Elvira and "The Girls" are back for more macabre madness with this exciting double feature DVD.
First, we have "The Terror". The movie, in essence, features a young Jack Nicholson (Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny!) stalking the ghost of a woman for two hours.
That's the movie. He stalks a ghost of a woman for two hours.
The next feature is , actually, entertaining. The movie, "Eegah" features that guy who played "Jaws" in the James Bond flms, I think???? He's about 7 feet tall and looks like Tony Robbins' and Ted Nugent's love child. Yeah, THAT guy.
He actually, isnt a bad looking guy....until he puts on his "Eegah" outfit, which REALLY makes him look like Ted Nugent.
Eegah, is a surviving neanderthal (much like Ted Nugent), and he lives in a cave at the top of a mountain...kind of like The Grinch....only minus the green. He doesnt have a dog named Max either, though he DOES keep the corpses of his dead, fellow neanderthal, family members in the cave. Dead Grandma neanderthal is a real "looker"!
Anyhoo, this dorky surfing dude, who likes to sing songs about girls...as long as they arent about the girl he is actually dating......
no, surfer dude likes to sing about OTHER girls, as a way of seducing his girl. Yeah, he's not very successful. But that's actually a good thing, when you learn that his girl is one of the most mouthy, irritating, complaining about everything, girls on the Earth.
That probably explains why the surfer dude is singing about OTHER girls...he probably wants to get as far away from this girl as possible, but doesnt want to directly break her heart, so he tries to do so by indirectly singing about other girls. The acting in this movie is...sub-par lets say. No Academy Awards were given out to this motley crue of actors and actresses, though Elvira DOES give out some awards to the cast. Funny stuff. Trust me on that.
Anyway, blah blah yadda yadda, the girl's Father goes looking for the neanderthal who had earlier scared the breakfast out of the girl
while she was driving on a dark road. The father gets kidnapped. The girl with surfer dude at her side, go looking for the father not knowing he is held against his will by the neanderthal. The girl gets kidnapped and surfer dude gets pummeled by the neanderthal. Good stuff!
Apparently, it's been a while since the neanderthal, Eegah, has had a "roll in the hay", or a "rave in the cave"(?) so he takes a liking to this pretty, though irritating girl, who by the way is sometimes funny in the movie, to her credit.
So, a surfer dude, a whining girl, a moronic father and a horny neanderthal walk into a cave.......sounds like a joke, right?
It IS. The movie is a joke.
But it has a certain charm to it. Elvira lets loose with some good jokes, and the overall movie experience, thanks 99.9% to Elvira, is a fun one.
You will enjoy this double feature DVD.
Corny movies, Elvira, horny neanderthals, and Jack Nicholson?
Does life get any better?
Yeah a whole lot better.
Yet you'll still enjoy this DVD. I love the new and improved "Elvira's Movie Macabre".
Check your local late night, weekend TV listings, and maybe you'll be able to enjoy the series also.
If not, you still have this, and three other Double feature DVD's celebrating the new and improved "Elvira's Movie Macabre":
1. "Night of the living dead" and "I eat your skin"
2. "satanic rites of Dracula" and Werewolf of Washington"
3. "The Brain that wouldnt die" and "The Manster"
Also, dvd's of the old "movie macabre" series are available.
I just prefer the new series. I hope they bring the Halloween and Christmas specials from the new series to DVD, next.
