Video Violence: The History of Horror on Home Video

Join the Black Museum at 2014 FanExpo Canada for this special free lecture presentation!

The advent of home video completely altered the horror movie landscape forever. A cavalcade of celluloid nightmares slashed their way into mom n’ pop video shops across the globe, their lurid cover art exploding off the box. Join Josh Johnson, director of the VHS documentary Rewind This!, as he guides you on a brain-melting visual tour through the dark side of home video’s past.
