Mad Ron's Prevues From Hell - Review - @BrandonCSites

Mad Ron's Prevues From Hell (1987) *1/2
D: Jim Monaco
C: Ron Roccia, Nick Pawlow
P: A projectionist at a theater shows off an assortment of horror movie trailers to some flesh eating, blood thirsty zombies. 

Unsuccessful attempt at making a feature length film centered around a collection of theatrical trailers and a wraparound segment. At first there is a cohesion in theme and spirit involving the selection of the trailers and their placement. 

As the film goes on, it eventually becomes disjointed and erratic as the trailers fail to tell an overall story or fail to send an overall message. As for the wraparound segment, in terms of pacing - it lacks movement. It lacks fluidity. It's all rather stiff and lubersome. Mad Ron's Prevues From Hell is made with good intentions and a big old bloody heart. Clearly the people behind this have a love, an affection, for all things horror. Mad Ron's Prevues From Hell certainly gets an A for effort, but flunks out in terms of telling a logical story through its chosen medium. [Not Rated] 82 mins.
