Mad Ron‘s Prevues From Hell, the landmark blood-and-guts compilation featuring coming attractions from some 47 classic “grindhouse” horror flicks, is finally being unleashed onto DVD!
Made in 1987 at the height of the VHS boom, when anyone and everyone was popping anything and everything into their VCRs in search of ever-more twisted thrills and chills, Mad Ron‘s Prevues From Hell was a new kind of animal: an ambitiously researched and compiled anthology of trailers hyping cult grindhouse and drive-in theater favorites where the blood, guts and gore take center stage. Adding a colorful and campy element to the proceedings is the wraparound storyline, which concerns a loopy ventriloquist (Nick Pawlow) and his ghoulish dummy “Happy”, who are sitting in a run-down movie theater as demented projectionist “Mad Ron” (Ron Roccia) unspools one trailer after another featuring an unimaginable compendium of graphic guts and gore from the most notorious films of the Sixties and Seventies. As the ventriloquist and his dummy serve up a slew of silly remarks and off-color jokes, a cadre of blood-thirsty zombies and otherworldly creatures feast upon human body parts in other sections of the theater. Mmmmm….pass the Raisinettes!!!
A highly collectible piece in its VHS incarnation and long in-demand on DVD, Mad Ron‘s Prevues From Hell features trailers from such carnivorous cult picks as Africa: Blood and Guts (1966), Ilsa: She Wolf of The S.S. (1975), Three on a Meathook (1972) and Wes Craven’s Last House on the Left (1972), as well as such breakthrough audience favorites as George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead (1968), Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), Mario Bava’s Carnage (1971), and the most horrifying trailer of all time, I Drink Your Blood (1970). A complete list of all 47 films represented in Mad Ron‘s Prevues From Hell can be found below.
Directed by Jim Monaco, produced by Ron “Mad Ron” Roccia and James F. Murray Jr., and executive produced by Joe Amodei and Mike Meister, Mad Ron‘s Prevues From Hell also features some of the earliest make-up effects work by Jordu Schell (Avatar, The Mist, 300) and Jay Kushwara (TV’s “Monsters” and “Millennium”).
Incredibly entertaining extras include: deleted scenes, hilarious bloopers, movie poster gallery on all featured trailers, behind-the-scenes video/photo gallery, and more!
