Over 80 trailers and over three hours from the first two DVDs and some new trailers are contained in this edition covering the gamut of violence, motorcycles, revenge, and learning some secrets to living.
Synapse seems to have used most of their best trailers for the earlier volumes in this series. However, Volume 2 (actually the third one, as Ban 1 Productions had an earlier set unreleased by Synapse) is still lots of fun for fans of vintage exploitation. The main problems with this set is there isn't a lot of diversity (whose idea was it to clump all the blaxploitation, sexploitation, racing, etc trailers together?) and many of the films were made before the heyday of 42nd Street (particularly the Sword & Sandal set towards the end). Also, a few of the trailers (especially the racing ones) are rather dull. Still, there's a lot of fun to be had for either lifelong buffs or folks recently turned onto this cinema by the Tarantino / Rodriguez collaboration "Grindhouse". (6/10)
