As a part of this October’s horrorthon, I am pleased to announce the return of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation film trailers! This used to be a regular (and fairly popular) feature here on the Shattered Lens. Unfortunately, a few years ago, I discovered that I had shared almost every worthwhile trailer on YouTube and, as such, it became more of a “special occasion” type of feature.
However, enough time has passed that there are now new trailers on YouTube! Yay!
So, let’s get things started with 6 Trailers for The First of October!
(Why six? Because Lisa doesn’t do odd numbers!)
- I Drink Your Blood (1971)
Let’s start things off with I Drink Your Blood (1971), a film about what happens when hippies get rabies. None other than Ryan C, the Trashfilm Guru himself, has described I Drink Your Blood as being one of the greatest grindhouse films of all time.
2. Psychomania (1973)
What’s the best way to deal with blood-crazed hippies? How about an English motorcycle gang? This was also the final film of George Sanders.
3. Werewolves on Wheels (1971)
Speaking of motorcycle gangs, you can check out Gary’s review of Werewolves on Wheels by clicking here!
4. The Beast Must Die (1974)
Not all werewolves ride motorcycles! Some of them terrorize remote locations and are hunted by Peter Cushing, as seen in The Beast Must Die.
5. Shock Waves (1977)
Peter Cushing went from filming The Beast Must Die to appearing in Shock Waves, perhaps the greatest Nazi zombie film ever made. Check out my review here!
6. The Loch Ness Horror (1982)
However, zombie nazis aren’t the only thing that live in the water! Just ask the people of Scotland!
What do you think, random hippie with cat?
