Last Night, while getting ready to see John Carter, one of the trailers shown was for Pixar’s Brave. It’s one I haven’t seen before, but I really like the way it ended. Here, suitors perform in an archery competition for what appears to be Merida’s (Kelly MacDonald) hand in marriage. Looks like fun!
Well, it took a nice, long weekend up at Lake Texoma (I actually got in the water and practiced swimming which is a big deal for a drowningphobe like me but then I ended up cutting my foot on a rock on the lakefloor — agck!) and another few nights of a little bit more sleep than usual but I am happy to say that I am back and I’ve brought the latest edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation Trailers with me! So, without further ado, let’s get started…
1) Killer Fish (1979)
In honor of my weekend at the lake, let’s start out with this trailer for a little film called Killer Fish…
2) Dogs (1976)
Now, I may have conquered my fear of swimming for like 10 minutes at the lake but I have yet to conquer my fear of dogs and this trailer shows why. Seriously, dogs are freaking scary!
3) The Doberman Gang (1972)
Dogs don’t just kill people. They rob banks too.
4) King Frat (1980)
Wow! Those dogs are scary, aren’t they? Let’s take a break from scary dogs with another breed of dog — the American frat boy.
5) Chain Gang Women (1971)
I love trailers that brag about how the characters in the movie live by only “one rule.” (Speaking of chain gangs, I recently saw an excellent film from 1932 that was called I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang. But that’s something I’ll save for a future post…)
6) The Stranger and the Gunfighter (1974)
Yes, between the chain gangs, the killer fish, the dogs, and the frat boys, it’s a scary world out there. Luckily, protection is right around the corner because here comes “(a) savage…a saint…a stranger…”
