Trailers From Hell


Shout! Factory:

About the company:
Any movie can be great at 2 1/2 minutes!
Trailers -- you know -- those fast-paced 2-to-4 minute theatrical promo shorts that have preceded the Feature Attraction since the dawn of sound? An exciting montage of all The Best Parts of a movie the exhibitors want you to NEED to see! Full of swirling letters screaming hyperbolic promises of THRILLS! ACTION! MYSTERY! ROMANCE! Packing all the highlights of a whole picture into its own mini-movie in just a few minutes! 
TRAILERS FROM HELL is the brainchild of film director Joe Dante, new media entrepreneur Jonas Hudson, graphic artist Charlie Largent and producer Elizabeth Stanley. The series was born out of their mutual love of classic films of all types, but particularly horror and exploitation films.
Disks released:

  1. Trailers From Hell! Volume One [released by TFH]
  2. Trailers From Hell! Volume Two [released by Shout! Factory]
The first volume was released by TFH themselves, but the second is coming from Shout! Factory. I find it most practical to list all disks under the same banner here, and not separate them.
