Synopsis

SHOCK VALUES documents the final days of one of Toronto’s last video stores: the horror-focused Suspect Video and Culture. It explores a variety of issues with owner Luis Ceriz, including censorship; the utility of the horror genre; the importance of tangible artistic objects; and what exactly we lose when independent, brick-and-mortar stores fade away.
