Storyline

Joe Dante directs this story of the glamour, the glitter, the magical allure of Hollywood... and not a speck of it rubs off on Miracle Pictures, where "If it's a good picture, it's a Miracle." This is a hilarious tribute to the unsung heroes who grind out the B movies massacred by critics, but nursed fondly in the hearts of film fans everywhere. Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

classic b entertainment!
17 December 2001 | by (atlanta, ga) – See all my reviews

this is one of my all time favorite movies! in the days before the pc police turned the movie industry into a feminist wasteland there were people with little money who would cull the film archives and throw in a little t & a and with shame thrown to the wind release movies that were just plain goofy fun-with a little sex in it-this was the masterpiece of that style of filmmaking-it's fun to see over and over to test your b movie knowledge as you guess what flick was used in what scene. the great part is that some of the original parts of this film were used in later films like the remake of 'not of this earth'. find this and enjoy!
