VHS stands for Video Home System. From 1981 to 1997, VHS was the standard for commercial media being released to the public. DVD became the standard in 1998.

In 2015, VHS videocassettes of films were relegated to being sold at antique shops such as Blast from the Past.

Behind the scenes

  • The "To Be Continued" screen caption was only added to the home release of Back to the Future. It was not originally included in the theatrical release, as a sequel was not originally planned.
  • The "Coming Summer 1990" screen caption was removed from the home release of Back to the Future Part II. However, it was retained in the 2010 and 2015 home releases of the film trilogy.
