It's the closing night at the last drive-in theatre in America, and manager, Cecil Kaufman's planned to show 4 movies; films so rare, they've never been exhibited publicly on American soil, until tonight.

This movie is filmed using tricks of the trade in the early 1950's and looks visually stunning as it unfolds.

While there is lots of good there's also lots of bad but all in all I really enjoyed it because the bad was supposed to be bad.

Hugely enjoyable horror comedy romp .

It is a rousing musical about a sexually confused young man who is bitten by a were-bear (long story) and struggles to keep his morality.

Offensive, gory, puerile, juvenile; appealing only to those with a warped sense of humour who find mainstream films formulaic and dull.

Digging up the Marrow (lame n boring), Chillerama (repulsive horror comedy/spoof).

This was our first time being extras, and still exciting even though we are just a blip in the movie.

By the time of the Nazi FRANKENSTEIN story, interest levels will be waning, and given that virtually nothing happens in this segment you can rest assured that you won't be missing stuff.

The second film is a musical about a gay teenage wrestler who has a coming of age experience after getting bit in the ass and turned into a wear bear by another gay wrestler.

What at first sounds like a random genre mix is actually very entertaining.

Horror-comedy can be a very entertaining sub-genre.

This is the segment I had the most hope for, and it was just boring.

Generally I think a Horror/Comedy works great if they manage to keep the fun, enticing subjects of a horror film and the exciting, spooky atmosphere, and combine it with genuinely funny jokes.

Funny and entertaining.

The 'cringe' is so strong here as to make the film totally unwatchable.

I loved the fact a few of the cast in the Hatchet movies were in this and that made it even more enjoyable for myself.

Overall, "Chillerama" is uneven but entertaining enough to be worth a look.
