Editorial Reviews

WELCOME TO THE ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE CINEMA, the most awesome post-modern hot spot for exploitation movie revival, deep in the heart of Texas! Home to world-famous events such as The Quentin Tarantino Film Fest, Fantastic Fest and Butt-Numb-A-Thon, the Alamo is one of the last places on earth where you can still see grindhouse classics such as THE DEVIL WITHIN HER and MAD MONKEY KUNG FU. Now, the Alamo has opened their vaults for a peek at some of the most outrageous cinematic gems from several golden ages of sleaze cinema. Digitally re-mastered in high-definition from the actual reels that show every week at the Alamo, this exciting edition of the 42ND STREET FOREVER series is the most bizarre, the most terrifying and the most hilarious one yet! FEATURING TRAILERS FROM: A LIFE OF NINJA - STING OF THE DRAGON MASTERS - THE BODYGUARD (CHIBA) - MAD MONKEY KUNG-FU - WONDER WOMEN - LUCKY SEVEN - THE SHARK HUNTER - BIRDS DO IT, BEES DO IT - LET S DO IT - CHATTERBOX - DANISH LOVE ACTS - GROUP MARRIAGE - VIOLATED - CAGED VIRGINS - MESSAGE FROM SPACE - THE TERRORNAUTS - MIND WARP - ZEBRA FORCE - BLAZING BATTLE - INTERNATIONAL DIAMOND TRAP - MACHINE GUN MCCAIN - STACEY - LIGHTNING BOLT - MISSION THUNDERBOLT - 3 SUPERMEN IN THE WEST - PRETTY MAIDS ALL IN A ROW - PUTNEY SWOPE - REDNECK COUNTY - MOONRUNNERS - THE FABULOUS WORLD OF JULES VERNE - THE MAGIC CHRISTMAS TREE - PINOCCHIO S BIRTHDAY PARTY - THE MAGIC OF THE KITE - THE SECRET OF MAGIC ISLAND - KARZAN: MASTER OF THE JUNGLE - THE NORSEMAN - SORCERESS - TERROR IN THE WAX MUSEUM - THE MANSON MASSACRE - THE DEVIL WITHIN HER. . .

The first review here makes me realize how good we have it with the Alamo (actually Alamos; there's a bunch in town now). We've been watching random collections of clips just like this before most every showing of any movie since the original Alamo on 4th was crankin' in the '90s, and I've just always taken it for granted and assumed that every town has a rep theatre that does stuff like this.

I guess not! For that we can say thanks to the Alamo founders, Tim and Carrie League, and all the film freaks who put these things together. They done good, and continue to do it.

This collection really shows off the endless amount of cinematic cheese that has surfaced from the primordial b-movie auteur muck and then disappeared over the decades. And believe it, there's lots more stuff like this in the Alamo vaults! I've seen some reeeeally obscure stuff in the previews, and with luck there'll be another Alamo dvd (or three) in this series.

Sex! Murder!! Mayhem!!! Coming soon to a drive-in near you...

If you're new to this series, start with Volume 5. It's the most entertaining of all, and it will be the best gauge for you to decide if you'd like to expand your collection with volumes 1 through 4. Volume 1 is no slouch, but from the very beginning ("Chuck" Heston explaining the MPAA rating system while playing tennis) Volume 5 is pure entertainment.

Another bonus is that the trailers are clustered together by genre; so, for example, if you don't like the Kung fu trailers, you can just skip ahead a few chapters and you'll be on to new territory.

Synapse's 42nd St Forever trailer comps have always been insanely entertaining but I have to concur with the previous reviewer when he says this volume ups the ante. This is without a doubt the most "out there" of the series -- well, except for maybe the XXX one. I haven't even heard of half of these films (esp. the kung fu titles -- whoa, check out that underage face plant at the end of LUCKY SEVEN!) but I guarantee if you like this sort of thing, you won't be disappointed. I even enjoyed the commentary.

Remember The Alamo! Synapse Films has taken us on a journey to the past through their superb 42nd Street Forever collections, and this edition proves to be the best yet. Exploitation films tend to not get a lot of love from the more stuff shirt film historians. Said historians often brush them aside as cheap smut that has no artistic or cultural merit. I vehemently disagree, but this is a review of a product, not grounds for an academic debate.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema have proudly put their stamp on this DVD edition, but not just in name only. Many of these fantastic trailers are culled from the hallowed halls of AGFA (American Genre Film Archive), a non-profit storage and restoration house for 35mm cult films, some of which are available ONLY in that format. As such, some of the trailers on the DVD have poor quality, but I wouldn't say they "suffer" from it. If anything, the deterioration, discolorations, pops, fizzles, and crackles only add to the flavor and the experience.

Watching these trailers really does take you through a window of time, to an era FAR different than the film climate of today. Countless researchers, fans, buffs, and historians have expounded on that point in time, and with words and love that shame any attempt I could make to do the same. Simply put, these trailers are fascinating to watch. The sheer brashness, boldness, and indeed political incorrectness is a sight to behold. Having actually seen a few of the full-length movies whose trailers are compiled on here, it's worth noting that the marketing for films hasn't changed much for the last 50 or so years. Some of the movies would live up to the "promise" of the trailers, others would deviate in ways good, bad, and strange.
