In February 2012, the movie wound up in the headlines when a soundtrack for the gay-themed musical segment 'I Was a Teenage Werebear' was released. Director 'Tim Sullivan' found his eBay listings of the album were pulled and finalized sales were canceled because eBay deemed the auctions, which included a still from the film of Sean Paul Lockhart in his underwear, "morally offensive." eBay reps told Sullivan that he could re-list the soundtrack, but only in the pornographic adult-only section of the site.

It's the closing night at the last drive-in theater in America and Cecil B. Kaufman (Richard Riehle) has planned the ultimate marathon of lost film prints to unleash upon his faithful cinephile patrons.
I had moderately high hopes for this film, and for the most part they were met. "Wadzilla" was better than I expected, and "Diary of Anne Frankenstein" far exceeded my hopes... it was, without a doubt the highlight of the film (the fake German was hilarious, Joel Moore plays a great Hitler, and Kane Hodder as a golem? Perfection). I also enjoyed "Deathification".
The problem comes with "I Was a Teenage Werebear". This is the segment I had the most hope for, and it was just boring. It slowed down the pace of the movie and made the overall film seem much too long. I appreciate the concept and the throwback to 60s beach films, but I think they blew it. I just did not find it very well developed.
I still recommend this one to all horror fans. If nothing else, watch the "Anne Frank" segment. Just downright hilarious. And see how many references to classic films you catch (some horror, some not). It is no secret that Joe Lynch and Adam Green are passionate about horror, and this film proves it.
