GRINDHOUSE cinemas were located in the sleaziest, most run-down US inner-cities and New York’s 42nd Street was one of the most famous trash pit hangouts for denizens of the lower depths. From dusk ‘til dawn these moviehouses would unspool a mind-boggling assortment of English language and foreign exploitation movies featuring lashings of sex, gore and violence.
For the first time ever on British DVD you can now sit back and take a twisted trip back to the glory days of the sleazy 60s and 70s for a roaring rampage through a two-hour hand-picked collection of some of the most insane examples of trailer trash ever to slash and burn their way through a Grindhouse cinema projector.
Directors such as Eli (HOSTEL) Roth, Rob (THE DEVIL’S REJECTS) Zombie and Quentin (GRINDHOUSE) Tarantino have all since revisted these movies and have made their own supercharged movies relying heavily on the essence of many of these Seventies Grinhouse cinema classics. Tarantino in particular has taken a lot of his inspiration from these movies and trailers, and we’ve included some of his favourites here – see if you can spot them!
Of course, most of the films themselves could never live up to these incredible trailers, some of which can today be considered true masterpieces of creative hyperbolic advertising and marketing. With their often hilariously over-the-top voice-overs and mind-bending taglines – and all the most graphic glimpses from the movies themselves, you won’t find a more vivid distillation of the best and worst that Grindhouse had to offer!
Many of the actors and filmmakers seen here went on to much bigger and better things, so it’s no surprise that these movies have since achieved cult status, making GRINDHOUSE TRAILER CLASSICS a must own DVD. And it’s ideal for parties too…
