Title: Trailer compilations on Blu-ray
Post by: Funktion on 17 Aug 2020 - 17:15
I'm a sucker for trailer compilations. :'(

There's something about those short reels of exciting bits and cool voice overs, put together to entice people (or, like many film trailers frequently did, to basically con them by misrepresenting the advertised film :-\), that really appeals to me.
Some feature alternate angles or footage. Some don't even feature a second of actual film footage, and are an entirely separate piece by itself!

The Blu-Ray format is great for these compilations, since it allows for not only better quality, but with more storage capacity the number of trailers included in some of these releases is simply staggering.

Here are some of the currently available trailer compilations:

Drive-In Delirium series (Umbrella Entertainment, Australia):

Drive-In Delirium: '60s and '70s Savagery

There's a new trailer compilation by the AGFA out now, featuring more obscure fare than usual (including some SOV stuff).

Speaking of trailer compilations, there's some cool stuff to look forward to this year, since Mondo Macabro is working on one, and Garagehouse Pictures is working on another volume (the 6th) in their Trailer Trauma series.  ::)
