Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide - Trailer

A trailer has just been released for the Video Nasties box set from Jake West's Nucleus Films.  If you didn't catch our review from last week then check it out here but before you go why not click below and watch the trailer.

Jake West, director of the documentary VIDEO NASTIES: MORAL PANIC,
CENSORSHIP & VIDEOTAPE and co-owner of Nucleus Films, says:
"The Video Nasties era was the most shameful time in British film history that lead to the Video  Recordings Act being enforced under false information. People went to prison and lost their livelihoods because of what happened and that, unfortunately, still has a bearing on what is going on today. Hopefully, what Marc (Morris) and I have served up is a pleasurable but timely reminder that we need to be aware of the kind of rhetoric being used around issues of censorship".

Whilst it is a timely reminder of how easily our basic liberties can be stripped from us under the guise of morality this set is also an absolutely wonderful celebration of all things horror and as far as I am concerned is required viewing for any self-respecting genre enthusiast.
