It is the final viewing night at a drive-in movie. Four of the rarest B horror movies are set to air. People from all over the community go to watch, but the story mostly centers around three friends; one with a crush on the concession stand girl and the other two dancing around each other. Film one starts up, “Wadzilla.” About a potency drug that mutates the sperm of the patient. Then the second film is shown, “I Was a Teenage Werebear.” Some knowledge of gay scene lingo is necessary to recognize all the jokes involved in this coming of age ridiculousness. The third movie is “The Diary of Anne Frankenstein.” Obviously, if you are easily offended, you might want to skip over. Finally, the last film starts up, “Zom-b-Movie,” which just speaks for itself.

The actors weren’t bad, I had an issue with a couple of them, but for the most part they were pretty good. I like Sean Paul Lockhart and he was in the second segment which was hilarious and awesome. That segment was like “Teen Wolf” if it was a musical and the lead was gay.

At first, I didn’t know what to make of this movie. This wasn’t the first time I attempted to watch it. The first time, I got about two minutes in and decided this was definitely a movie I was going to have to watch with someone. I was right. This is the kind of raunchy, ridiculous, offensively hilarious movie that you definitely want to share with friends.

This movie was a perfect example of the kind of B movie I talked about in my last review. The one that isn’t afraid to laugh at itself and is so absolutely terrible that you die laughing the entire time. Of course, that’s my opinion. As with any movie like this, you are going to get very varied opinions. The friend I shared this movie with, Mike, hated it. He liked part of the first segment, part of the third segment and the ending. Period. The entire time I was rolling off the couch giggling, he was staring at the screen with his mouth open, catching flies.

The movie had a few faults, but for a raunchy B-movie, I thought it was fantastic. If that’s the kind of thing you like, I definitely suggest you watch. If you do, I have two bits of advice. First, the fourth segment has such a bad start to it that I almost turned it off; power through the three minutes of that annoyance, because the ending is totally worth it. Second, stay until after the credits. There are extra scenes plus a messed up little video notation at the end.

Overall Opinion – 3.5/5
