Welcome to the first in a new series for Diary of A Genre Addict- TRAILER TREASURES! The trailer is an art form in itself, and I'd like to start bringing you some brilliant examples for your delectation. These trailers will be from all corners of genre cinema, and I'm gonna get the ball rolling with the fake trailers created for the GRINDHOUSE project from Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino a few years back.
These trailers, made by Rodriguez along with Edgar Wright, Eli Roth and Rob Zombie were quite brilliant in both their loyalty to the Grindhouse style and their pastiche of it. There was also a trailer made by competition winners (Hobo With a SHotgun). My favourite is Edgar Wright's 'DON'T!', which perfectly captures the deliciously daft films of the era it evokes, complete with jump cuts and shocked reactions (not to mention a cast that are clearly having a blast). Check these trailers out and enjoy once again.
