The collection of trailers that makes up this release was originally released seven years ago in the UK by a company called Nucleus Films. This was the first of four similar themed collections they have released to date. For this North American DVD that collection is being presented by Intervision Picture Corp. a sub-label of Severin Films.
So now without further ado here is a list of what trailers are included in this collection…
I Drink Your Blood & I Eat Your Skin, Blood Splattered Bride & I Dismember Mama, Switchblade Sisters, Caged Heat, Eyeball, Deranged, The Big Doll House, Bury Me An Angel, The Last House On The Left, The Street Fighter, Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS, Dr. Black and Mr. Hyde, Don’t Open The Window, The Human Tornado, Caged Virgins, Ebony, Ivory & Jade, Deadly Weapons, Torso, They Call Her One Eye, Death Ship, Master Of The Flying Guillotine, They Came from Within, The Thing With Two Heads, I Spit On Your Grave, Sweet Sugar, Girls For Rent, The Toolbox Murders, The Executioner, House of Whipcord, Truck Turner, God Told Me To, Doctor Butcher M.D., Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things, Night of the Bloody Apes, Blood Sucking Freaks, Ilsa: Harem Keeper Of The Oil Sheiks, The Single Girls, The Corpse Grinders, Zombie, Coffy, The Perils of Gwendoline, The Legend of The Wolf Woman, Satan’s Sadists, Disco Godfather, Let Me Die A Woman, The Doll Squad, Secrets of Sweet Sixteen, Cannonball, Autopsy, Fight For Your Life, Love Me Deadly, Wham! Bam! Thank you Spaceman, Shogun Assassin and Three on a Meathook.
Content-wise this collection has several titles that have, since the original release, been included as part of other trailer compilations. Nevertheless, there are more than enough titles available only in this collection to make it a worthwhile purchase.
All of the trailers are presented in an anamorphic widescreen. All transfers for this release have been remastered since that original release from Nucleus Films and quality-wise they are all in great shape.
This presentation comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital mono mix in English. The audio sounds clear and balanced throughout.
Extras for this release include a Grindhouse poster art gallery and a featurette titled ‘Bump and Grind: Emily Booth explores the world of Grindhouse Cinema’ (18 minutes 30 seconds – anamorphic widescreen). This latter extra gives a well-rounded overview of Grindhouse cinema. Also this extra was scripted by Stephen Thrower author of Nightmare USA. Overall this is an entertaining collection of trailers at a more than affordable price.
