“Chillerama” is an outrageous, perverted, comedic-gorefest and entertaining as hell!

It’s the final night at Cecil B. Kaufman’s drive-in theater, and to bid farewell, he is showing four schlocky midnight movies not to be forgotten. Little does he know that the final performance may be one that he and his audience will star in! The titles of the short films are: “Wadzilla”, “I Was A Teenage Werebear”, “The Diary of Anne Frankenstein”, and “Zom-B-Movie.”

None of the shorts are really “horror” per say. “Chillerama” is not to be taken seriously. It pays homage to the cheesy misunderstood films of the 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, and crosses the line a little further. It’s a tribute to underground film buffs, with many of the characters quoting obscure movie lines.

Three of the tales were big hits with me. I didn’t really care so much for “Werebear” but I understood the humor they were going for. It just doesn’t seem to fit with the rest, but doesn’t drag the film down too much.

So if you want to see lots of cheese, sleaze, zombies, Nazis, singing werewolfs, and giant killer sperm, this film is for you!

3.5 out of 4.0 stars.
