Open City Cinema is launching a new series dubbed 'Open City Lite' by our very own Ryan Simmons.  Open City Lite will screen classics that are unintentionally watchable. 
We asked ourselves, since we're screening these craptastic works of art, why not insist that they be screened on an antiquated format as well? 
We answered, why the hell not, VHS should do it. 

So without further adieu, we bring you Clifford
From Roger Ebert: 
…"Clifford" is not bad on the acting, directing or even writing levels. It fails on a deeper level still, the level of the underlying conception. Something about the material itself is profoundly not funny. Irredeemably not funny, so that it doesn't matter what the actors do, because they are in a movie that should never have been made... The movie is so odd, it's almost worth seeing just because we'll never see anything like it again. I hope.
