Dig that voice over on the trailer to Dr. Black and Mr. Hyde ("Shot full of lead and he's still not dead"). I love the Something Weird Video's Dusk to Dawn Drive-In Trashorama Show compilations for gems like that. Continuing on my quest to watch the series this May (all except volume two, which I do not own), I come to volume three in the series.
My favorite trailer in this volume was the one for They're Coming to Get You (aka All the Colors of the Dark). The beautiful Edwige Fenech was chased by Satanists as the voice over declares: "They're coming to get YOU YOU YOU!" Other fun Euro-horror trailers, included the teaser for The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave and the supposedly based on fact (yeah, right) The Legend of the Wolf Woman.
In terms of trailers for films I have not seen, I was rather taken with Tomcats, which looked to be a violent crime film. Thumb Tripping with Meg Foster and Bruce Dern looked intense as well. Still, the unknown film that I most wanted to see after watching the trailer was the street fighting film Bogard, one of several trailers for blaxploitation films on this set (Trouble Man looked fun as well).
Will these films live up to their previews? Who knows, but probably not. The trailers for both Shame of the Jungle and Ruby in this volume did great jobs at selling two very weak films. Regardless, if I ever track down the above, whether I liked the films or not, I would still have to respect the marketers that edited the trailers. They did their job. Because of their advertising, I wanted to see the films.
Finally, I have to confess that I was humming the repetitive song from the Goodbye Emmanuelle trailer for three days after watching the disk! All in all, volume three was a good time.
