John Landis directs this compilation of trailers of classic Universal horror films. It's a neat little curiosity hosted by a young and very cute Jamie Lee Curtis. See her today and then watch this and it will depress you. Time really kicks the snot out of us doesn't it? Anyway it's worth a look for the trailers and Jamie Lee walking around on Universal sets that have probably long since been demolished or remodeled beyond recognition.
