Weird Stuff Well Presented, 26 February 2004
Author: film_410 from California

I saw this with my boyfriend. A real freakshow! COol weird movies from the

vaults -- stuff I never knew exiosted. I especially liked VAMPIRA. What a sexy beast! 10 plus - a movie you have to see it to believe it. There are movies in here with rubber head monster like "Mystery Science" and movies with naked

chicks with beehive hairdos plus lots of interviews with people who made the

movies or else were in them. I had never seen a single one of these films

before. My boyfriend says I should also mention: DOrris Wishman, David F.

Freeman... Here you write it : )

Okay. Snarker here. I love this movie. I am a big fan of "bad film" and cult

moviemaking. I can't believe all the people who were important to B-movies

from the 50s and 60s that they got into this film. The DVD extras alone are worth the 20 bucks.
