Welcome to Videonomicon, the video releasing company from the future’s past! Specializing in rare, obscure, and forgotten films, Videonomicon is the only label and distributor in Central Canada seeking out our country, and occasionally the world’s, lost or unreleased cult gems and bringing them back to the public.
But Videonomicon is also much more. An archive of reviews to expose a lost world of audio-visual delights and/or travesties, a place where interviews open up a world behind the crinkled tape your VCR just ejected prematurely, and a source to find and obtain gems missing from your collection as well as to usher in new and long forgotten relics to be cherished once again or for the first time.
Jon Vaughn and Tyler Baptist both grew up during the new born boom of home video, a rebellious time that marked the expansion of cinema to not just the hills of Hollywood but to the backyards and alleyways in every neighbourhood around the globe. This is Videonomicon, a curated cacophony of VHS culture. Come for the home video, but take a video home.
