About this item

The salacious and uproarious "American Grindhouse" explores the hidden history of the exploitation film, those popular purveyors of cheap sex and violence. It emerged from the tents of carnie sideshows into features like "Freaks", and mutated from there to change with the times. There were the rebellious teen flicks and "Nudie Cuties" of the Eisenhower 50s, bloody gore-fests and drug movies of the turbulent 60s, and the Blaxploitation boom in the 70s, echoing the Black Power movement. "American Grindhouse" takes a fascinating look at the films, filmmakers, shysters, and hustlers who made it all happen. Narrated by Academy Award(R) winner Robert Forster, and boasting exclusive interviews with filmmakers, actors and critics Herschell Gordon Lewis, Joe Dante, Larry Cohen, John Landis, Fred Williamson, Kim Morgan and many more, and featuring over 200 clips from some of the most outrageous movies ever made, "American Grindhouse" is the most comprehensive documentary ever made on these masterpieces of the lowbrow. "Nightmares in Red, White and Blue" is a comprehensive history of the American horror film that aims right for the jugular. Starting with Thomas Edison's version of "Frankenstein" and slashing its way through to "Saw" and beyond, this incisive documentary examines how these monstrous creations were gruesome reflections of their time. "Nightmares" charts the genre's shift from atomic age anxieties ("Them") and Vietnam-era violence ("Night of the Living Dead") all the way to post-9/11 xenophobia ("Hostel"), with stops at the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and Camp Crystal Lake in between. Director Andrew Monument also explores the rebellious appeal of the outsider, starting with silent star Lon Chaney and later epitomized in Hannibal Lecter's idiosyncratic pursuit of individual liberties. With commentary from horror luminaries including Roger Corman, Joe Dante, John Carpenter, Larry Cohen, and George Romero, and featuring clips from more than 150 movies spanning over 100 years, "Nightmares" is a bloody master class on one of America's most enduring and revealing art forms.

"American Grindhouse": Over 2 hours of hilarious outtakes, classic grindhouse trailers and long lost, never-before-seen interviews rescued from the vaults and included here for the first time ever; "Nightmares in Red, White and Blue": Commentary from horror luminaries including Roger Corman, Joe Dante, John Carpenter, Larry Cohen, and George Romero, and featuring clips from more than 150 movies spanning over 100 years.
