I have a sort of bad movie spider sense, but this time my super powers totally rickroll'd me.

Parts of this anthology movie are absolutely brilliant.  Unfortunately, the brilliant parts are smothered by loads of sexual jokes and toilet humor.  I laughed some, I cried some, I rolled my eyes a lot.

That sounds absolutely painful.  Thanks for posting the review; I now know what to avoid.

The only segment that I hated in Chillerama was the "I Was a Teenage Werebear" one. I swear that I thought my head would explode a la Scanners trying to make it through that piece of cinematic excrement.

I saw this at Wally World (Wal*Mart for the uniformed) and thought that the asking price was too high.  I think it was $15.00 or close to that.  So I said I will pass.  I am sad that I passed it up.  Sounds like a fun film for a brain dead night.

Thanks Andy for taking the brunt of the torture on this one  Cheers.

I will keep an eye on Ebay to see if I can get it cheaper.

Later,

John

Take some Advil Torgo, this could help with the pain from the explosion.  Then wrap your head in a cool towel.   BounceGiggle

Unfortunately, not many laughts for Andrew from watching the film, but many laughs for the rest of us from reading another fine review.

Is it the Hitler segment that raised this from "0 skulls" to "1 slime?" For even by the standards of this website, this does sound, just from the review, like a particularly dreadful film. Almost a certain candidate for the worst film ever made.

As for the sexual humor . . . taking a number of classes on theater, while in college, I do remember from the classes, that sexual humor was regarded as being the lowest form of humor there was. But, there are some people that can do it, and there are some people that can't. Shakespeare could. The late British director/screenwriter Ken Russell could. But, obviously, the people who made this film can't.

I picked this up myself a while ago, thinking it looked a lot better than it tuned out to be. 

I'm with Andrew.  There are some really good ideas stuck in a big sea of $#@#!!

Wadzilla was just a complete waste of film. 

I was a Teeange Werebear actually had a funny idea, and had they played this idea totally straight (no pun intended) it could have been fun. 

The Diary of Anne Frankenstein isn't great but it does entertain.  The monster itself was nicely designed and the cast wasn't as much of an embarrassment as the rest of the film.  Besides, who can turn down the idea of Hitler making Frankenstein's monster?  I would have been a bit nice to actually see more of Anne Frank though.  It seems she was just included to give the movie its pun of a title. 

Deathication is so over the top it's almost impossible to criticize, and thankfully it's only shown for a few seconds. 

And of course the zombie thing that ties it all together.  Very basic B-movie material, not outstanding in anyway, but it's not too shabby either. 

Still, overall, it's fairly horrible stuff.

There are two parts in that segment that made me laugh out loud.  The first is when the Nazi being thrashed by the monster switches between actor, dummy, and then completely different actor (different race).  The second is after Hitler flees the laboratory and locks the monster inside.  After pounding on the door to no avail, the monster walks toward the camera, around the end of the set, and then back into the room with Hitler.  It's a cheap gimmick, but it turned out to work beautifully.
