A god guilty pleasure!!!!!!
12 February 2003 | by (pembroke,massachusetts.) – See all my reviews

Fun and amusing documentary has a collection of trailers for horror movies from the 40's-60's. Curtis gives a great introduction and the whole movie is made tongue-in-cheek on purpose. A guilty pleasure!!!!!!
