Vintage Trailer of the Day: Stunt Rock (1980)

Few trailers are as iconic as this one – its infamy coming from playing at every single Butt-Numb-a-Thon. Then again, few trailers speak so loudly for themselves.

You’ll be compelled over the edge of sight and sound as these crazed men play hard rock, let their on-stage magician blow things up, and fly the farthest flights. Whether the movie itself is any good is up for debate, but the trailer for Stunt Rock is certainly a pool of adrenaline created by Brian Trenchard-Smith‘s insanity pouring right out of his skull.

Seriously, just watch the damned thing. It’s genius shoved into a Marshall stack, lit on fire, and shoved off a cliff.
