Lots of clips from various films, but the whole attitude is quite condescending, all but putting down a lot of films I like, just because there wasn't millions of dollars to make it (BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS, ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT WOMAN, HIGH SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL and many Ed Wood films). Reading the credits, saw the Medved Brothers listed as consultants; the authors of THE GOLDEN TURKEY AWARDS, which no doubt influenced the tone.
More ridiculous, there are clips from CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, WAR OF THE WORLDS and THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN listed in the guilty pleasures and those are GREAT films. **1/2
That's too bad. Those are great films, especially the last two.

The Burning (1981) I don't usually enjoy this kind of slasher(a la Friday The 13th)but this was an exception to the rule, and quite a fun treat from the usually trite HorrorChannel

THE BEAR (1989). Wonderful film of an orphaned Bear cub meeting an injured older Bruin and their adventures together. Magnificent scenery (supposed to be British Columbia, but filmed in Italy) and the animals are great, especially Youk as the cub-precious as can be! ****

Flesh for Frankenstein

Flesh for Frankenstein (1973) - really strange movie but enjoyable.

SAVAGE WEEKEND (1978, although there are various years of release). My copy is on one of those 100 movies collections and not the best quality. While story is not that great, believe it was one of, if not the first , film dealing with a masked killer stalking victims-although they are adults, not teens, being made before HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY, THE 13th.
Very low budget-counted at least six times the boom mike dropped into view and some rough acting but while it has cliches that became prevalent in the genre, they are presented differently (eg an outrageously gay man is nothing like You would normally expect) and some decent grue. Also, two extremely odd scenes that raised my eyebrows. **1/2
