Review by Chad

I really love watching movie trailers, and honestly, who doesn't? I think that putting together a trailer that can - in just a matter of seconds - make the viewer want to plunk down their cash and check out a movie is an art form in and of itself, and even if the movie being promoted is a piece of shit, you can always count on the trailer to make it look like one of the must-see events of the year. Of course, these trailers also serve their intended purpose of introducing viewers to new films that they may not have heard of, and I've long said that each of the active distributors out there should release a disc or set of discs devoted to these things for that reason alone.

With that in mind, POPCinema has decided to put together a collection of damned near all of their trailers from all of their brands into one two-disc set. There's no frills here, no extras (save for a trio of short bonus features), and no full-length movies, but you do get over five hours of trailers from Camp Motion Pictures, Retro Shock-O-Rama, Shock-O-Rama, Bloody Earth Films, Secret Key Motion Pictures, Seduction Cinema, Retro-Seduction Cinema, and of course, a special vault dedicated to Misty Mundae's filmography. Making the set even better is the fact that these trailers are the so-called "red band" versions, meaning that yes, you'll see plenty of blood and / or boobies in each and every last one of them.

It's sort of hard to find anything bad to say about this set, as even if some the movies in question weren't particularly great, the trailers themselves do a fine job of making the movie itself look damned good. Besides, when you pick up a set of discs that includes nothing but trailers, it's sort of hard to be let down; after all, you know exactly what you're getting ahead of time, and when you pop it into your player, you get exactly what you were promised: dozens upon dozens of trailers featuring hours of violence, bloodshed, monsters, T&A, lesbians, explosions, and of course, the biggest names from POPCinema's archives.

The trio of bonus features that I previously mentioned are nothing particularly special, and each of them have been previously released on other POPCinema discs. The first one is "Fangoria Weekend", which is only a couple of minutes in length and takes a look at the premiere of Screaming Dead at Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors back in 2004. Next up is "Retro Restoration Documentary", which is exactly what the title implies: a brief look at the restoration process used by Retro-Seduction Cinema for cleaning up their older releases from the sixties and seventies. Finally, we have "Misty Mundae: Skin to Scream", which is an early look at the lady who would go on to become one of my favorite actresses. It runs for about seventeen minutes and starts with a look at her Factory 2000 days (back when she had short hair!), and ends at the point when 2004's Lust for Dracula was an upcoming release. All of these features are interesting in their own little way, but make no mistake about it: the trailers are the main attraction here.

For those of you who enjoy any (or all) of the various brands of POPCinema, this set is a no-brainer as you can easily see how they've progressed over the years while reliving memories of their older films and finding out which of the ones you missed out on look interesting enough to check out. Those of you who aren't too familiar with their releases but enjoy campy, b-movie fun should also check it out... who knows, you may very well become a fan. 10/10, as it did everything that it set out to do and proved to be damned entertaining in the process.
