All around funny parody on 1930's horror
28 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I was in this movie and not only was it a blast to work on, but it was quite hilarious to watch. The more you know about vintage Universal and Hammer horror, the more you will laugh about this movie that points out the ridiculous clichés of the time. If you can get a copy, I recommend watching it. For a movie that was filmed in the house of the producer/director/editor Sue Svehla, the quality and sound are surprisingly accurate. The black and white along with the crackling screen effect add to the validity of a 30's horror flick. The acting is good for a bunch of amateurs that are the producer's friends with whom I regularly watch football. There are some professional actors in the mix like the ever-smooth Mark Redfield. He conjures the 1930's villain spirit with total expertise. On the other hand, I played the newsboy at the beginning of the film and needless to say it was not a good performance. Anyway, it's only 57 minutes and it will have you chuckling at the least.
