“Found Footage”, as a concept and genre, has been around for long enough to break its initial mold into something new and exciting.
That seems to be the case with the upcoming feature VHYES from director Jack Henry Robbins (and written by Nunzio Randozzo and Robbins) where a kid tapes late night TV and home videos over his folks’ wedding tape. The result is a déjà vu-laden run through bizarre late night TV from the age of cassette tapes weaved in with the journey of making home movies, perhaps for the first time.
The likes of Kerri Kenney, Thomas Lennon, John Gemberling, Tim Robbins, Mark Proksch all pop up throughout VHYES as you can see in this first trailer.
So far, VHYES looks like an offbeat, absurdist delight. We can’t wait to see what exactly is going on in VHYES when it comes out in limited release on Jan. 17th, 2020.
