Tunnelvision (1976) - 1978 MEDA Home Entertainment VHS

This early VHS is in amazing condition for thirty-three years old. Even the cassette looks hardly viewed with perfect labels. Full Moon Pictures honcho Charles Band created MEDA in 1978 in the beginning of the VHS format's eventual domination and later as MEDIA became an extremely prolific distributor until the early '90s bust.

Among MEDA's most desired output are the first home videos of Halloween (1978) and Night of the Living Dead (1968). Haven't tracked those two down, but I have Nocturna: Granddaughter of Dracula (1979), Horror Express (1972), Slaves of Love (1969), and The House That Vanished (1974) on MEDIA's first incarnation.

I love how there is nary a peep about the content of the film. Just the half-sized poster art (and let's face it... this isn't a film with a self-explanatory poster) flanked by an enormous amount of MEDA promotional/propaganda material. At this early stage, even the art of the VHS box cover hadn't been mastered! :-) you dare tread upon the staircase?
