It’s a holiday and you know what that means!
Or maybe you don’t. Sometimes, I forget that not everyone can read my mind. Anyway, I used to do a weekly post of my favorite grindhouse trailers. Eventually, it went from being a weekly thing to being an occasional thing, largely due to the fact that there’s only so many trailers available on YouTube. Now, Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation Film Trailers is something that I usually bring out on a holiday.
So, here are 6 trailers for the holiday season!
Christmas Evil (1980)
Believe it or not, this is actually a really good movie. In fact, it’s probably the best killer Santa movie ever made. The ending will blow your mind.
Don’t Open Till Christmas (1984)
This, on the other hand, is one of the worst Christmas movies ever. I reviewed it a few years ago.
Black Christmas (1974)
Long before he made A Christmas Story, Bob Clark directed this classic holiday-themed horror film.
Black Christmas (2006)
Of course, as happens with any classic Canadian horror film from the 70s, Black Christmas was remade in the aughts.
Santa Claus Conquers The Martians (1964)
There was no way that I wasn’t going to include this trailer.
And finally, we have a trailer that’s not really a Christmas film but it’s so trippy, festive, and oddly disturbing that I had to share it.
Pinocchio’s Birthday Party (1973)
