Starting Monday, toh! is proud to broaden your horizons by offering three Trailers from Hell a week for your viewing pleasure. Filmmaker Joe Dante and his partner Elizabeth Stanley have been nurturing this site for a few years now and have built up a sizable collection of trailers complete with voice-over narration. Erudite film fan and collector Dante of "Gremlins" fame often contributes himself, and pulls in other filmmakers such as Allan Arkush and John Badham and screenwriters such as Josh Olson and Larry Karaszewski to provide their commentary. It works!

Check out the site as well as their YouTube channel. Brand new on the site today is Brian Trenchard-Smith on "Daughters of Darkness":

Belgian director Harry Kumel’s most accessible film is a measured, erotic Euro horror about “The Blood Countess” Elizabeth Bathory, a Hungarian serial killer who legendarily tortured hundreds of young girls and bathed in virgins’ blood to stay eternally young. The Dietrich-like Delphine Seyrig channels her performance in Last Year at Marienbad in the similarly dreamlike setting of the Grand Hotel des Thermes. The memorable music score is by Robert Enrico regular Francois de Roubaix.
