Released and Abandoned: Forgotten Oddities of the Home Video Era presents:


In the glory days of the VHS era, distributors were desperate for product, and just about anything could be slapped into an eye-catching box and placed on videos store shelves across the nation — including short films disguised as movies! Enjoy the small but fascinating world of “Frankenthologies,” films that were compiled by slapping a bunch of genre-themed shorts together into a package, calling it anthology, and getting it distributed! Watch some of the most interesting shorts from this trend, featuring work from filmmakers who went on to bigger and better things!
