Inspired by the HORROR VHS COLLECTORS UNITE Facebook group and collectors around the world, VHS ATE MY BRAIN is the chronicle of a life spent in front of too many bad movies on that much cherished and equally maligned dead format, along with a look a number of the films which shaped the era of cult video entertainment.
It's been a blast to write, and is a very personal book which devolves into my obsession with bad films and dusty old video tapes. It's my way of giving something back to a scene which has brought me so much pleasure in recent years.
The initial run of VHS ATE MY BRAIN is available as a limited edition signed and numbered 6x9 paperback, limited to just 100 copies. There are currently two ways you can get hold of them, with a third to follow very soon!
