    Vestron easily gets my vote. The big box delights of Wizard would be a close second.

    Wow, that list brings back some memories! My hat goes off to Thriller Video for introducing me to such classics as Cannibal Ferox and Beyond the Darkness.:evil:

    I can't vote because most of those companies never made it our shores, but I couldn't help but dig out the music from one of my favourite Australian labels, Video Classics, who actually put out Media titles here (this is from my old copy of I Drink Your Blood):

    It's like a royalty-free version of Goblin!! God, I miss those days!

    I went with the one I own the most of - Media. Little over 40 by my count.

    I chose Wizard, since they always put out those "so bad they're good titles" and had those huge-ass boxes with great cover art. :D

    But honorable mentions to all of the other companies, man those were the days. They really made me appreciate VHS, although I can't stand them now because of DVD. ;)

    I voted Republic, because they released Night of the Demons.

    Same here...I remember renting a couple VHS titles years ago with the Media label on them so that's what I'll go with. ;)
