John Landis on

Schlock!/The Banana Monster

Released 1973
Distributor Jack H. Harris Enterprises

John Landis spills on what he thinks (not much) of the ridiculous reissue trailer for his first movie, Schlock! — which, as John has reminded us over and over on Trailers from Hell, has to be Great because it stars a guy (John!) in a (Rick Baker!) gorilla suit! Nuff said!
