"You will love this release!" – zombiesdontrun.

"Stephen Romano Presents: Shock Festival goes above and beyond the call for a trailer compilation, with care taken in presenting the best quality 35mm trailers around. You'll see many of your favorites, and many from movies you've never heard of - about the only thing you won't see are a ton of chop-socky trailers, there are some, but not many. In all, you get about 150 horror and exploitation trailers and TV spots, not to mention over 300 radio spots in MP3 format ("Black Caesar - he comes to bury YOU!"). In depth, thoughtful commentary tracks, a low MSRP, and more additional goodies than you can shake a severed limb at mean - as far as trailer collections go - that Romano's earned the highly coveted DVD Talk Collector Series rating. Way to go, ghoul!" –
