Trivia

Filmed in the Tottenville neighborhood of southern Staten Island inside and around a dilapidated flop-house hotel which Andy Milligan owned at the time. The house, which sits between Tottenville's Main Street and the southern end of Ellis Street at the very southern end of the Staten Island Railway, is now an Italian themed restaurant called 'Angelina's' See more »

Pretty Fun
16 August 2002 | by (hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

I could order Milligan's celebrated The Ghastly Ones over the internet for twenty dollars. Or, I could find his hated and chopped up remake, Legacy of Horror, in the bargain bin for two dollars. The latter worked for me, and while it made me badly want to see the original, I still enjoyed Legacy of Horror.

It's got some of Milligan's outrageously gay acting characters. Almost all the characters are pretty flamboyant making the production come off as a bit silly, but over-the-top is how it's meant to be. The story is strong, even if some of the sub-plots go nowhere. I'd have loved it if it were not so obviously missing spots of gore. I'm surprised that something released by Gorgon video would be ever censored.
