What is your favorite fake trailer out of the four?


#2

I love the whole concept of the Werewolf Woman Of The SS, and judging by what I saw at the end of the Thanksgiving trailer it looks like A Clockwork Orange trailer with the classical music and other british crime/drama films with scifi and horror so maybe thats what he was going for and btw for you who don’t know Fu Manchu usually was this asian boss with a squirrely mustache like Nick Cage has in the trailer.



ps: Rob Zombie is a huge clockwork orange fan.

Eh. As far as style of the trailer goes, I saw more similarities for A BOY AND HIS DOG.

wow yeah totally

Even though A Dog And His Boy came out in 1975 and A Clockwork Orange came out in 1971 :slight_smile:

I havent seen all the trailers yet but I have A strong feeling that Thanksgiving will be my favorite cause im such a fan of those 80’s horror movies and thanksgiving was the one holiday they didnt have. And everything in the trailer has 80’s all over it. I think thanksgiving was mainly influenced by My Bloody Valentine


#7

Ya know, I gotta say Werewolf Women of the SS isnt Grindhouse enough for me. Its too new music video looking. I love the concept but it didnt look like I wanted it to. Even Fu Manchu doesnt look like Fu Manchu. It looks like Nic Cage with a beard. Eli and Edgar’s look more like actual old 70s/80s Grindhouse movies to me.



My fave trailer is def Thanksgiving.

I dunno. Still gotta see the whole thing to judge it.



I highly respect the concept because I thought we would never, EVER, see a send-up of nazisploitation again (Let alone, a brief spoof of it for a faux trailer)



And unlike this poster,





WEREWOLF/SS actually has monsters in it! ;D

I am really looking forward to seeing the whole Werewolf/SS trailer

I knw exactly what you mean… Thats the same way I feel… Nicholas Cage was a bad choice for Fu Manchu IMO, I dont knw why everyone one got excited when they heard hes playin the role… I really was looking forward for WWofSS the most but from what I saw it didnt live up to my expectations… Hope when I see the whole thing in theatres Id change my mind… They Call Him Machete is the coolest, the scene with Machete and the guys wife and daughter is the bomb…


#11

I thought that Nic Cage was going to be in make up to look like the old Chinese guy. Instead it looks like a Rob Zombie music video with Nic Cage wearing a beard.



I have to see the whole thing on the big screen, but from what I saw, it let me down. :frowning:


#12

I really dont think you can come up with an opinion of which trailer is the coolest… Every trailer is unique in its own way… I wanna say Machete but then I remember the impalment scene in Thanksgiving and change my mind, then I remember the kid holding the knife which is hilarious so I feel like sayin Don’t, but then I remember Trejo in the waterfall with the wife and daughter and the cycle goes on… Do you feel what Im tryin to say?


#13

Discuss…



I picked Don’t. Ever since the movie, it’s became an easy inside joke…

#14

Machete!



I like the line about bad guys, can’t remember how it went…but it was something like: He kills the bad guys and you better hope you’re not the bad guy!


#15

My faves in order:



Thanksgiving (the best take on real 80s slasher film trailers)

Dont (2nd best take on the 70s style British horror trailers)

Machete (A fun trailer but looked too much like a modern made for cable film)

Werewolf Women of The SS (I thought Id love this one the most but I found it lacking in all areas, and it didnt look like a genuine 70s Grindhouse trailer. It looked too MTV for me. Dr Fu Manchu is supposed to look Asian, not like Nic Cage with a paste on beard).

I really didn’t like Werewolf Women also(considering the director is Zombie), but it had the perfect stunt casting of Nicolas Cage as Dr. Fu Manchu
