TV on DVD: Cult back stories, trailers

TRAILERS FROM HELL, VOL. 2

Web fave Cult and classic movies are smartly teased by noted directors/writers, who tip us to key influences and back story while the films' trailers unreel. In this second collection of online shorts (21 titles), Joe Dante does "Donovan's Brain," Mick Garris eyes "Flesh Gordon," Josh Olson chews on "Jaws," Roger Corman recounts "Ski Troop Attack," et al.

Extras Whoa! A biggie -- the first anamorphic widescreen transfer of Corman's immortal 1960 "The Little Shop of Horrors" featuring a young Jack Nicholson! Yep, the whole film!

List price $20, out Tuesday from Shout.
