Missing Reel is a documentary-style series that examines the rich history and legacy of the Grindhouse era of motion pictures (1966-1985). Each episode profiles one specific genre of film - from Blaxploitation to Summer Camp Slashers - and traces its origins, its highlights, and the people who crafted the movies themselves. At the core of each story are the dynamic, often puzzling, but always captivating trailers for some of the most bizarre and shocking movies ever made. How did Bill Cosby change the face of American cinema? How did the undead go from voodoo puppets to brain-eating nightmares? Which classically trained stage actor went from black vampire to the King of Cartoons? The answers await in every episode of Missing Reel.

"Nature Gone Wild"

The most primal fears of man are realized as the animal inhbitants of the planet take the upper-hand in film after film. From giant insects, rats, and rabbits to some pretty pissed off birds and bears - the fur and feathers fly as Missing Reel takes a cringing look at Nature Gone Wild.
