If you dig B-movies, you may want to hop over to Trailers from Hell, a fun website that celebrates the trailers for these low-budget films.
John Landis, Eli Roth, Guillermo del Toro, Neil Labute and Edgar Wright are just a few of the celebrated filmmakers who provide commentary for these classic film previews.
This week Trailers from Hell celebrates its 700th installment with a look at Roger Corman’s She Gods of Shark Reef (1958). Corman himself narrates the clip, noting the flick only took two weeks to shoot, and some of the shark footage is taken from other films:
The website has put together an impressive Corman playlist that includes trailers/commentary for Bloody Mama, The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, Boxcar Bertha, Little Shop of Horrors and many more.
For a more detailed look at the director, note that the excellent documentary Corman’s World arrives on DVD March 27.
