Contest: Win GOING IN on Limited Edition VHS!

Attention physical media fans: We’re giving away a fantastic, one-of-a-kind collectible for a lucky reader – one that will be particularly appealing if you’re a fan of ’80s buddy action movies and/or great films set in Toronto: a limited edition VHS copy of GOING IN to celebrate its screening on April 2 at the Revue Cinema.

Going In VHS
Written, directed, and co-starring Evan Rissi, GOING IN was produced to feel like a lost movie from the late 1980s, a hidden gem unearthed in someone’s basement that’s finally able to be shared with audiences decades later.

Set in Toronto in 1989, the film follows former best friends Leslie (Rissi) and Reuben (Ira Goldman) who begrudgingly reunite to fight a dangerous new drug that starts taking over the streets. It’s a precision-engineered throwback to a bygone era of buddy movies – and one with a uniquely Toronto spin on the tried and true genre.

Stay tuned for our full review, but in the meantime watch the GOING IN trailer below:
