A horror film fanatic must see!!!
4 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last, best documentary style entertainment done during the height of Horror's popularity in the mid-eighties. Tons of actors, directors and makeup artists from the genre are candidly interviewed within, still in their prime, not the least of which are Cassandra Peterson (Elvira) and Robert Englund (Freddie Krueger)!!! This piece is informative, entertaining and nostalgic, full of clips from your favorite horror films as well as ones you've never seen before! This is a must see especially for anyone who was at this convention in 1986, who may very well see themselves!!! This video cassette comes packaged in a stunning box with Elvira herself in a rare pose on the front cover. Hard to find. Not on DVD yet. Highly recommend getting one if you can!!!
