Chillerama (2011) | Marvel, cringe and delight at this twisted homage to drive-in B horror shlock


Irreverent to the point of verging on bad taste, Chillerama spoofs the horror anthology with four films being shown at a drive-in that is due to close down. While the patrons munch down their popcorn, infected with zombie blood, the tales (directed by Adam Rifkin, Tim Sullivan, Adam Green and Joe Lynch) are spooled for the first and last time by veteran projectionist Cecil B Kaufman (Richard Riehle).

Wadzilla is a gloobtastic take the 1950s drive-in classic The Blob as a giant sperm invades New York; I Was a Teenage Werebear turns Grease into a gay musical; The Diary of Anne Frankenstein is filmed in the style of 1930s Universal classic horrors with Hitler creating his own monster; and Zom-B-Movie is just hot moist madness. Wickedly funny and my idea of the perfect midnight movie. Watch out for Ray Wise, Kane Hodder and Eric Roberts who all make cameos.

Chillerama is available to buy on Blu-ray and DVD and screens on The Horror Channel (Sky 319, Virgin 149, Freesat 138) in the UK, with the next showing on Friday 7 February at 12.20m.
