Author Topic: Favorite Trailers?  (Read 1562 times)

Does anyone have a favorite trailer to a film?

My picks for this category would be:
- Children shouldn't Play with Dead things
- Wizard of Gore
- The Corpse Grinders
- The Undertaker and His Pals
- The Boarding House

and a few more which I cannot think of at this time. Each of my picks are extreme and define a time period (early 70s horror cinema.)

Check out DR. STRANGELOVE trailer at IMDB. Great trailer.

My fave trailer right now is the one for CATS AND DOGS. Its a really stupid live action/CGI animal comedy.

It had me in tears while watching it, its that funny.

I thought the trailer for TCM was good, who will survive and what will be left of them.

On a same note, has anyone seen the trailers for The Teminator on the recent DVD re-release, talk about cheesy, in one of the trailer it almost makes out that Arnie's a good guy.

The Three on a Meathook trailer was a favorite of mine long before I ever recognized the name 'William Girdler.'

"Little broken dolls that go on dancing ... after the music has stopped."

It's genius.

There was a video circulating in the late eighties/early nineties titled 'Mad Ron's Previews From Hell.' I caught it when I was in high school, and it had a huge impact on my movie viewing. I think I rented that tape every week (I finally bought a copy a few years ago; that's where the long version of 'Meathook' comes from). It became a checklist for films that I had to see. It's still the single best trailer collection ever compiled for a video, in my opinion. Some of the amazing trailers include the double feature "I drink your blood/I eat your skin" ... another favorite trailer of mine. 'Torso' is a lot of fun, too.

I actually have a copy of mad ron's previews from hell and enjoyed it allot. There are a ton of hard to find trailers compiled on it. Pretty much all of my favorite trailers I listed I saw on this video. I was wondering if anyone had heard of it before. I believe it has a total of 46 trailers.

Like I said, Mad Ron is king of the trailer trash in my mind. The best trailer comp I've ever seen. 'Twas a HUGE influence on my film tastes ... as influential as Joe Bob Briggs' books and Re-Search Incredibly Strange Films. I aimed to see every film featured in Mad Ron's. Thanks to Ron, I've seen most of them over the years ... but not all of them. Hence, it remains a continuing mission.

I also used to enjoy The Smut Peddler comp tapes, but I haven't seen them around in ages.

Something Weird Video has released a host of comp tapes over the past few years (a number of the trailers on come from their Trashorama series). The SW collections are all fun, but they don't have the heart (or selection) Mad Ron had.

Mine is the theatrical Pearl Harbor trailer.  Not exactly subject matter for this website, perhaps...  But that trailer is great.

When I first saw it in the theatre, it was one of the first showings of it, months ago.  Some of the older people were crying.

The best trailer I've ever seen award goes to the Kubrick version of The Shining.  Be sure to check it out when Warner redoes the Kubrick collection this summer.  Also the teaser for Gladiator really got me fired up every time I saw it.

Worst trailer ever: What Lies Beneath.  Not only is it a terrible trailer that makes the movie look awful, it ruins the whole first hour of the plot.
