Videoscope Magazine bills itself as “the Ultimate Genre DVD Guide”. According to it’s website, it “began life as a newsletter but soon morphed into a nationally distributed magazine, a one-stop source for the latest in genre home entertainment coverage.” Each issue contains news and reviews of the latest DVD releases from genres such as Horror, Sci-Fi, Action, Asian, Cult, Camp, Classic, Animation, Thrillers, Indies, Film Noirs, Art-House, Verite, Vintage, Tele-Video, Exploitation, etc. It also contains numerous articles and interviews written by experts of each genre and about the star creators of the movies.
The latest issue of Videoscope contains a well written article by David Vaughan entitled “MAD at the Movies”, all about MAD‘s long history of doing movie satires. I was interviewed extensively for the article, but despite that it’s still an interesting and informative read. Fortunately they also procured quotes and insights from the likes of Dick DeBartolo, Arnie Kogen and Desmond Devlin so the level of intelligence in the article is plenty high.
There is no on-line version of the article, so if you are interested you’ll have to pick up a copy of Videoscope Magazine. I’m not sure how you can get single issues, but if you contact them I am sure they will oblige.
