VHS tapes are a lot like booty calls. You hastily throw them out when you feel that they’re past their prime, but you can’t help but miss them on a lonely Saturday night. Luckily, the good folks over at 92Y Tribeca won’t ever let you forget about the one-night stand you had with the Mighty Joe Young VHS back in ’99, or the torrid love affair you shared with your Bonanza box set. Understanding the unrequited cinematic flirtation, the 92Y hosts a panel of raunchy-film pundits for another installment of the VHS Trailer Show, a presentation of the experts’s favorite film trailers featuring plenty of Vidmark classics and schmaltzy erotic thrillers. Audience members are encouraged to BYOVHS, so make sure to cue up your favorite Indecent Behavior III or Leprechaun trailer.
