Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Drafthouse Films partners with the American Genre Film Archive to deliver this outrageous collection of classic exploitation trailers taken directly from 35mm prints, and re-mastered in pristine High Definition. Rescued from almost certain destruction by Alamo Drafthouse Founder/CEO Tim League, these trailers offer a glimpse back into a bygone era when an element of danger and unpredictability greeted adventurous moviegoers brave enough to step off the beaten celluloid path. In addition to an extended interview with director Joe Dante, who goes into great detail about his time cutting trailers for New World Pictures, this remarkable collection also features audio commentary by veteran Alamo Drafthouse Programmers Lars Nilsen and Zack Carlson. Truly a must have for any serious genre fan.
