Reviews [click links to read more]:
“The flick clocks in at a whopping two hours, which is too long for a compilation of just about anything. Then there are Elvira’s constant intrusions on the action. Basically, she just stands around with her cleavage stuck and tells awful jokes. (I could’ve done without the latter).” The Video Vacuum
“The odds are high that, if you’re a horror nerd like myself, you’ve already seen (and probably own) a handful of the movies featured. But it’s not without its merits. Maybe put it on as background noise if you’re having a party and have a bunch of creeps for friends, it could serve as a great distraction…” HNN
