Movie Reviews

Wonderful Film... Hilarious!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is a terrific spoof of vampire and horror movies. Steve Altman is brilliant in his role as Dexter Ward. Highly recommended!!!"

"Take 1500 puns, 500 sight gags, 3 musical numbers, a reference to almost every horror movie, at least 40 impersonations ( jack is the best ) the most confusing townfolk since Blazing Saddles hands down ( or more correctly Hans Up ), loads of cleavage, Robert Vaugn, "The Tall Man", and a special Ghost appearance by Boris Karloff and you have a pretty good movie. They could have put in an extra 10 minutes of Bloopers and out takes as a good bonus, and Wide Screen would have made it a topper. A movie that you will find something new in each viewing I'm sure. And remember don't drink anything that will hurt coming out your nose the first time you watch it."
Horror Hilarity

"This movie had me hooked from the very beginning with "amateurs." After that I never stopped laughing. The horror puns, spoofs and cliches abound. I couldn't believe that they had finally released a DVD version. It seems like it had been an eternity waiting for a version that I could keep.This movie is definitely aimed at horror fans, but others, not in my league of horror fanaticism, have enjoyed it."
This is *NOT* Transylyania 6-5000!

"Unlike Transylvania 6-5000, this movie is very funny.I originally saw this film sortly after it was released the first time on video. I then spent the next couple years trying to find it at a non-rental price. I lucked out shortly after it went out of print.This movie makes fun of Roger Corman films (especially The Terror), Horror movies, H.P. Lovecraft, and anything else it can get its tenticles upon. It is quite silly in spots. Some parts get a bit corny. Most of the jokes hit home though. I strongly recommend this film. It is a classic comedy that almost no one I have talked to has ever heard of.The plot is quite simple. Dexter Ward is given the task of retrieving the Book of Ulthar (which is about 3 feet by two feet, yet weighs next to nothing) from the person who checked it out from the Miskatonic Public Library over 20 years ago. Retreval involves a trip to a spooky looking castle in Transylvania. (Actually stock footage from "The Terror".) The rest involves a nubile film star, a vampire (played by Robert Vaughn), his butler (played by Angus Scrimm AKA The Tall Man in the Phantasm movies), three sexy vampires and the great grandson of Victor Von Helsing. There are some interesting cameos, including Forest J. Ackerman (holding a copy of "Famous Monsters of Filmland") and Boris Karloff.I am glad this is coming out on DVD and VHS again. Now I don't have to worry about someone walking off with my only copy."
