Video Hoarders / 24 April 2020

Stream VIDEO HOARDERS Series 2 Episode 10 Now!

Once again the VIDEO HOARDERS trio head to Australia’s murder capital, Adelaide, this time to partake in a couple of work beers and visit the garage of Deniel Cross. Hidden away in the leafy suburbs of the city of churches lies one of the most magnificent VHS collections we’ve come across so far. Filled to bursting with some of the finest horrors, po-pocs (post-apocalyptic films), barbos (barbarian films), slims (sell-thru tapes) and salacious smut, Deniel has enough gold he could open a shop… and in fact, that’s what he did! Six months after we visited him, Deniel opened up Star Blaze Collectables in Hindley St, right across from the GU Film House Cinema in Adelaide.

Tapes on show in the garage (and in the store) include THE DEADLY SPAWN (Prestige Video), REVENGE OF THE NERDS (CBS-Fox Video), 1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS (RCA Columbia Pictures Hoyts) and CINDERELLA 2000 (Super Video). Also on display is Deniel’s magnificent retro video game collection which includes relics from Nintendo, Sega, NeoGeo, Amiga, and Atari.

This episode is truly a nostalgia buff’s dream!

VIDEO HOARDERS is an web-series that follows series creator & host Rob Taylor as he journeys around Australia with his crew Jarret & Ben tracking down likeminded video tape collectors affectionately dubbed ‘tape-heads’ to check out their collections and “search the wild for that next rare find”.
