Here it is! The Trailer for Avengers: Infinity War!


Here it is, friends and lovers!

It’s the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War!

Remember how we all got chills when we heard James Spader saying, “I’m going to show you something beautiful…” during the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer?  That’s how I feel when I hear, “There was an idea…” at the start of this trailer.

Enjoy!

6 Trailers In Honor Of Val’s Search For The Evil Eye


Hi, everyone!

Welcome to another special edition of Lisa Marie’s favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation film trailers!

Today, for her music video of the day post, Val took a look at the video for Josh Ritter’s The Evil Eye.  I’m the one who suggested that video to her.  Little did I know that it would lead to her watching a handful of films, all of which were either titled Evil Eye or, at the very least, has a connection to eyes that might have been evil!

So, in honor of Val’s commitment to her craft, I decided that today’s six trailers would be for six movies that Val either watched or mentioned in her review of The Evil Eye!  Unfortunately, it turns out that not all of those movies have trailers on YouTube.   And I already shared the trailer for Mario Bava’s The Girl Who Knew Too Much (a.k.a. Evil Eye) last week.

Let’s see what I did find!

  1. Bruka, Queen of Evil (1973)

I could not find a trailer for Queen of Evil.  However, when I did a search for “Queen of Evil Trailer,” one of the trailers that came up was for Bruka, Queen of Evil.  I’ve never heard of this film before but it looks like something some of our readers would like.

2. Manhattan Baby (1982)

However, YouTube did have a trailer for Lucio Fulci’s Manhattan Baby, which was also known as Evil Eye.  Actually, Evil Eye was probably a better title for it.  I’m one of the few people willing to defend this film and even I’m unsure just what exactly Manhattan Baby is supposed to mean.

3. The Green Inferno (1988)

Val’s search for information about The Evil Eye led her to Bloody-Disgusting.com, which featured an infamous review of The Green Inferno.  Here’s the trailer for 1988’s Green Inferno, which should not be mistaken for Eli Roth’s Green Inferno.

4. The Green Inferno (2015)

Here’s the trailer for Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno, which I have long defended as being a political satire.

5. The Wicker Man (1973)

Among the films cited as an inspiration for The Evil Eye video was the original Wicker Man!  This is a classic, even without bees.

6. Evil Eye (2014)

Finally, though I couldn’t find a trailer for 1975’s Evil Eye, I did find a trailer for this 2014 Evil Eye!

 

6 Eurohorror Trailers For October 22nd


Hi there and welcome to this week’s special October edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation film trailers!

My latest edition is dedicated to Eurohorror!  Some of these trailers are not going to be safe for work.  Of course, you probably shouldn’t be watching trailers at work in the first place.  But, in case you are, don’t let your boss catch you.  If you do get caught and lose your job, feel free to leave a comment under this post and let us know about your experience.  We love to hear that we’re changing lives.

  1. The Awful Dr. Orloff (1962)

The Awful Dr. Orloff was directed by Jess Franco and is considered to be the first Spanish horror film.  It was also an international success that helped to launch Franco’s amazingly prolific career.

2. The Girl Who Knew Too Much (a.k.a. Evil Eye) (1963)

This film, from director Mario Bava, is considered to be the first true giallo film.  When it was released in the United States, it was retitled Evil Eye.

3. The Shiver of the Vampires (1971)

From French director Jean Rollin comes this story of vampires hiding in grandfather clocks.  (Actually, there’s more to it than just that.  But that’s the scene that everyone seems to remember.)

4. Tombs of the Blind Dead (1971)

Arguably, this was the first Spanish zombie film.

5. The Grapes of Death (1978)

Again from director Jean Rollin, this is the first French zombie movie.

6. The Living Dead Girl (1981)

Finally, one last trailer from Jean Rollin.  You might not be able to guess it from the trailer but The Living Dead Girl is actually one of the most poignant films ever made.

 

Here’s The New Trailer For Black Panther!


Hi, everyone!

Y’all have probably already seen this trailer.  Though I’m currently trying to take a mini-vacation from social media this week, I still do check every morning just to make sure that all of my friends in Canada are okay.  When I checked this morning, everyone — and I do mean everyone — was talking about the new trailer for Black Panther.

Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s what everyone’s so excited about!

Kylo, Rey, Leia, and Luke: The Trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi


“I need someone to show me my place in all this.”

After watching this trailer ten times and seeing everything from Luke’s robot hand to Kylo apparently about to open fire on his mother’s ship to the new pilot of the Millennium Falcon and finally, to Kylo extending his hand to Rey, all I can say is take my money now!

Is Rey a Kenobi?  Supporters of this theory have been pointing out that Rey and Ben Kenobi both have the same fighting stance:

It would make sense.  Star Wars has always been the story of the Skywalkers and a Kenobi.  With Kylo being a Skywalker and a Solo, Ben Kenobi is the only major Star Wars character to not have a descendant involved in the sequels, unless it is Rey.  Just as a Kenobi once taught a Skywalker will a Skywalker now teach a Kenobi?

Will Luke survive The Last Jedi?  Up until two years ago, I would have said there was no way that a Star Wars film would kill off a major character like Luke Skywalker,  Then Han Solo died and the universe no longer made sense.

December 15th can not get here soon enough.

6 Trailer For October 8th, a Special Roger Corman edition!


Welcome to the latest edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation Film Trailers!

Since today’s edition from 4 Shots From 4 Films was dedicated to Roger Corman, I figured why not do the same with this post.  The trailers below may be a varied bunch but they have at least one thing in common!  They’re all trailers for Corman films!

Enjoy!

  1. Bucket of Blood (1959)

In Bucket of Blood, Dick Miller plays, for the first time, a character named Walter Paisley.  Walter is an artist who discovers that the dead make the best models!

2. Little Shop of Horrors (1960)

Dick Miller returned to play a supporting role in Little Shop of Horrors, where his co-stars included a young Jack Nicholson.

3. The Terror (1963)

Both Jack Nicholson and Dick Miller returned for The Terror and they were joined by Boris Karloff.

4. The Raven (1963)

At around the same time, Karloff and Nicholson were co-starring with Vincent Price and Peter Lorre in The Raven.

5. The Masque of the Red Death (1964)

Price would return for The Masque of the Red Death.

6. The Tomb of Ligeia (1964)

To my knowledge, this film was the final time Corman directed Vincent Price, though he produced a few more films that featured him.

What do you think about all the trailers, random director with a tommy gun?
