An obsessive attempt to document results of NTSC formatted VHS and laserdisc releases that contain "coming attractions"
(i.e. trailers, teasers, TV spots, video spots, promos) which may or may not prove significant.
Basically, an effort to create a "trailer search" resource.

It could just be me, but like with Hiding Out, my VHS of Date With an Angel doesn't have any trailers either. It just goes straight to the film and that's it.

UPDATE: As it turns out, my copies of Date With an Angel and Hiding Out are reprints. My copy of Hiding Out is from 1989, as indicated on the end label and DWAA is from 1993, also as indicated on the end label.

At the beginning of Shocker, there's also an advertisement for Universal Studios Florida.
