I believe this DVD was never manufactured due to rights issues. From what I have heard it was cancelled about a week or so before it officially came out.

Movie Reviews

Absolutely hysterical, especially for fans of the genre.

"This really is a fun little movie. If you love those great 50s sci-fi gems this is a must for you. Done in a tongue-in-cheek style "It Came from Hollywood" is a compellation of some of the funniest (unintentionally) scenes from some of the cheesiest movies ever made. Absolutely hysterical, especially for fans of the genre. Highly recommended.
Sadly this was never released on DVD. Various DVD websites have indicated that it was cancelled before it was released. Martin Blythe of Paramount confirmed it in a post at DVD Talk. Paramount took this off of their July 2002 schedule because of those dreaded "clearance problems."

On a down note, through recent correspondence with Paramount I asked if they were planning on revisiting a release of this title sometime in the future and was told "no plans - clearances would be impossible". C'MON PARAMOUNT - NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!

"A miriad of characters played by Dan Ackyroyd, cheech and chong , and the late greats John Candy & Gilda Radner take us on a journey through some of filmdom's most forgettable movies. The journey they take us on is some the campiest, schlock filled, exploitation films we thought we could forget. Well, at least should forget. I first saw this late one night and instantly fell in love. This movie introduced me to a world of movies I never new existed."
A lot for a little

"For those who don't know, this film (released in 1983)is a compilation of clips of Z-grade movies compiled into segments hosted by SNL/SCTV allumni. They are:1.Gorillas (Gilda Radna)
2.Aliens (Dan Ackroyd)
3.Giants and Tiny People (Cheech and Chong)
4.A Tribute to Ed Wood (John Candy)
5.The Brain (Dan Ackroyd)
6.Musical Memories (Gilda Radner)
7.Technical Triumphs (John Candy)
8.Troubled Teens (Dan Ackroyd)
9.Getting High in the Movies (Cheech and Chong)
10.Monsters (Gilda Radner)At a mere 81 minutes this beer swillin', politically incorrect video manages to pack an in an incredible ammount of stuff. I've watched the video several times and I still pick up stuff I've forgotten or missed on previous viewings. Having sat (and yawned) through a few of the films from which this video is compiled ("The Hypnotic Eye" for example) I can say with confidance that excising the most ridiculous bits does no disservice to the originals. This is the best way to see 100 Z-movies in the shortest time. As to the commentary: the red-herring jokes meld perfectly with the red-herring dialog of the clips. Forget nay-sayers, this video is worth it."
