SYNOPSIS:

A pair of fake drive-in movie trailers created by director Andrew Buckner, “Faux Drive-In Trailers: ‘Poolasaurus!/ ‘Wrath of the Seagulls’ ” is a one-minute and thirty-four second project that plays like an old-fashioned ad for a double bill of imaginary black and white films. The fun, campy and funny work proclaims that both features will be released in drive-ins during “Summer, 1957”.
