|42nd Street Forever: The Blu-ray Edition (2012)|
Featuring plenty of wild films from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, 42nd Street Forever is a lesson in cult cinema even for the most well-versed member of its audience. The sexploitation films on display from the 60s were certainly an eye-opener for me, because many appear to be downright insane, and that makes them plenty-worth searching out in my eyes. Titles like Helga and I, A Woman have a sleazy atmosphere to them that holds promise for a great deal of fun. Some other horror-related titles that seem totally random in this collection, such as The Evictors, are movies that will stay in my mind for my future Halloween movie marathons. I was also reminded to check out The Undertaker and his Pals, which has been on my radar forever but the trailer featured on this disc looks bonkers enough that I feel it deserves to be rushed up my queue. Aside from the awesome recommendations and reminders, there are numerous films which I had seen before but had never witnessed their original trailers. Getting to see The Deadly Spawn, Welcome Home Brother Charles, and They Call Her One Eye, all mixed together in such a wild menagerie of cinematic oddities, is a different sort of pleasure than just gathering information on the new and exotic (to me) titles that are packed on this disc.
