Yes, those who went to Cassette Store Day and enjoy fetishizing dead formats will be able to experience Sleepaway Camp and Class of 1984 in their full-screen, pan-and-scan home video glory. “Forget about high definition,” Shout! Factory proclaims. “Relive the style that gives these films the character that cult fans all over yearn for.” In other words, enjoy fuzzy picture quality, occasional hiccups on the tape, and maybe even some tracking issues if you’re lucky. Jolt Cola and Little Caesars pizza to complete the 1987 sleepover experience are not included. – Mike Vanderbilt, The A.V. Club
