The long awaited horror anthology from Adam Green, Joe Lynch, Adam Rifkin and Tim Sullivan, Chillerama, made its US premiere last week at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery – check out our red carpet interviews – and is currently on a theatrical road show (dates here).
The movie features a bunch of this crowd’s regular players (Joel David Moore, Kane Hodder, AJ Bowen) and genre vets alike (Richard Riehle, Lin Shaye, Ray Wise). It also features copious gore, nudity, innovative hijinks and some really interesting… ideas. I’ll say this, you’re getting more or less exactly what the trailer is promising.
Unfortunately it also features one of the single worst anthology installments I have ever seen. It may be the worst 26 minutes of anything I’ve seen or experienced this year (and it’s longer than any other installment in the film). It comes early in the movie and is such an utterly draining experience that it’s almost impossible to enjoy the rest of the film.
Chillerama will be on DVD/Blu-ray on November 29th. Hit the title for the review.
