Trailer Trash

In this new feature on the site, I'll be periodically posting various oddballs trailers from the far reaches of cinema obscurity. So, without any further ado, let's check out some "coming attractions"!

Stunt Rock (1978):

This mind-melting slab of Australian lunacy pairs footage of wild stuntman Grant Page with performances by goofy 70's rockers/magicians Sorcery! Directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith of Turkey Shoot, Dead End Drive-in and Leprechaun 4: In Space fame.



Frankenstein General Hospital (1988):

Oh boy, this looks ridiculous. A forgotten straight-to-video comedy featuring a respectable cast of recognizable character actors including lovable lug Irwin Keyes, Mark Blankfield, Leslie Jordan and even Ben Stein. There's a part of me that wants to check this out, while another part of me screams "What the fuck is wrong with you?!".



Night of the Dribbler (1990):

Jesus Christ, where did this come from?! An absurd high school slasher flick/goofball comedy about a basketball team that's stalked by a killer with a basketball for a head. And that "rap" song in the trailer... what the fuck were they thinking?!



Alright, that's all for now. Look for future installments of Trailer Trash in the upcoming days.

If you have any suggestions for a ridiculous, cool, absurd, perplexing or just generally Junk Food-y trailers, send 'em my way.

  1. I own the 2 DVD special edition of stunt rock. It belongs on an episode of JFD. It mostly delivers.

  3. I've been wanting to Stunt Rock on the show for a long time. Mostly so that I have an excuse to play something from the Regret album.

  4. I think you've got the next episode right here. Not sure about a theme though, bodily harm perhaps?
