Blu-ray Review: Despite Interesting Intentions, ‘Chillerama’ Misses Target

12 December 2011 12:28 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I was So with “Chillerama” when it started. The concept is right in my wheelhouse as I’ve long been a fan of B-movies, having been raised on the works of Roger Corman, Troma, and the writing of Joe Bob Briggs. If “Chillerama” can’t appease me, it’s unlikely to work for anyone. Bad news. Despite its best intentions and clever foundation, the execution here is just off, resulting in a hit-and-miss film that does way too much of the latter half of that equation.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.0/5.0

Much like “Grindhouse” was an ode to an era of bygone cinema, “Chillerama” attempts to recreate that anything-goes mentality that resulted in some truly over-the-top cult classics by using more than one style and more than one filmmaker to make an anthology of B-movie lunacy. The movie opens with a guy digging up the corpse of his wife and preparing to »

New Release: Chillerama DVD and Blu-ray

14 October 2011 1:01 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Release Date: Nov. 29, 2011

Price: DVD $27.97, Blu-ray $29.97

Studio: Image Entertainment

The 2011 horror anthology film Chillerama features four short movies by genre filmmakers Adam Rifkin (The Dark Backward), Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs), Adam Green (Frozen) and Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2).

In the spirit of such classic “omnibus” films as Dead of Night, Tales From the Crypt and Creepshow, Chillerama offers four vignettes that celebrate the golden age of B horror schlock.

Chillerama’s wraparound story involves the closing night of the last drive-in theater in America. The theater’s owner (Richard Riehle, Bridesmaids) “celebrates” the closing by scheduling the ultimate marathon of lost horror films — four of them — to be shown publicly for the first time. The quartet includes “The Diary of Anne Frankenstein” directed by Green, “Wadzilla,” directed by Rifkin, “I Was a Teenage Werebear”  helmed by Sullivan and “Zom-b-Movie” by Lynch.
