I'm a big fan of trailer compilations, and over the last decade we've seen a lot hit the home video market. Niche genre archives have been plundered and reels have been unearthed. Companies like Something Weird Video and Synapse Films have been releasing them for years, but nothing on the scale of the upcoming release from new label Garagehouse Pictures.
Trailer Trauma 3: 80s Horror-thon is, appropriately, the third trailer compilation from this company that launched last year with the release of the previously lost kung fu buddy comedy, Ninja Busters. The major difference between this release and previous trailer compilations is that TT3 clocks in at an astonishing seven and a half hours of blood, gore, boobs, and more.
Not only is it massive in length, it's also chock full of audio commentaries from some of the genre world's favorite fans. The list, which includes Grady Hendrix (Kaiju Shakedown, Horrorstör, My Best Friend's Exorcism, Subway Cinema, and more), Ted Geoghegan (We Are Still Here), Michael Gingold (Fangoria, Scream Magazine, and much more), and a ton of others. Honestly, I was amazed at the incredible three and a half hour runtime of Synapse's 42nd Steet Forever Blu-ray, but this one is on another level. I can't wait to see it.
For now the disc is available exclusively for pre-order from our friends at Diabolik DVD, and I would jump on that purchase because this will be a perfect replacement for that stupid yule log background at all of your holiday parties! Check out he full details below:
