The Best and Worst of the Genre
7 September 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Horrible Horror (1986)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Zacherley hosts this collection of movie trailers that shows off some of the best and worst that the horror and sci-fi genre has to offer. The extended edition also contains numerous clips from short films and especially some of the ones that Bela Lugosi appeared in during the early 30s.

If you were around during the VHS days then you'll remember countless compilation videos out there that often featured hosts adding a little fun to the trailers. These trailer compilations were a great education at the time because you could watch them and discover new movies to then seek out in video stores. HORRIBLE HORROR is a tape I remember finding in Kroger one day while my father was shopping for groceries. All these years later the film was re-done in an "extended" edition and pushing the running time to 164-minutes.

I must admit, at nearly three hours this thing gets a bit old rather quickly so it would probably be best to watch it over a period of time. With that said, if you're a fan of trailers then there are overly seventy different films highlighted here but not all of the trailers are complete. You also get clips from various interviews that stars like Lugosi gave and there are also outtakes shown from ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN.

As a host Zacherley is a legend so his fans are obviously going to love seeing him. He does a nice job during his skits, although there's not too much new footage of him in the extended edition.
