Dispatches From The Dead

Presented by Jackpot Records; DISPATCHES FROM THE DEAD: GOLDEN ERA TRAILER SCARE SHOW.

Resurrected from a distant, dusty grave comes this rare presentation of vintage horror trailers of the 1950s, 60s, 70s - and beyond!?! Back when the least discriminating of audiences, namely teenagers, sat aquiver in the front row of a single-screen moviehouse (or a backseat at the drive-in), these packaged pitches for mostly awful pictures were calculated to hypnotize them into returning for more in the ensuing weeks. Employing hokey narration, hyperbolic promises of shocks one may never recover from, and sometimes genuinely haunting imagery, these three dozen plus mini-movies will save you hours from enduring the actual features. Mostly original 35mm prints with the exception of a single brand new one! Program curated from and print courtesy of the Joe Dante & Jon Davison Collection at the Academy Film Archive.
