TRAILER TRASH at the Theatres at Mall of America

Screen shot 2013-05-01 at 7.12.25 PMMovie fans with a taste for the bizarre should scurry their posteriors over to the Theatres at Mall of America this Thursday.

That’s because the Theatres are presenting the self-proclaimed “Greatest Night Ever” for big fans of cult, exploitation and other cinematic oddities. For two shows, curator Chris Grap has assembled a collection of vintage movie trailers that run the gamut from sexploitation to karate films to really bad kiddie comedies. The theme seems to be “the more godawful, the better!” and, boy, if that nihilistic brand of thinking doesn’t get your blood pumping, check your pulse.

Grap was kind enough to provide me with a preview of the insanity (I only saw about 45 of the event’s purported 80 minutes), and although I have been sworn to secrecy about exactly which trailers will be included, I can report that there isn’t a single trailer that didn’t have me grinning ear to ear. Utilizing old 35mm trailers he found on eBay, Craigslist and (possibly) under a rock or two, what Grap managed to assemble is destined to provide anyone with a thirst for craptastic entertainment with the same giddy grin.

TRAILER TRASH plays twice on Thursday, May 9, with shows starting at 7:30 and 10:00 p.m. At a measly seven bucks per show, cult cinemaniacs can indulge in the awesomeness without worrying about breaking the bank.
