Lots of good stuff for horror trailer buffs
28 April 2000 | by (Milano, Italy) – See all my reviews

A great runaway compilation of highlights from tons of horror and SF trailers from the past, including Landis' own "An American Werewolf in London" and Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho". Great fun, although one wonders who decided to tack stuff related to "E.T." in the final part (probably a way to hype the movie, which was then being released).
