[Director] Kuehn's documentary is a thrilling and excellent celebration of horror and the movie theater community...
A forgotten little treasure for old-school horror fans.
Before there was DVD, people actually paid money to watch these slapped-together clip jobs.
Pointless project of horror movie clips taken out of context
Jokey, generally flat documentary on slasher/horror films wears out its welcome.
This was an awesome compilation of great horror movies as well as some other added clips from sci-fi's and thrillers. Another dvd I need to add to my horror library. ;)
A good sampler.
I remember this sweet baby from when I was a kid. It was constantly advertised on Super Channel and seemed like the holy grail of horror films. I would hate this today (much like I hated the compilation Boogeymen, a lot of horror doesn't work unless it's given time to develop, not just show random clips!) but at the time it was like a greatest hits album where I would then seek out my favourites.
They missed many important horror films in this collection; and included many which I do not consider horror. I got tired of seeing scenes from "The Marathon Man". They had the second Friday the 13th film, but none of the others. A poor collection.
Obviously they couldn't get the rights to all the greats. It's hard getting scared just by looking at clips; terror needs to be built effectively, by immersing the audience in a situation; and a clip-fest just isn't the way to achieve it. The Nancy Allen and Donald Pleasence segments were a bit goofy.
I remember trying to see this at the theatre, and us not being allowed in because we were only 16. When I watched it on video soon enough, it was nothing special.
