As the Silver Screen team giddily jumped on board the exploitation movie craze of the ’70s and ’80s, the movie house churned out film after film, most of them very poor facsimiles of other, better films, nearly all of them avoided and derided by both the public and the critical sectors. (Never heard of it? You’re not alone.)

    And then it was all gone. Every single Silver Screen print and negative was destroyed in a 1984 fire — talk about too hot for the screen — eradicating the legacy of a brand that most people have absolutely zero knowledge of ever having existed. But even Silver Screen, seemingly always destined to exist in wacky obscurity, couldn’t be kept totally down, and the surprise 2013 discovery of a treasure trove of seemingly lost trailers changed its fortunes forever."

    Kinda kills the vibe when the 'archival clips' look sooooo digital.
