Hola and happy Cinco De Mayo! I’m not sure if Cinco De Mayo is as big a deal up north as it is down here in the Southwest but today is going to be one of the few Saturdays that I don’t go to the movies. Instead, I will be observing this day with friends, family (I am a fourth Spanish), and cerveza. But first, here’s the latest edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation Trailers…
(Be warned: Some of these trailers are a tad bit more explicit than some of the other trailers that I’ve featured as a part of this series. Watch with caution.)
1) Tombs of the Blind Dead (1971)
This is one of the first of the great Spanish horror films.
2) Return of the Evil Dead (1973)
The Blind Dead returned in this gory and violent sequel. One of my prize possessions is my Blind Dead box set, which was released (in the shape of a coffin, no less) by Blue Underground.
3) Vampyros Lesbos (1971)
This is the German trailer for Vampyros Lesbos, directed by the infamous Jess Franco. Just try to guess what this film is about…
4) Oasis of the Living Dead (1981)
In a career that has spanned over 500 films, Jess Franco has dealt with not only lesbian vampires but zombies as well…
5) Night of the Bloody Apes (1969)
From Rene Cardona comes this surprisingly bloody films about what happens when an ape’s heart is transplanted into a normal human being. Fortunately, there’s a wrestler around to save the day…
6) The Werewolf Vs. The Vampire Woman (1970)
Finally, let’s end things with a Paul Naschy film, shall we?
