5.0 out of 5 stars I think everyone is missing the point.... April 13, 2008
The beauty of this and the other Elvira Movie Macabre's IS the poor quality and corny jokes. Movie Macabre was my weekend treat. When I was a kid I didn't quite get the Elvira comments. Now, watching them, she is a bit more witty and acerbic than one would think. The WINK, WINK comments are hilarious. I hope more come out soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!! That's all I have to say August 25, 2009

Gamera is ridiculously fun, in no small part due to its gaping plot holes (what kind of mother lets her 12 year old boy bring an injured woman to her house -- and let her son sleep in the same bed with her!) and its amazingly bad dubbing.

Almost as great in its badness is They Came from Beyond Space. This 1967 gem is nothing but unintentional laughs watching scientist Curtis Temple (Robert Hutton) try to save the woman he loves, then the world, from hooligans from outer space. There's a little more to the plot, but nothing important. In this type of movie, plot isn't important.

As fun as Gamera and Space are, they are even more enjoyable with the injection of Elvira and her humor at each "commercial break." As mentioned, up until watching these movies, I had never seen Elvira's show "Movie Macabre." Of course I had seen her. The woman is a machine, and genius, when it comes to marketing herself. There's a very good reason -- arguably two very good reasons -- why she can still be a major guest at a con 20 years after her show went off the air.

The best part about Elvira is she's not a "punny" horror host. In my (admittedly limited) experience, with the exception of Joe Bob Briggs, the hosts I have seen insist on being punny (think The Crypt Keeper from "Tales from the Crypt"). And I've never liked groaners, as they live up to their name. Instead of using weak -- and always obvious -- puns, the valley girl-esque Elvira pokes fun at the people and discrepancies in the feature film and her breaks are always amusing on some level. The best part about her is if she does resort to a groaner or pun, she cuts the camera a knowing look because she is quite aware how unfunny it is -- and that's what makes it funny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elvira on DVD November 14, 2007
This was the first time I had seen Elvira besides the movie. While this is no MST3K, her jokes can be somewhat funny, but it is nice to have these movies that aren't normally available on dvd. The movies can be watched with or without Elvira which is also another nice added touch.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good budget release of these two movies August 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have owned several releases of They Came From Beyond Space, and Elvira's version in this release is the best quality I have found so far. It's still not perfect but the colors are richer and less washed-out. As for Gamera: Super Monster, the version here is passable but probably not as good quality as the newer release Gamera vs. Zigra / Gamera: Super Monster by another company.
