6 Trailers For A Saturday Afternoon


Hi.  It’s Saturday and that can only mean that it’s time for any edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation Trailers!

1) Crater Lake Monster (1977)

This is one of those films that seems to show up in a dozen or so public domain DVD compilation packs.  The “lake” in this film looks a lot like White Rock Lake and when I first saw this film, I was convinced it had actually been filmed down here in Dallas.  However, I subsequently found that there actually is a Crater Lake up in Oregon.  There’s no word yet on whether or not there’s any monsters living in that lake but you have to figure there would be, what with it being Oregon and all.

2) Shogun Assassin (1980)

Just the story of a single dad and his baby.  Awwwwww!

3) 100 Rifles (1969)

Obviously, this was one of the many American attempts to make a Spaghetti western.  “This film has a message…”

4) Soylent Green (1973)

Yes, we all know what’s in Soylent Green.

5) Xtro (1982)

Oh my God, this trailer freaks me out!

6) Scarface (1983)

Oh, stop it.  I don’t care how many “respectable” actors are in the film, you know that Scarface is like totally a grindhouse film.
