Chillerama Directors Green, Sullivan, Lynch, Rafkin
Okay I’m a little late on this one. I would have not even known about Chillerama if it wasn’t for the invention called NetFlix. You know you’re bored nothing to watch so you randomly pick something. Sometimes it blows and sometimes it’s surprisingly good. It’s the best way to discover shit you would otherwise never watch.
Now there are good, great, epic, amazing, and Oscar worthy films. Rarely do you come across one that you can label as utterly fucking genius. Chillerama certainly fits in this category.
The film is an anthology of shorts with a wrap-around story. The shorts are Wadzilla, I was a Teenage Werebear, The Diary Of Anne Frankenstein, and the wrap-around flick Zom-B-Movie. First off the titles are genius! This movie is a bunch of guys (Adam Rifkin, Adam Green, Joe Lynch, and Tim Sullivan) having fun, thinking of the most outrageous ideas and shooting them.
Ray Wise In Wadzilla
I’m not going to review each segment, I will write a little about them later. I will, however, review Wadzilla Directed by and Staring Adam Rifkin. This short is about (I’m laughing out loud just thinking about it) a guy named Miles with not a low sperm count but he can only produce one sperm. His Doctor (Ray Wise) gives him an experimental drug that’s supposed to increase his sperm count. However every time he gets aroused he has excruciating pain in his balls (I would write testicles, but this is my fuckin’ blog). Miles returns to the Doctor who has him jerk off into a cup. A few moments later there is a scream in the office and the doctor rushes in to see Miles has ejaculated one giant sperm. The Doctor tells him that instead of producing more sperm, every time he gets excited it makes the one sperm grow bigger. He instructions him to jerk off every time he gets aroused.
There’s a hilarious scene where Miles, fights with his own sperm, the sperm then grows and starts wrecking havoc on the town. Where would a giant sperm go… to impregnate the statue of liberty of course.
The film is stocked full of classic comedy. It’s a throw back to the old scifi B movies of the past, but it’s better because of the subject matter. I almost pissed myself watching this one. If you want to be entertained, shocked, and just overwhelmed by brilliance you have to check it out. The effects are great (in a B-movie way of course), the cast is great. You can tell everyone involved is having a lot of fun and you wish you were there with them on set. This short HAS TO BE SEEN to be believed.
The other shorts were entertaining as well. The second best was the Zom-B-Movie (Directed by Joe Lynch) wrap-around story. It’s got Zombie lactation, severed penises being eating, Zombie blowjobs, and a girl getting head with… well a head.
The Diary of Anne Frankenstein (Directed by Adam Green) has some great moments. There’s a scene where Hitler (Joel David Moore) is hiding from the monster (named Meshugannah haha and played amazingly by Kane Hodder) the monster tries the door but it is locked so he just walks around the set and confronts him. Great stuff!
Enjoying zombie Penis in Zom-B-Movie
The least favorite, well I didn’t like it at all, was I Was A Teengage Werebear (Directed by Tim Sullivan). People might say “of course cause it was about a GAY werebear”, but no. There wasn’t any comedy or horror elements. The concept was cute but did not deliver on the outrageous funniness that the others had. The musical numbers weren’t funny nor choreographed well. It was like Sullivan wanted to make a great B-movie schlock flick but in his heart he wanted to make a serious musical. Skip this short and everything will be alright.
So there you have it. Jump on NetFlix and watch some Chillerama!!
