In this satire on 70s B-movie industry, a young ditsy pretty blond arrives in Hollywood to try her luck as an actress. After some mishap, a shady agent finds her a job with a sleazy B-movie crew plagued by strange deadly accidents.
After escaping from an insane asylum, a medical student assumes the identity of a mysterious dead man, who appeared to be his doppelganger, and gets lured to a sinister island ruled by a mad scientist and his malformed men.
42nd Street Forever: Volume 1 is actually the second DVD in the popular series created by Ban 1 Productions. The first volume was a short run and is long out of print. Its title was 42nd Street Forever: Horror on 42nd Street. See more »
I Bought this because of the absolute love for the genres themselves and the way in which they were marketed. My wife can't believe I bought a DVD of just trailers.
What you get is about two hours of a cross section of the blood horror, sexploitation, blacksploitation, mondo, roadshow, and Euro sleaze trailers that used to run before and between grindhouse double features in the 70's. It may be little boring to most to own(I personally loved it the first time around, but only re-watch it when I show it to others)but it is definitely worth watching at least once.
If you are a fan of the genre, I recommend checking out this, it's volume 2, anything with a Something Weird Video imprint, and the book Sleazoid Express by Bill Landis and Michelle Clifford.
