Three short films within a film that takes place at the last night at a drive-in movie theatre, where you can get entertained before you get raped by zombies.
Wadzilla – Miles Munson is having a problem with his sperm count. His doctor prescribes him an experimental drug named Spermupermine that causes him to have agonizingly painful erections, where he ejaculates one big monster sperm that grows to gargantuan proportions. His last load wreaks havoc on New York City.
I Was a Teenage Werebear – an homage to 60′s teen beach musicals about a teenage boy who is struggling with his sexuality, gets bitten on the ass by the leader werebear and comes to terms that he’s actually gay and also a werebear.
The Diary of Anne Frankenstein – Adolf Hitler creates a monster who happens to look like a Hasidic Jewish man in order to win WW2. His plan unfortunately backfires with some gruesome results. The dialogue is completely in German, Yiddish and some gibberish.
Zom-B-Movie – The popcorn butter gets tainted, turning the drive-in patrons into sex crazed zombies.
Special features include: Commentary, The Making of The Diary of Anne Frankenstein, Wadzilla deleted scenes, I was a Teenage Werebear behind the scenes and deleted scenes, Zom-B-Movie deleted scenes, FamousMonsters.com interviews at Comicon with the directors, Salfen.com comic-con interview with the directors and theatrical trailers.
This film is a horror anthology like Creepshow, but mostly a parody of classic horror B-movies. The opening scene of Zom-B-Movie has a guy in a cemetery attempting to defile the corpse of his dead wife, who suddenly comes to life and bites his penis off. Does the guy go to the hospital? No he goes to work at the drive-in of course. Priorities, man.
Wadzilla was totally disgusting, but hysterical, and I thought it was incredible that Eric Roberts agreed to playing a character named General Bukakke. I Was a Teenage Werebear was cheesy, but fun. Lin Shaye who appeared in two of the shorts has to be one of the coolest actresses in the business; she can run with anything. I loved that Joel David Moore was cast as Adolf Hitler in The Diary of Anne Frankenstein, I think he did an amazing job. The entire film was silly and entertaining. I think it’s great when directors can make a film they want the way they want, and it’s actually good.
Total Rating: A
