James Karen plays host and narrator to this "documentary" that has interviews with several famous faces wrapped around countless trailers from "B" movies. Tom Savini, Linnea Quigley, George Romero, John Russo, Bobbie Bresee, Forrest J. Ackerman, Russell Steiner and Samuel M. Sherman are among the people interviewed.
There are dozens of trailers show including those for: Dracula VS FRANKENSTEIN, SATAN'S SADIST, BLOOD CREATURE, BLOOD DRINKERS, BRIDES OF BLOOD, GIRLS FOR RENT, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, HORROR OF THE BLOOD MONSTERS, NURSE SHERRI, FRANKENSTEIN'S BLOODY TERROR, PSYCHOS IN LOVE, a few Hammer double features and much more.
If you're a fan of watching trailers then there are some pretty good items here to be viewed. The ones that really stand out were the Al Adamson films produced by Sherman. If you've seen these movies then you already know how bad they are yet when you see these trailers you really want to go watch them again. Say what you want about the films but the trailers are actually well-done and certainly build up an interest in the film. FRANKENSTEIN'S BLOODY TERROR, the alternate title to ASSIGNMENT TERROR is also well-made and sells the film perfectly.
As far as the interviews go, it's nice to have them but there's certainly nothing ground-breaking to them. Savini and Romero talk about what they remember of the drive-ins and they also talk about NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Quigley talks about how she got into the business and tells a couple stories about SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT. Russo and Romero also talk about their second feature THERE'S ALWAYS VANILLA.
