Trailers from Hell


Recommended Posts

In 2005, Joe Dante, an astounding filmmaker of his own right, launched a youtube channel to focus on movie trailers of movies that ranged from science fiction to horror to exploitation films of the 1950s and 1960s decade as well as some classic films of the 1930s and 1940s of different genres. Gaining his expertise as an editor at New World Pictures under Roger Corman, he shared his fascination of films, even before Leonard Maltin and Robert Osborne. he was the original expert of movie knowledge. He was an early film critic that wrote an early predecessor of Leonard Maltin's movie guide back in the 1960s decade. Leonard Maltin had a discussion with him in a podcast interview a few years ago about that topic. Since then, Dante's channel had gained the interest of filmmakers, editors, film historians and screenwriters to talk about some of their favorite movie trailers and what makes them attracted to a particular film as they comment about it under whatever running time or trailer length from beginning to end. Your gurus range from John Landis, Mick Garris, Edgar Wright, Allison Anders, Roger Corman, Guillermo Del Toro, Mary Lambert and many others. To visit his website go to trailerfromhell.com or visit the Youtube channel under the name Trailers from Hell. The trailers are great, you never know what trailer they will comment next.

Here is another insightful commentary by Brian-Trenchard Smith about the film Becket starring Peter O'Toole and Richard Burton. Just listening to his voice and his upper-level vocabulary brings me joy as if one were in a classroom with him as the college professor giving us a lecture about a film that has been relatively obscure but has gained renewed attention.
