VHS HISTORY LEASON : GOODTIMES HOME VIDEO

Here is a budget company that at least attempted to do it right. Foregoing the normal EP mode of most budget labels, Goodtimes (founded in 1984 and still going strong today) opted to release their tapes in the LP mode, far superior to EP, but not quite as good as SP. Started by the colorful Cayre brothers, Syrian immigrants whose father was a souvenir salesman in Miami Beach, they decided to go into the budget VHS business after selling their profitable music label, SalSoul Records. Starting with 25 public domain titles and a contract with WalMart, the Cayne brothers sold 3 million dollars worth of tapes in the first year and turned Goodtimes into a major budget label, selling films of all genres, Richard Simmon's Sweating To The Oldies exercise tapes, animated videos to compete with Walt Disney (who sued Goodtimes for trademark infringement and lost!) and now they release mainly Christian-themed DVDs. Some of the early VHS covers look as if they were drawn by a 12 year-old with palsy. { text from critcononline.com }


VHS HISTORY LEASON : PARAGON VIDEO PRODUCTIONS

Of all the pre-records I own (well over 3,000 as of this writing), the majority of 80's horror in my collection comes from Paragon Video. Their sleeves were the meaning of simplicity: Usually a copy of the original release theatrical poster on the front with a big copy of their logo on the bottom right and a few photos of the film and a short plot synopsis (usually taken from the film's pressbook) on the back. While they didn't release the best-looking prints of the movies, they were usually the uncut versions (keep your Paragon version of JUST BEFORE DAWN as the Shriek Show DVD version of the film is missing bits of gore found on Paragon's tape). What really made Paragon stand out was their collection of trailers that they showed before the film. There were usually about 12 minutes of trailers for horror, exploitation and action films that were probably more enjoyable than the film on the tape. While I don't pretend to know squat about Paragon's history, I do know that they were located in Las Vegas, Nevada, were originally known as "King Of Video" and released product from late 1981 until 1985, making them one of the earliest companies in the home video rental market for genre films. I made it a quest of mine to own as many Paragon VHS tapes as I can get my hands on. Thanks to eBay, I have been able to purchase a lot of them for less than two bucks. They play just as good now as they did when they were new and some of them are nearly 25 years old! { text from critcononline.com }

VHS HISTORY LEASON : STAR CLASSICS

One of the most prevalent EP-mode budget labels and one of the worst in terms of quality which made it all the worse for the buyer because they had some pretty rare titles on their roster. Trans World Entertainment licensed many of their films for Star Classics to release in budget versions, including WHITE FIRE, EVIL TOWN, DEVIL'S DYNAMITE and many others. Star Classics also released many 70's & 80's horror films, including DREAM NO EVIL, THE PEOPLE WHO OWN THE DARK, ALIEN DEAD, THE NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDS, NIGHT OF HORROR, REVENGE OF THE ZOMBIE, BOARDING HOUSE, CRAZE, MOVIE HOUSE MASSACRE and many more. The only problen was that you played Russian roulette with every purchase. Nine times out of ten, the VHS cassette was defective. Either it wouldn't track correctly or the print was so washed-out that it would be unwatchable. Still, some of their covers were pretty decent and are considered collectable today for that fact alone. It still amazes me that people would spend upwards of $50 for a copy of Star Classics' version of the TV movies ANTS or GARGOYLES on eBay, though. Star Classics went out of business in 1991. { text from  critcononline.com }


VHS HISTORY LEASON : LIGHTNING VIDEO

This bastard stepchild of Vestron Video released a lot of genre product during the video heyday of 1985 - 1990. Releasing mainly unknown films such as DARK AUGUST, NIGHTMARE WEEKEND, A BLADE IN THE DARK, MASSACRE IN DINOSAUR VALLEY and many others (their most well-known title is STREET TRASH), Lightning Video exposed a lot of renters to the pleasures (and pitfalls) of 80's horror cinema. Titles like NEON MANIACS, FROZEN TERROR, NECROPOLIS, CHOPPING MALL and NAKED VENGEANCE made their debuts on the Lightning label. They also released films from the 70's such as THE CLONES, WHEN THE SCREAMING STOPS, PANTHER SQUAD, TERROR IN THE WAX MUSEUM and THE CLONUS HORROR. I remember many nights putting a cassette into my VCR and seeing the Lightning logo come on my TV screen. A red background with two thunderbolts would appear and someone with a Hi-Fi VCR could hear the stereo separation as the right thunderbolt would come blaring out of the right speaker and the left one out of the left speaker as the Lightning logo would appear in blue. While the films may have left a lot to be desired (GIRL SCHOOL SCREAMERS anyone?), you could at least look forward to some previews to appear after the film was finished. While Lightning Video was not a major driving force in the video pantheon, they did supply a lot of horror-hungry fans with some lesser-known titles. For that we can be thankful. { text from  critcononline.com }
