Trailer compilations on Blu-ray


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

Drive-In Delirium: Maximum '80s Overdrive

Drive-In Delirium: The New Batch

Drive-In Delirium: With a Vengeance

Drive-In Delirium: Dead By Dawn


Trailer Trauma Series (Garagehouse Pictures, USA):
Trailer Trauma

Trailer Trauma 2: Drive-In Monsterama

Trailer Trauma 3: '80s Horror-Thon

Trailer Trauma 4: Television Trauma (TV spots)

Trailer Trauma V: 70s Action Attack


Kung Fu Trailers of Fury series (Severin, USA):

Trailer War (Drafthouse Films, USA)

Exhumed Films: 20 Years of Terror (Exhumed Films, USA)

Trashploitation (SRS Cinema, USA)


Worth mentioning:

The Electric Boogaloo & Machete Maidens Unleashed! Blu-Ray (Umbrella Entertainment, Australia) includes nearly 2 hours of trailers for various Cannon films, and over 1 hour of various films shot in the Philippines.

The Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! Blu-Ray (Umbrella Entertainment, Australia) includes a trailer reel with a whooping 185 minutes of Ozploitation trailers.

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

Here's a... trailer (?!) for this trailer compilation:


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.  ::)

Australian label Umbrella Entertainment just announced the 6th and final entry in their Drive-In Delirium series of Blu-Ray trailer compilations, to be available early next month (April 7th).

This final volume will feature 181 trailers, and a running time of 7(?!) hours, with an additional 2 hours of trailers presented in SD taken from VHS sources included as a special feature.

Here's a promo for this release:
