Trailers From Hell welcomes all movies great and small but sometimes a particular trailer may not be up to the visual quality of the rest of our catalog or is simply too oddball to present in our usual format. Nevertheless, there’s such a wealth of exciting, strange and unusual films out there, we’d be remiss not to call attention to them. We’re happy to present the TFH Misfits.
Directed by the legendarily speedy director, William (One-Shot) Beaudine, 1966’s Billy the Kid Vs Dracula and Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter were almost certainly pre-manufactured by producer Carroll Case as a double-bill to appeal to both horror and cowboy fans.
Each film featured much the same crew, including cinematographer Lothrop B. Worth (I Was a Teenage Frankenstein and TV’s I Dream of Jeannie), and so share the same rushed, low rent vibe. As usual, the one true star to be found here, John Carradine, gives it the old college try.
