Good picture quality, great variety of trailers and excellent commentary provided by Romano.

I picked up Stephen Romano's book Shock Festival when it came out at my local comic book shop and enjoyed it immensely, so when I found out a DVD version was coming out I was anxious to pick it up. I have to say this DVD companion did not disappoint.
The 3 discs (two DVDs and a CD full of mp3s of radio spots and music) are a lot of fun and provide quite a bit of entertainment. Much like the 42nd Street Forever series of trailer compilations this set is an excellent sampler of exploitation films that have led to me finding a lot of hidden gems for my Netflix queue. Like the 42nd street volumes, the trailers on Shock Festival are a mixed bag of different exploitation fare; action, horror, martial arts, and some stuff that simply indescribable. Shock Festival is a must-have for fans of exploitation movies and its the perfect sort of DVD to have playing at a Halloween Party ot watch with a group of pals to goof on.

This trailer set gives you real bang for your buck, it's camp, trashy and gross, everything you'd want in a trailer compilation and the MP3 disc is a total knockout.
My only complaint was that the DVD discs had scratches on them but both played fine (I must have a good player) hence the four stars instead of five..
So don't sit there thinking is it worth it, get this in your collection before it's deleted, boy am I glad I purchased this gem, it fits perfectly along side the 42nd Street Forever collection.
Don't dream it, buy it, Now.

I had been looking forward to this dvd set since it was first announced. I loved the Shock Festival book, and when I found out the author would be releasing fake trailers along with a real trailer compilation, I pre-ordered it immediately.

The real problem with this set is the fake trailers. I can't understand how someone who really seemed to have a grasp on what made this concept great missed the mark so badly on the execution of the trailers. There were a couple decent ones, but overall they were pretty lame.

First, what is the point of having the concept of old, beat up grindhouse trailers, if you are going to destroy the illusion by having actors sporting modern clothes, hairstyles, piercings, etc? especially when you overdo the "scratch" and "Splice" effects to make it look old? A major problem was the voiceover sound. Talking in a deep voice on a tinny mic doesn't cut it - It sounded like it was done on a computer, which really killed it for me.

I watched this set with a buddy, and we both had the same thought - did these guys even watch any real trailers beforehand to get an idea of how they should be done? Probably not.

If they were done by different directors, kudos to the crew that made the Devils Sister trailer - that is the level they should all have been done at.

Ironically, there is a "hidden" trailer on disc 1 that is a fake coming attraction reel from the 1940's or so that shows more wit and talent than the entire set of fake trailers made for this disc. Way to show yourself up.

As for the trailer compilations, those were okay, but there were more than a few repeated from the far superior 42nd Street Forever series.

I am a big fan of the 42nd Street Forever series. I have all 5 volumes but they have not been making anymore for over a year now so I saw the DVD advertisement for the Shock Festival. I ordered it and received it about 2 weeks later via UPS. This puppy has 3 dvd's chock full of grindhouse goodness! The first two dvd's have tons of trailers covering sci-fi,horror,and soft core porn. The third disc is full of mp3's of radio clips from many of the trailers of yesteryear. Stephen Romano's commentary is fasinating but it's not a scene specific commentary. If you are a fan of the 42nd Street series like I am but are maybe afraid that this dvd is more of the same trailers, well your in luck because these are all different trailers!! I highly recommend this dvd and it's alot of fun to watch with some snacks,beers and buddies!!

This is pretty simple, its all about the grindhouse trailers. You get major bang for your buck. You get about 7 hrs of all sorts of trailers. Not only that you will love the fake trailers that were made especially for this dvd. And one of the coolest features is the 350some mp3 radio spots. I could not believe some of the obscure movies that was drudge up. So just microwave some popcorn and sit back and relax.
