i’ve recently become addicted to old movie trailers (e.g., the 42nd street forever dvd collections) and i found a site i thought i’d pass along. trailers from hell features old trailers with commentary by modern horror directors like john landis, edgar wright, eli roth, joe dante, and others. trailers can be viewed with or without the commentary, but hearing directors discuss the influence of these films is usually the most interesting part. the trailers themselves run the gamut from absolute classics (psycho, peeping tom, night of the living dead) to schlocky trash (squirm, creature from the haunted sea, exorcist 2). i haven’t seen them all, but i’ve included four that i particularly liked below… see the rest at trailersfromhell.com.
three on a meathook (eli roth)
suspiria (edgar wright)
