MONSTROID - 1.5 Stars
Where do I begin? Set in a small Colombian village next to a polluted lake, the villagers and the American business men running the local cement factory (and the reason why the lake is polluted) are being stalked and killed by a giant monster who lives in the lake. And by giant monster, I mean a big rubber suite worn by a guy in a pool. A monster that isn't even scary, but is absolutely hilarious in how bad it is. Campy dialoge and cast of macho men and easy lays equals one monster movie that actually reminded me a lot of the GODZILLA remake, and PRIMEVAL. Why PRIMEVAL? Oh, did I not mention that this movie is based on a true story??? Well, according to the opening credits, it is. It's such a true story, it tells you it's a true story twice. Once at the beginning of the opening credits, and once at the end of the opening credits. So it has to be true, right? The ending will have you in stitches, and you'll likely be scratching your head, wondering what ever happened to MONSTROID 2.
ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK - 4 Stars
Elvira made both these movies not only worth watching, but fun to watch in the process. Taken straight from the original 'Movie Macabre' TV show she hosted in the early 1980s, her commentary on each flick is priceless, as she doesn't hold back when she tells you how bad these movies are. She knows it, you know it... and now it's time to sit back and laugh at it. They don't have hosted horror movies like this any more, and you'll likely wish they did after checking this out. Somewhat dated (it is the 80s), and jokes that are only somewhat amusing, it's Elvira's charm and knock-out good looks that will keep you tuned in. Not to mention her rockin' cleavage, which may be the most famous cleavage to ever hit the genre.
Audio: Both films and Elvira in 2.0 Stereo. It matched the video quality through and through.
Before the menu, each disc gets a trailer for The Search For the Next Elvira, a Reality-TV series starting this October on Fox. Also an entertaining ad for Stubbs the Zombie Soundtrack, and a trailer for Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper.
