Not even if you're an Elvira fan...
Perception_de_Ambiguity from The Divided States of Earth
16 January 2011
What can you expect from a mix-tape of the "best" scenes of a handful
of gore movies from the 60s and 70s, all presented in full screen,
naturally? A dreadfully dull time of uninspired schlock and I got
exactly what I bargained for, hosted by an early Elvira who visually
hasn't changed one bit in 27 years. One flick is worse than the next,
the clip show poses a warning never to bother seeking out any of the
featured films, their titles are: Blood Feast (1963), Two Thousand
Maniacs! (1964), The Astro-Zombies (1968), Carnival of Blood (1970),
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), Snuff (1976), Drive In Massacre
(1977), Dr. Jekyll's Dungeon of Death (1979), The Driller Killer
(1979), Fiend (1980). You expected more titles, didn't you? Now
consider that this thing runs for TWO FULL HOURS and Elvira's skits are
rather sparse, all in all she's around for maybe five minutes. Pretty
much all her jokes were a play on words, most of which weren't all too
amusing this time around. Usually the clip got interrupted by her so
she could throw in a five seconds joke, sometimes the connection
between joke and clip was a rather loose one.
Some of those flicks are very ungory AND dull so what are they doing in
this? Starting at 1/10 I'll give this 1 point for the little Elvira it
had and 1 point for the educational value it has in showing clips from
worthless films. That makes it 3. If this was 1983 and I was 13 years
old and the most extreme movie I have had ever seen was 'Poltergeist'
then this would have been chilling enough (5/10 maybe?) but those times
are over, I'm afraid.
