The collection of trailers that makes up this release was originally released seven years ago in the UK by a company called Nucleus Films.

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.

The DVD:

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.
