My Favorite in the 42nd Street Forever Series
14 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Volume 3: Exploitation Explosion" is my favorite DVD in the 42nd Street Forever series. As someone who loves trailers for drive- in/grindhouse movies, volume three offers a well balanced selection. There are trailers for action films, martial arts movies, sex comedies, docudramas, thrillers, and (my favorite genre) horror films. The quality of the trailers is mostly excellent, and the entire disk is a great time. It is also an educational experience. I watched the Carrie-with-snakes film Jennifer because I loved the trailer on this disk! I even bought (albeit cheaply) King Frat because of the commentary track on this disk! After re-watching this disk, the film I most want to see for the first time is Phase IV, which has a hypnotic trailer. The film I most want to re-watch is, yes, The Devil Times Five!

In addition, I love the DVD's commentary track by Fangoria editor Michael Gingold, Shock Cinema writer Chris Poggiali, and AV Maniacs editor Edwin Samuelson. These guys are both entertaining to listen to and know their schlock. My eyes are not sharp enough to catch Samuel Fuller as the villain in the trailer for The Young Nurses. Thankfully, these guys point him out (as well as every Dick Miller appearance on the disk). The most fascinating comments are for: Convoy, Demonoid, King Frat, and The Life and Times of Xavier Hollander. I never knew that some theaters showing Demonoid gave out diplomas to the surviving members of the audience! I have a Holy Grail!

All of the disks in Synapse's 42nd Street Forever series are worth watching, but I find Volume 3 the most fun.
