Certainly does! It's showing at FrightFest this year so if can go, you should check it out there. I'll probably be going to see it. The artwork alone is incredible.

Surprisingly, I probably won't be getting this. I think I've had my fill of the 'nasties' - I've read and watched documentaries and pretty much know all I need to know. I'm more interested in collecting the actual films than watching documentaries about them. A DVD full of old trailers really doesn't appeal to me, but the documentary looks interesting, so I may rent that disc.

But hey, that's just my opinion. For those with an ongoing interest this is probably an essential addition and I would certainly encourage those with such an interest to pick this up.

Since I don't like watching trailers, I won't be getting this ... what I would get, though, is a 75 disc set containing all video nasties (uncut for the first time ) and bonus features on Blu-ray ... that would be unbelievably awesome

I see your point Daemonia and for me the doc is the main selling point too, as I also have had my fill of 'the nasties' .
I see this as a good way to end of my collection / interest in these films once and for all.
Not as essential a buy for me as I first thought , as im not a big trailer fan and my interest was solely with the doc , but good for new fans and those with a passing nostalgic interest.

I totally understand that, Vips. I may well end up getting it anyway. I just wonder how many more 'definitive' guides on DVD, books etc there has to be before the well truly runs dry. Still, as you say, for a trip down the nostalgic memory lane I suppose it ain't a bad way to do it.

I imagine Nucleus will have to sell a ton of these to cover the costs of licensing all the trailers from all the numerous rights holders. Or don't trailers have to be licensed..? I don't know, which is why I ask the question. And were these trailers sourced from proper film sources or from old VHS tapes?

Sorry....you've been waiting 25 years for a DVD of trailers..? Fair play to you, you're a patient man.

The documentary might be an interesting watch.

No interest in DVD's full of trailers. I think that idea's been done to death.

This isn't just a DVD set of trailers. Each trailer has an introduction from either a journalist or an academic of some sort, each offering their unique insight into each movie and why it may have fallen foul of the dreaded DPP.

But there's more - each of these introductions is chock-full of interesting facts and trivia plus rare archival trade ads and video art etc. We've really done one hell of a lot of work putting this lot together.

And then there's the documentary, where we have brand new information from the DPP's archives that none of you will have ever been aware of

I reckon the total running time will be somewhere between 3 and 4 hours, possibly even more.

Awesome cover art, btw ... can you give us information on the packaging. Amaray or maybe a neat digipak?
