Described as equal parts comedy and drama, VHYES hit theaters nationwide January 17th. Listen as Paul Salfen talks to Producer Tim Robbins, Director Jack Henry Robbins, And Actress Kerry Kenney just after the screening of VHYES at Fantastic Fest 2019.
A bizarre retro comedy shot entirely on VHS, VHYes takes us back to a simpler time, when twelve-year-old Ralph mistakenly records home videos and his favorite late night shows over his parents’ wedding tape. The result is a nostalgic wave of home shopping clips, censored pornography, and nefarious true-crime tales that threaten to unkindly rewind Ralph’s reality.
A hypnotic narrative told through hundreds of criss-crossing vignettes and a mix of absurdist comedy, sincere drama, music, and just a touch of horror, this wholly original feature debut expertly walks the fine line between complete lunacy and total sincerity.
