Here's the trailer for John Landis' first film, SCHLOCK. Nearly 40 years after I first read of it on FAMOUS MONSTERS, I finally caught it online last week and found it quite well done for a low-budget first effort. Easily the best part is Landis himself as the monster, mugging wonderfully in early Rick Baker make-up. Many of the gags are genuinely funny, there's an amusing cameo from FM's FJA and the direction is most definitely a cut above that of similar efforts of the era.
