Two entertaining-as-hell documentaries in one handy dandy set.
"Nightmares in Red, White & Blue" traces the history of American horror films from the silent era to the present day, while "American Grindhouse" explores the seamy world of the low budget, violent-n-sexy independent films (and the run-down, inner city theaters which played them) whose hey day lasted from the '30s through the 70s.
Both docs were packed with tons of clips from classic and not-so-classic films (lots of gore and boobies!!) and comments from genre film luminaries like Larry 'It's Alive' Cohen, William 'Maniac Cop' Lustig, John 'Halloween' Carpenter, Joe 'Gremlins' Dante, Roger Corman, and many more.
"B" movie fans will have a blast with both of these docs, either by re-living memories of films they'd long forgotten about, or by saying "Wow, that flick looks awesome! I gotta see that!!"
