Classic Sci-Fi Trailers, Vol. 3 (Sinister Cinema). [Category: Commercial]

Still more science fiction movie trailers from the 50s and 60s. This tape contains a lot of trailers from particularly campy movies, so lovers of cheese should enjoy it. Ends with a bang with the trailer from 2001: A Space Odyssey.


  • Did you know that Them! is an acronym for Terror, Horror, Excitement, and Mystery?
  • The trailer for The Giant Claw actually shows the monster! What were they thinking? (And if you've never seen this, the single most ridiculous-looking monster in screen history, you are sorely deprived and need this tape!)
  • The Brain Eaters will "burst your blood vessels with suspense"! And if that's not enough, see Attack of the Giant Leeches, where "fear will pierce your flesh"!
  • Journey to the Center of the Earth stars Pat Boone and Gertrude the Duck! See their journey through the Mammoth Mushroom Forest!
  • The Hideous Sun Demon breaks into the lab of "Atomic Research, Inc." Gee, I wonder what that company's business is?
  • Gorgo is as "incredibly realistic" and "shockingly convincing" as Robot Monster.
  • Gimmick Alert! Mysterious Island is filmed in Superdynamation!
  • Msties, take note: contains the trailers for Revenge of the Creature, This Island Earth, The Crawling Eye, I Was a Teenage Werewolf, The Unearthly, Attack of the Giant Leeches, Gorgo, The Horror of Party Beach, and Thunderbirds Are Go.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
