Back in the day when 42nd Street New York was sleazy and easy and not Disneyfied to the sky, these kind of movies ruled 24/7/365 and 366 on leap year of course.
Back in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's New York City's most memorable road was the home to the derelicts of society. A mesh mash of flotsam and jetsam mixed together.
All the one room movie houses on 42nd Street showed cheap budget horror and shock films or "Grindhouse Cinema" to the lay man. They also showed porno films ! All the films were hardcore and had actual dialog and story lines to follow. This was called "The Golden Age of Adult Cinema" but it all came to an end in the mid to late 1980's when the home video format war between Beta and VHS was swiftly won by VHS.
Adult Film Distributors stopped sending out 35 millimeter reels to these theaters and a majority of them either went video projection or deliberately withheld what adult reels they did have in their possession and played them over and over till they were far beyond repair.
On this DVD you get 46 trailers total from the Golden Era. One is actually from the 1970's but the rest are pure 1980's. A small majority of the trailers star "The Hedgehog" himself Ron Jeremy. You also get the late great John Holmes and Lisa DeLeeuw before they died of Aids ! Also be on the lookout for the Puerto Rican Mancrusher Vanessa Del Rio. She is hotter than chili peppers and cayenne red pepper mix !
