Anyone thinking that Chillerama is just going to be a modern day Creepshow with new bells and whistles of modern day technology, think again. Chillerama is nothing like Creepshow except for the fact that both happen to be in the horror genre and both happen to be anthologies.
Each of the four segments within the film is as unique as the directors that are involved. Adam Rifkin's "Wadzilla" is a hilarious throw back to old school monster movies, albeit with a giant killer sperm at the center. "I Was a Teenage Werebear" is an examination of the trials and tribulations of gay teenagers in the '60s that happen to be werebears, oh yeah, it's also a musical. "Diary of Anne Frankenstein" is perhaps the most hilarious of the bunch with an all-subtitled '40s-type feel with Joel David Moore playing Adolf Hitler and spouting German phrases such as "wienerschnitzel" and "osh kosh bgosh" and "fahrvergnügen" and "Boba Fett". Also with Kane Hodder as one pissed-off Jewish Frankenstein that won't be denied the opportunity to knock the block off a foam-headed Hitler.
This is all wrapped around a zombie-ish story by Joe Lynch that involves the last day of a drive-in and the showing of the films above to a rather normal set of people gathered at the cinema for the final event. There's only one problem … one of the drive-in employees decided earlier to have a little necrophilia with is dead wife of 10 years. And not to let things go, of course, the wife comes back to life and bites his beanbag off. But a good employee, he comes into work and still a bit randy from his time with the wife, decides to use the butter as lube…the butter gets into the popcorn and you can see where this is going.
"Zom-B Movie" is by far the goriest and brutal of any of the segments. After the popcorn is circulated, it turns into one chaotic, body-part laden orgy … yes, they are rape zombies. They rape you until your head pops off, your limbs are shredded you name it.
Chillerama is more about the laughs than it is anything else … scary isn't a word I would use to describe it. The sperm/sex jokes alone in "Wadzilla" come so fast and furious that you almost need a second viewing just to see which ones you missed.
But Chillerama is also about making you uncomfortable as possible. Sperm wrestling, massive amounts of jizz being spewed onto everyone, anal sex parties in the shower, teens turned into YMCA rejects wearing assless chaps, a werebear penis through the abdomen, slapstick Hitler and his pinky swearing, headless body parts getting raped by zombies, heads getting raped without bodies and this doesn't even include the entire sub-segment "Deathecation" which is mainly just poo being thrown on various females, people pooing, poo art … you get the idea.
But all of this is in good fun and you can tell this was just thrown together for the hell of it and for fun, which to the viewer makes it fun. And the ending is a smash with Richard Riehle's Cecil character spouting every memorable line from every action or drama movie in the past few decades.
Chillerama is delivered this fall and worth checking out for a laugh and some seriously gross-out moments, just don't expect the same type of horror you may be used to seeing from these popular directors in it.
