Have you ever bought a movie for a buck, watched it in disgust for an hour and a half (by God, I paid for it I'm gonna watch it!), removed the DVD from your player immediately afterward and threw it in the garbage so that all traces it ever existed would be gone? If you've never had such a reaction to a "film", you haven't seen Reel Horror.
I love bad cinema- I scour the bargain bins and half-price bookstores looking for those forgotten gems (usually horror or science fiction) that are a tribute to low budgets, lousy acting, cheesy special effects, unbelievable plots, and terrible scripts. Then a movie like Reel Horror comes along and gives all those things I love a bad name.
This "film" takes a bunch of low budget horror movies, hacks them into little pieces so that none if the original "badness" of those films is allowed to shine through, and throws them randomly them into a middle school-quality production about a haunted movie studio. This is presented as high camp and uproariously bad, in a "Rocky Horror Picture Show" vein , complete with a bunch of idiots dancing at the end.
Trust me when I tell you it's almost enough to discourage me from investing my hard earned dollar the next time I run across a potential classic, but I'm going to fight through it. Don't put yourself in this position. Avoid the temptation and put down that copy of Reel Horror.
