Back to the '80s Again! continues at Trailers from Hell, with filmmaker Ti West introducing Jonathan Lynn's cult classic 'Clue,' starring Tim Curry, Christopher Lloyd and Eileen Brennan.

Before "Battleship" there was another movie based on a board game, and this one came with multiple endings, introducing the interactivity that has now become commonplace on the web after being pioneered in barely released features like "Goodbye Cruel World." Director Jonathan Lynn’s debut feature was not especially popular but it foreshadowed his run of popular 1990s comedies including "My Cousin Vinnie."
