Weird and Wild Film Trailers

Filed under: Uncategorized
Tags: , ,

At least until the last decade or so, the most important job in the movie business was trailer cutting. Sell the sizzle, not the steak: the trailer was what persuaded people to pay for a ticket, and if the actual movie turned out to be a dog, well, there are no refunds. There are hundreds of trailers that are far more entertaining than the atrocious movies from which they are culled, and you can enjoy an evening of them at this program of exploitation cinema previews curated by the staff of Sugar City. Life may be too short to make time to watch all of Robot Monster, Glen Or Glenda, Shogun Assassin, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Werewolves On Wheels, or Super Vixens (pictured), but here’s a chance to get all of the cheapest thrills from those and dozens of others in one sitting. If you thought The Hangover was transgressive comedy, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
