6 Trailers for Valentine’s Day

Well, since Valentine’s Day is nearly over, how about a new edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation Film trailers?

These trailers are all about celebrating the love so let’s get started!

The Diary of a High School Bride (1959)

I reviewed this one here.

The Harrad Experiment (1973)

Oh my God, this movie is so 70s.  Check out my review here.

Harrad Summer (1974)

The Harrad Experiment was so bad successful that it was followed by a sequel.

The Teacher (1974)

This actually isn’t a bad film.  I reviewed it here.

Gable and Lombard (1976)

I recently discovered this film.  I haven’t watched it yet but I hear its terrible.

In Love (1983)

I know that I’ve shared this trailer in the past but what can I say?  Even though it’s an edited trailer and I’ve never seen the actual film, I still love this trailer.  That song really gets stuck in your head.

What do you think, romantic trailer kitties?

6 Trailers Full Of Laughter And Somewhat Good Cheer


Well, it’s Sunday again and that mean that it’s time for another edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation Film trailers!  

Usually, on Sunday, I share trailers that feature a lot of violence.  That’s just the nature of grindhouse trailers.  But, today, I’m not in the mood for violence, even if it is deliberately over-the-top grindhouse violence.

That’s why these 6 trailers are all for comedic films.  They are full of the promise of laughter and good cheer.  Well, somewhat good cheer.  There really aren’t that many truly cheerful grindhouse trailers.

Laughter, of course, is not the solution to the world’s problems.  But, at the very least, it can make it easier to live from day to day.

Even the grindhouse understands that!

1. Beach Ball (1965)

2. The Groove Tube (1974)

3. The Chicken Chronicles (1977)

4. The Kentucky Fried Movie (1977)

Our own Gary Loggins reviewed this film last year!

5. The Beach Girls (1982)

I reviewed this one last year as well.

6. Young Doctors In Love (1982)


6 Late Trailers For A Monday

Hi, everyone!

So, usually, I post my latest edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation Film trailers on Sunday.  However, yesterday was the final day that Cabaret was scheduled to be performed down here, at the Winspear Opera House, in Dallas.  Jeff and I caught the final matinée performance and it was absolutely wonderful!

However, it also meant that I did not have time to do my usual Sunday morning posting.

Still, I am nothing if not dedicated!  So, here below, are 6 late trailers for this wonderful Monday!  Admittedly, these trailers may feel a little bit random.  There’s no real theme to be found … or maybe there is.

Randomness can be a theme.



1) The Dark (1979)

I actually own a couple of DVD boxsets that feature The Dark but I’ve never actually gotten around to watching the movie.  Say what you will about the apparent cheapness of the special effects, the monster does look like he could serve as potential nightmare fuel.

2) The Evil (1978)

It feels appropriate to follow up The Dark with The Evil.  I’ve never seen this one either, but it’s apparently a haunted house film.  There’s some evil involved.

3) The House Where Evil Dwells (1982)

On the other hand, I have seen The House Where Evil Dwells.  Oh my God, is it ever a boring movie!  But the trailer’s kinda fun.

4) Ghosthouse (1988)

Despite what the credits may say, Ghosthouse was not directed by Humbert Humphrey.  This is an Umberto Lenzi film.  This trailer is actually pretty tame by Italian horror standards but it’s still graphic enough for me to suggest that you not watch it at work or if you’re disturbed by fake-looking gore.

5) Zombie 5: Killing Birds (1988)

I actually reviewed Killing Birds on this site a while ago.  I’ve always liked this trailer.  It’s full of atmosphere and it has an almost dream-like intensity to it.

6) Teenage Exorcist (1991)

And finally, let’s end things with the trailer for Teenage Exorcist!

So, I guess we did kind of end up with a theme here — evil monsters, haunted houses, and stuff.  I’m glad that worked out!


Well, damn.  That’s not nice…
