  • Severin Films Brings “DOCTOR BUTCHER MD” to Blu-ray!

    ,

However, some people, such as the fantastic folks over at Severin Films, are going the extra mile to preserve the most shocking grindhouse titles possible, and now, they’re bringing a VHS classic chiller to disc for the first time: DOCTOR BUTCHER, MD!

    The art of the trailer has certainly been lost over the years, as the need to sell a film often leads to showing more and more crucial footage, spoiling surprises, or even worse: cutting something to look as generic as possible.

So for this week’s edition of Found Footage… For Real, we’ve dug up three vintage horror teasers to show the new generation of trailer cutters how it’s really done.
