Without a doubt one of the most eagerly awaited genre flicks of the year has to be Chillerama. The anthology, with segments directed by Adam Green, Tim Sullivan, Joe Lynch and Adam Rifkin, recently debuted on VOD (if you could find it). Next month, however, will see it unleashed onto Blu-ray and DVD through Image Entertainment and I cannot wait to grab myself a copy. The pedigree of the directors attached is quite impressive, with Hatchet, Frozen, 2001 Maniacs, Wrong Turn 2 and Detroit Rock City, amongst others, in their filmographies. November 29th is the release date and below you can check out the press release which includes the list of extras to be found.
CHILLERAMA FROM IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT –
INVADING A HOME NEAR YOU NOVEMBER 29TH
CHATSWORTH, CA – After a triumphant premiere at the famed Hollywood Forever Cemetery and after grossing out, er, entertaining audiences all over the country with a 20-city Roadshow Tour, the long-awaited new cult classic finally comes home! On November 29th, Image Entertainment unleashes the horror anthology CHILLERAMA to home theaters everywhere on unrated Blu-ray™ and DVD. SRP is $29.97 for the Blu-ray™ and $27.97 for the DVD.
From the depraved minds of directors Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City, The Dark Backward), Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs,VH-1’s “Scream Queens”), Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen), and Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Knights of Badassdom), CHILLERAMA is a festival of gore, guts, goofiness and good times. In addition to experiencing all the chills, thrills – and goo – of the ultimate midnight movie in high-definition 1080p picture and DTS-HD audio, CHILLERAMA boasts two hours of insightful and heretofore unseen bonus features that delve deep into the creative process of these four renowned directors of the macabre, as they labored and toiled to create a cinematic love letter to horror and film fans.
Produced by ArieScope Pictures and in the spirit of classic “omnibus” films like Dead of Night, Tales From the Crypt, Creepshow and Twilight Zone: The Movie, with four vignettes that not only celebrate the golden age of B horror schlock but also nearly the entire history of horror cinema itself, CHILLERAMA offers something for every bad taste. With titles like “Wadzilla,” “I Was A Teenage Werebear,” The Diary of Anne Frankenstein,” and “Zom-B-Movie,” CHILLERAMA features appearances by Joel David Moore (Avatar, Hatchet), Lin Shaye (Insidious), Ray Wise (X-Men: First Class), Kane Hodder (Hatchet and Hatchet II), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, Sharktopus) and more cameos than one can (body)count.
It’s the closing night at the last drive-in theater in America and Cecil B. Kaufman (Richard Riehle, Bridesmaids, Hatchet) has planned the ultimate marathon of lost film prints to unleash upon his faithful cinephile patrons. Four films so rare that they have never been exhibited publicly on American soil until this very night! What could possibly go wrong?

-Directors’ Video Commentary
-Wadzilla Deleted Scenes and Trailer
-The Making of The Diary of Anne Frankenstein
-I Was A Teenage Werebear Behind the Scenes, Deleted Scenes, and Trailer
-Zom-B-Movie Deleted Scenes
