It’s the closing night at the last drive-in theater in America and Cecil B. Kaufman (Hatchet’s Richard Riehle) has planned the ultimate marathon of lost film prints to unleash upon his faithful cinephile patrons. Four films so rare that they have never been exhibited publicly on American soil until this very night! What could possibly go wrong?

In the spirit of classic anthology films like Creepshow and Twilight Zone: The Movie and containing films that not only celebrate the golden age of drive-in B horror shlock but also span over four decades of cinema, CHILLERAMA offers something for every bad taste. With titles like Wadzilla, I Was a Teenage Werebear, The Diary of Anne Frankenstein, and Zom-B-Movie and featuring appearances by Joel David Moore (Avatar), Lin Shaye (Insidious), Ray Wise (X-Men: First Class), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight) and more cameos than you can count, CHILLERAMA is sure to have you screaming for more. From the depraved minds of Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City), Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs), Adam Green (Frozen), and Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2).

That is the synopsis from the official site and it sounds pretty damn cool.  I really enjoy horror anthology movies; there is the aforementioned classic Creepshow as well as a few others I’ve seen like Cat’s Eye, Two Evil Eyes, From a Whisper to a Scream and Trick ‘r Treat (which interwove its stories).  I think they can make for a fun time and can sometimes lead the filmmakers taking a few chances direction and story wise.  I’m not very familiar with Adam Rifkin and only know of Tim Sullivan by name and work, though I’ve never seen any of his films.  I am familiar with both Adam Green and Joe Lynch and those two are enough to make me want to get behind this project.  I’m really looking forward to Joe Lynch’s Knights of Badassdom which should be released soon(ish).

I really dig the artwork for the home video release.  It is just a lot of fun to look at and has a cool style to it.  The dvd/blu-ray will be released on Nov. 29th of this year which is bad news bears for me as I would love to include it as one of the many horror movies I will be watching in the month of October.  The upside is that it will be available on VOD (Video On Demand) through some cable providers starting this Thursday, Sept. 29th.  I may go the VOD route much like I’m going to have to do with Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil, another highly anticipated horror title that is currently on VOD but the dvd/blu-ray releases after Halloween.  Either way though, I think if you are a horror fan you should definitely seek this title out and give it a look.
