TRAILER TREASURES: THE KINDRED (1987)

This one still eludes me. I remember this trailer fondly from my days haunting the old upstairs room at Metro Video in Sheffield, the walls lined with gaudy horror movies and cheap sci-fi in equally colourful boxes. You could get two rentals for a quid from that room, i.e. the mad old films that nobody else would watch.

The trailer for The Kindred was on the start of a bunch of horror flicks I rented from there, and it always looked either like utter genius or some weird fever-dream. The trailer is filled with mayhem, which of course will be spread out over the film, but as a snapshot of everything that made 80s horror so fun, it's ideal.

I feel a trip to ebay coming on.
