Storyline

A psychoanalyst suggests that the audience use hypnovista and watch these 19 movie previews, shown more or less in chronological order. The trailers from the 30s and 50s rely on a mix of male voice-overs touting shocking but true revelations, block-letter texts proclaiming unleashed passion and shackled love, and black and white scenes of assault and bare flesh. By the 60s, the previews are in color, block letters are gone, and the themes either explore the sexual revolution or take us up close to a dangerous world. The tales are no longer cautionary of girls gone astray; instead, we're warned to watch out. A few ads and penny-arcade loops are thrown in for diversion. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fantastic compilation well worth owning!
2 May 2000 | by (DVD Drive-In) – See all my reviews

Rhino Home Video released way back in 1985 a compilation of trailers called "Sleazemania". It was compiled by Johnny Legend and helped turn a LOT of people onto films in the bizarre calibre. Here are trailers for lost rarities such as "Lash of the Penitentes", "The Young Seducers", "Jail Bait", "Pin Down Girls", "The Flesh Merchant", "Escape from Womens' Prison", and so much more! Also includes some rare nudie loops from the 1940's, advertisements for the lobby and a horror movie marathon, and following the credits, a short demonstrationon how a strip artist teaches her followers how to titillate the audience! This isn't too easy to find, took some snooping around, but I finally found it, and was more than satisfied! I promise, there is something here for everyone who is at least remotely interested in something a little different from your everyday movie! Highly recommended. I have yet to see the sequels, but judging by the content here, I'm assuming there's more of the same, so it would be wise to check those out, too!
