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
