    So I just ordered the Shock Festival set and is wondering what other trailer compilations are out there and worth picking up. There seems to be a lot of these but trying to find reviews on them can be quite hard. Here's a list of some that I have found. Are any of these worth buying? Any more that I may have missed?



    42nd Street Forever Vol. 1-5, XXX-Treme (2005-2009) - These seem to be the best when it comes to quality and variety.


    Ban 1 Productions presents 42nd Street Forever!, Vol. 1 (2004) - The start of 42nd Street Forever?


    Trailer Trash (2004) - Sounds like a decent mix.


    Trailers from Hell - The Best Of, Vol. 1 (2010) - This sounds interesting. A bunch of trailers picked by Directors such as Landis, Garris, Dante, ect. They also include commentaries over them as well. Unfortunately looks like the trailers have watermarks over them.


    Festival of Fright 1, 2 and 3 (2006-2008) - These sounds pretty good although I believe they have watermarks on them and the third one is a DVD-R.


    Grindhouse Universe (2007) - Seems good but it was only limited to 1000 (Or was it 500?) I believe so quite hard to find now.


    Trailer Trash! (2008) and Trailer Trash Part 2: Grindhouse Sleaze Sampler (2008) - These don't sound too good as they are just trailers for their company's low budget films. Other then Slime City are there any other trailers worth watching?


    Coming Distractions (2004) - Comp. of Troma Trailers.


    Full Moon Pictures 45 Title Trailer Reel (2000) - Came with the Puppet Masters boxset.


    Hammer Trailer Collection, The: 20 Terrifying Trailers from the House of Hammer (1999) - Came with the Blood from the Mummy's Tomb DVD, hard to find now though.


    Extra Weird Sampler (2003) - Over a 100 trailers. Don't know if I would really care for the clips of films mixed in though, or the watermarks.


    Cheezy Horror Trailers Vol. 1 and 2, Cheezy Fantasy Trailers, Cheezy Sci Fi Trailers 1 and 2, Cheezy Exploitation Trailers, Cheezy Action Trailers (2006-2009) - Bootlegs? Apparently these repeat trailers, even on the same discs! What's the quality like and what trailers are included?


    Reflections of Evil (2002) - Couldn't find much info about this disc.


    Fantasic Movie Trailers 1-5 (2009-2010) - Any idea if these are any good? Looks like these are DVD-Rs which may speak for their quality.


    Horror and Sci-Fi Coming Attractions ! A Collection of Classic Movie Trailers (2009) - Sounds okay.


    Destination Earth: Alien Invaders (2009) - 50 Sci Fi Trailers. Not sure of quality though.


    Destination Outer Space (2009) - 50 Sci Fi Trailers. Not sure of quality though.


    Festival of 3-D Movie Trailers - The World 3-D Film Expo (2003) - A trailer for various 3D movies released in theaters. Unfortunately it sounds like only a few of them are actually in 3D which kind of defeats the purpose. I guess it is nice to have them all on one DVD though.


    Afro Promo - Black Cinema Trailers 1946-1976 (1997) - A compilation of Blaxploitation films. Could be fun.


    The Film Critics: Top 100 Films of All Time- The Greatest Collection of Movie Trailers (2004) - Probably not too much horror, but could be interesting. Sounds like the list is just some guys favorites though, not official or anything.


    Coming Attractions Time! A Collection of Classic Movie Trailers (2009) - Any good?


    More Coming Attractions Time! A Collection of Classic Movie Trailers (2009) - Any good?


    A Fistful of Trailers - 36 International Trailers of Spaghetti Westerns (2000) - Sounds like a good way to check out some lost Spaghetti Western classics. OOP now though.


    For a Few Previews More - 36 More International Trailers of Spaghetti Westerns (2003) - More lost classics. OOP as well i believe.


    Attack of the 80s (2007) - Sounds pretty good although it is a bootleg. I wonder how the quality is?

    My favorite is The Best of Sex & Violence (1981) which I own on DVDR. Sadly it was never released on DVD.

    Reflections of Evil isn't quite what you think. It's a massive repulsive and brilliant horror/experimental film done completely DIY on film. It probably had shown up in your research only because there are several clips and trailers used throughout. Honestly, it is one of my favorite films, although I have not seen the distributed copy (which trust me, I know can't be as good). Only the earlier, let's not give a damn about copyright version.

    Now, as far as trailer compilations go. the Extra Weird Sampler is crucial if you like that sort of thing. It really is a damn good release.

    On Grindhouse Universe, is that the one from the Creators of 42nd Street Forever. If so, I didn't know that it was a Limited Edition release. I purchased it when it was originally released. I also own the Extra Weird from Something Weird, and 42nd Street Forever, Volumes 1-5. Just wish there were more trailer comps. out on DVD. I love all those horror movie trailers.

    I may not be the best to comment but I really enjoy the two I have bought despite them being so pricey.

    42nd Street Forever, Volume 3: Exploitation Explosion
    42nd Street Forever - XXX-Treme Special Edition

    All the Ban-1 comps are worth owning (but all are OOP and very limited). These include 42nd Street Forever, Vol.1 (the original, not the Synapse partnership re-imagining), Grindhouse Universe, and Smut Palace Insanity.

    Of course all the Synapse 42nd Street's are all worth owning.

    I have a few others as well, such as Shock Festival (which is cool, but does contain a LOT of recycled material from the other comps I have that came out before it), the radio spots are awesome though. Other good ones include (but you'll need bootlegs since they were VHS or DVD-rs) The Best of Sex and Violence, Mad Ron's Prevues from Hell, Terror on Tape, Cumming Soon, etc. etc.

    Yeah it was released from Ban 1 Productions and was limited to 1000 copies. There is actually a thread dedicated to it on here.

    Trailer Trash 2 has Misty Mundae's Vampire Strangler trailer. Shows Misty showing off her oral skills.

    Nice to see all the trailer love! The three Ban 1 dvds are out of print but everybody please continute to grab the Synapse releases. We're collaborating on the 42nd street forever blu ray that has LOTS of new stuff in High Def. Cant divulge anymore details . Don May will do that when its time, but its going to be pretty amazing.

    As for comp faves , my personal fave from years ago was "Mad Rons Prevues from Hell". It kinda started my itch for exploitation and horror trailers. You can kinda see our cheesy as hell homage in the Smut Palace disc.

    I dont know if anyone remembers a grey market boot company called Threat Theatre? Dear me, they had some savage shit in their collection and the owner Todd who went on to make films like the Necro Files put together some stunningly shocking compilations.

    This guy ws on the edge when it came to horror, exploitation and weird stuff.

    A 42nd Street Forever Blu Ray would be awesome! Any idea when it may come out, by the end of the year hopefully?

    As for Mad Rons Prevues from Hell, it looks like it will be coming out on DVD Sept. 14th from Virgil Films. Looks pretty damn good!

    Some of the most entertaining discs in my collection are my trailer compilations. I swear I could watch these things for hours. Just thought I'd add some more that aren't listed above:

    42nd Street Forever: The Blu-Ray Edition (Synapse)
    Celluloid Bloodbath: More Prevues From Hell (Virgil Films)
    Drive-In Delirium Volume 1 (Umbrella Entertainment) (4 Disc Set)
    Drive-In Delirium Volume 2: The Offspring (Umbrella Entertainment) (4 Disc Set)
    Drive-In Delirium Volume 3: Retro Rampage (Umbrella Entertainment) (4 Disc Set)
    Grindhouse Trailer Classics Volume 1 (Nucleus Films)
    Grindhouse Trailer Classics Volume 2 (Nucleus Films)
    Grindhouse Trailer Classics Volume 3 (Nucleus Films)
    Shock Festival (Bloody Earth Films)
    Trailer War (Alamo Drafthouse)
    Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide (Nucleus Films)

    The Drive-In Delirium sets are insane and probably the best trailer compilations out there. Between the three volumes there are 12 discs with about a thousand trailers total among them.

    Full Moon put out a trailer compilation titled "Blood of 1000 Virgins" which is trailers consisting of sexploitation films relating "virgins." It's an "ok" disc, problem is some of the trailers are encoded incorrectly and have a stuttering feel to them. Not all of them do this, but a handful do and it's quite annoying.

    Colour Correct My Cock is the ultimate greasy trailer compilation that truly gives you the real grindhouse experience. Available on Blu-ray and DVD at DiabolikDVD (no Amazon on this one, as it was self-released by Vagrancy Films), and those might be the last copies.

    It's non-stop insanity, and 99% stuff not seen on any other compilation! It really is the ultimate trailer compilation. And I'm not just saying that because I contributed a few trailers to it and have a special thanks in the credits. Plus, it even comes with either a Zombi or Anthropophagus air freshener!

    Cool..I have Colour Correct My Cock, but haven't even opened it yet. I'll check it out soon. I think it comes with a Fulci Zombie air freshner too. Ha!

    Trailer Wars was OK....it kinda got dull in the middle.

    Amybody ever check out Forbidden Transmission? It was on some public access channel. You can find episodes on YouTube and various torrent trackers. Those are pretty entertaining compliations.
