendary cult following developed during the VHS era like no other, those that loved The Video Nasty! Yes kids, with video stores on every corner during the VHS boom, they were flooded with an array of exploitation and horror the likes of which we will never see again. The art on the VHS sleeves was awesome and these unregulated horror, gore and sexploitation films rocked before they were banned in the UK and the hysteria started to spread across the globe!

VHS NASTY delves deep into the cult classic satanic panic that is the video nasties, taking an indepth look at censorship within horror films specifically the video nasty scandal that shook not only Britain in the early 80’s, but shook the world into a frenzy of panic! Talking about cult video nasties such as FACES OF DEATH, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, DRILLER KILLER and many more.

 

VHS NASTY is on VOD now, and arrives on DVD in the U.K. 23rd September 2019 ( U.S.A 17th September 2019) and be ordered via the links below:
