Storyline

Based on the stage musical, Silver Scream is a dark humored spoof of various horror films with musical production numbers. When a small town's movie theater, the Saeger Theater, is about to be closed down, the theater owner, Mr. Friedkin, holds a final gathering where him and three teenagers, George, his best friend Tobe, and Tobe's sister Shelley are magically sucked into the realm of the movie screen where the guys, George and Tobe, are recruited by the 'King of the Silver Scream' a Dracula-like vampire called The Count to save the theater and his realm from destruction in which the guys go in search for Shelley while evading the evil Mr. Friedkin as they pass from horror movie to horror movie to save Shelley and find a way to help the Count remain King of the Silver Scream, while he claims to make Shelley his latest bride.

Great Classic Horror Homage
12 February 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

SilverScream is a musical tribute to old horror classics and our newer favorites as well. And itâ?Ts a musical. It started out as a stage show, and has been put into film version on the new Silver Screams DVD release. Instead of being a â?oRocky Horror Picture Showâ?, which it immediately calls into memory with its campy songs about by-gone drive-in thrillers, it is more like an â?ointo the woodsâ? for horror films. There are no major thematic drivers in this film like in the Rocky horror Picture show. There is no sexual struggle, no light and dark, no profound realizations of lost dreams and tragic characters. This film is much more lighthearted than The Rocky Horror Picture Show. There are more laughs and more songs as well. Itâ?Ts a musical, you know. The story begins when Tobe and George attend the last screening of a film at the historical Saenger Theatre. Mr. Friedkin, the evil owner of the theater, has sold it in order to build a parking lot. Enraged by the degradation of their favorite haunt, so to speak, the boys plunge headlong into their favorite movies and right up onto the screen to experience for themselves all the classics they love. And thereâ?Ts music. There is no strong storyline as the boys pass from one scene to the next, from one film to another. The plot is fluid and basic: The boys are seeking Shelley, a beautiful girl and sister to Tobe, who has gotten lost in the films. There are many actors and many memorable characters, particularly those of the stunning Shelley (played by Kristen Hudson), the object of desire of both the Evil Mr. Friedkin and the Count (Jimmy O Burril, who also directed and wrote). He does a Dracula/Bela Lugosi impression. There are several other main characters; three vampire girls commanded by the Count (one of which is played by the lovely April Monique of Chainsaw Sally fame), A deranged assistant to the Count, and creatures, monsters, and dancers of every type. The films that are sung about include Dracula, King Kong, Creature form the black Lagoon, Nosferatu (the silent version),Wolfman, Psycho, Night of the Living Dead, Plan 9 from Outer Space, Bride of Frankenstein, the Exorcist, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, with references to b-movies, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Carrie, and even Halloween. The fact that this film was originally intended as a stage show is clear from the get-go. The plot moves from one song to another very quickly. There is little dialogue to contend with between songs. The characters never become very developed, but the songs stay interesting and fun. Several segments that stand out particularly; the â?oTonight we Liveâ? by the zombie chorus, which shows us rotting corpses in a graveyard re-animating only to sing a song for us, sometimes with smiles on their faces; the creature of the black lagoon segment, which has beach blanket babes singing and swinging around while the creature abducts Shelley; and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre segment which very accurately re-creates the chase through the woods scene (with music). Did I mention itâ?Ts a musical? The music probably sounds better live than reproduced on stage. Itâ?Ts not that the songs are bad, itâ?Ts that the quality of the sound reproduction isnâ?Tt that wonderful. From the gore-gore girls dancing around a blacklight lit stage to the black and white silent reproduction of Nosferatu, the costumes and lighting are artistic and interesting. The sound quality is never clear, however. Did I mention itâ?Ts a musical? SilverScream, filmed in Scream-O-Vision, is a great tribute to horror films. Itâ?Ts entertaining and original. It smacks of Broadway and live shows, however, and maybe doesnâ?Tt translate as well onto screen as it does onto a stage.
