Video Eyeball Magazine – Vol. 2 No. 3 – Oct/Nov 1995 Issue
Video Eyeball Vol. 2 No. 3
This ultra-rare magazine about obscure and cult films on VHS tape you see before you is called Video Eyeball: the Video Suggestion Rag with the Optic Nerve. Originally published as a free newsprint paper bimonthly by Dave Yount in Boston, it eventually expanded into national distribution with a very slick and polished look. This publication is for the true cineaaste and movie nerd, reviewing the best overlooked movies, TV and more on VHS tape, related CDs, books and zines as well as cataloging video sources. Impossible to find back issues anywhere, these magazines are true time capsule treasures of the early VHS tape, Beta, and Laserdisc format rental and collecting era.
