VHS HISTORY LEASON : MEDIA HOME ENTERTAINMENT

One of the earliest video companies, Media Home Entertainment was formed in 1978 and released nearly 1,000 films before it ceased operations in 1992. Media began by releasing public domain titles (back then, public domain titles such as PSYCHOMANIA and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD weren't readily available on the market as they are today, so they were new to the renters) and graduated to the big time, thanks to some popular CHARLIE BROWN titles and live concert performances. During the mid-to-late 80's, Media was king of the independent distributors, as they released popular theatrical product (the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise and much of New Line's 80's catalogue; Chuck Norris films such as A FORCE OF ONE, THE OCTAGON and many others; Charles Bronson flicks (MURPHY'S LAW, MESSENGER OF DEATH) and a lot of independent releases like TROMA'S WAR, MOTHER'S DAY and, strangely enough, a lot of Trans World Entertainment's theatrical releases) and also released a lot of low-budget horror and action films that nearly all renters of the 80's gobbled-up. Media released such titles as DON'T GO IN THE HOUSE, TOURIST TRAP, DEMONOID, LASERBLAST, C.H.U.D.,  BASKET CASE and many, many others. Media titles were as commonplace as major label's product in many households as they also distributed animated films, self-help videos, sports-themed videos and many films never released to theaters, such as TERROR ON TOUR, a slew of Italian post-nuke films (ESCAPE FROM THE BRONX, ENDGAME, 2020 TEXAS GLADIATORS) and action films like THE EXPENDABLES, NAM ANGELS and SAIGON COMMANDOS. Media had their hands in every type of genre, thereby cementing it's dependability as a company that could meet anyone's spur-of-the-moment urges. There are many unconfirmed stories about Media's reputation and they need to be told. Unfortunately, until a reliable source appears, these stories will go untold as much of Media's catalogue is still around and still being distributed by companies like Anchor Bay, Fox and New Line on DVD (I don't want lawsuits, but there are rumblings of murder and underworld connections.). Media also released hard-R sex films under the "Private Screenings" sublabel and older films and episodes of TV series (ABBOTT & COSTELLO) under the "Nostalgia Merchant" label. A lot of Media's early releases command big bucks today in the auction market. I own a few from the late 70's and they play perfectly. Just a side note here, but don't the early tapes weigh much heavier than tapes produced in the last 10 years? You could drop an older tape and nothing would happen. Drop a new tape and be prepared to bring out the vacuum as it will shatter into hundreds of small pieces. The older tapes were made to last, and 25 years later they play as well as the first time. { text from  critcononline.com }

VHS HISTORY LEASON : WIZARD VIDEO

This is the label that I love the most mainly because of their lurid cover artwork and their big boxes that stuck out on the video shelves from all the other VHS product. Wizard Video is one of the oldest labels to carry genre product. Wizard didn't start out issuing their films in big boxes. A lot of their earlier releases such as EQUINOX (later released by Wizard in a big box as THE BEAST), THE DEVIL'S WEDDING NIGHT and AUDITIONS were released in standard-sized cases and were rather bland. Once they changed to the big box format, renters stood up and took notice. The colorful artwork and inventive advertising made these oversized releases desirable to the collector. Wizard released a lot of European horror films that were, at the time, unknown by many people. Titles, such as Jess Franco's THE INVISIBLE DEAD, THE SCREAMING DEAD and DEMONIAC, the Paul Naschy-starrers CRIMSON and RETURN OF THE ZOMBIES, the Nazi-themed FRAULEIN DEVIL and HELL TRAIN, the Exorcist rip-off THE POSSESSOR and many others lined the video shelves for hungry renters to eat up. I wonder how many people became Jess Franco and Paul Naschy fans because of these releases? Wizard's biggest claim-to-fame were their direct-to-video releases like David DeCoteau's DREAMANIAC, Tim Kincaid's BREEDERS, MUTANT HUNT  and ROBOT HOLOCAUST (which all proudly displayed "Too Gory For The Silver Screen" on the front of the box) and their in-house compilations FILMGORE, BEST OF SEX AND VIOLENCE and ZOMBIETHON (which were all basically short clips of their entire VHS catalogue), original product that made them stand out from the rest of the horror pack. My favorite Wizard big box cover has to be their release of THE HEADLESS EYES. The sight of an eyeball (with the optic nerves still attached) lying on the pavement next to a dead woman always makes me smile. Wizard Video's advertising campaign was so successful that the majority of horror film renters from the 80's probably remember them better than any other video company. Their brand was so memorable that Charles Band (who owned Wizard Video) is now again using the logo for a cult subdivivion of Full Moon and is releasing some of his older films, including INTRUDER (1989), under the Wizard banner on DVD. It's companies like Wizard that made renting such a fun game. Wizard also distributed films under the "Force Video" banner. { text from  critcononline.com }
