Chillerama's synopsis ends ".. with something for every bad taste." What an appropriate description for this four part anthology of schlock. "I Was a Teenage Werebear" was an embarrassingly painful gay musical, a deriviate of 60s surf films (Gidget!). "Zom B Movie" was tediously conventional and unoriginal. "The Diary of Anne Frankenstein" had some serious potential but failed to live up to its Mel Brooks aspirations. Adam Rifkin's "Wadzilla" however .. was bloody excellent!

A sexual potency drug with some unexpected side effects causes a man's sperm to go Godzilla. Hilarity with the army ensues in Technicolor 1950s monster movie style. Sweet semen laced Wadzilla. How your "sugar frosted holes" and abundant puns made me almost weep with laughter. I won't tell you anymore. Don't miss it!

"Anne Frankenstein." While easily the best piece of work Adam Green has done (which is not saying much considering how surprisingly vapid Frozen was), this short shot for the Mel Brooks moon but failed to clear the launchpad. Not to be confused with the Broadway play of the same name, the storyline centers around Anne's family secret which has been kept in the attic. That is, until an ineffectual Hitler takes it to make his own piece part payos sporting monster. While Joel Moore's portrayal of the genocidal jerk was excellent, his lines were not. And no, it's not pronounced frank-un-shteen.

I'd recommend renting this film just to check out Wadzilla. Skip the rest.

I think we are screening this one at Dedfest Victoria this year. Sounds like a hit and miss that still has to be seen.
