6 Trailers for Valentine’s Day Weekend

Happy St. Valentine's Day

I’m running a little bit late on getting this Valentine’s weekend edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation Trailers up and running and for that, I apologize.  Last night, around midnight, I found myself at Target waiting for them to start selling the latest Twilight movie…well, let’s just not go into it, okay?  Instead, here’s 6 trailers for your Valentine’s weekend.

1) Valentine (2001)

Oh.  My.  God.  This is such a bad movie!  Seriously terrible.  However, it is Valentine’s Day weekend…

2) My Bloody Valentine (1981)

The original. 

3) My Bloody Valentine 3D (2009)

The remake, which is a lot better than Avatar.

4) Emmanuelle (1974)

Valentine’s weekend is all about either celebrating romance or being alone and bitter.  I’ve been told that Emmanuelle can be used for both of those purposes.  “This movie will be shown only in special theaters.”

5) Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals (1977)

Not surprisingly, Italian director Joe D’Amato put his own individual spin on Emmanuelle (or Emanuelle as he spelled it, in order to get around copyright laws).  This is probably one of the more explicit trailers I’ve ever posted so keep that in mind before you watch it. 

6) Superfly (1972)

This trailer isn’t connected to Valentine’s Day at all but it’s got a lot of style.

Finally, let me just say, regardless of whether you’re in love, in lust, or mired in lonely bitterness, Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. “Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals”. Yes, well…A rather awkward thematic pairing of appetite types. At least it seems to have solid acting and a credible, coherent plot.

    Was there an “Emanuelle Holocaust”?


    • It wouldn’t surprise me to discover that there was an Emanuelle Holocaust, especially when you consider that Joe D’Amato was behind the Italian Emanuelle films and a good deal of D’Amato’s reputation as a filmmaker rests on the fact that there was nothing — and I mean nothing — that he would not exploit. Add to that, there was both a Cannibal Holocaust and a Zombie Holocaust, so I’m sure they got around to Emanuelle Holocaust at some point.
