DVD Review: FILMGORE (1983)
Written by Forrest J Ackerman & Ken Dixon
Directed by Ken Dixon

Full Moon Features recently released a group of films they call the FULL MOON'S GRINDHOUSE COLLECTION. This is a great group of films, some of which have never been available on DVD before! Tonight's review is for one of the films from the Full Moon Grindhouse collection called, FILMGORE.
FILMGORE is a compilation feature. It is hosted by the one and only Elvira ,Cassandra Peterson, and features some of the most famous scenese from a number of classic well known (and some not so well known) horror films from the past. Some of the films featured are THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, SNUFF, BLOOD FEAST, DRILLER KILLER, 2000 MANIACS, and more!
Throughout the film, you get introductions to each featured movie by Elvira, the Mistress of the Dark. Elvira is known for her one-liners and puns, and they (along with her ample cleavage) are on disply here for sure. Some are pretty funny, but some are so bad it's a PUN-ishment to have to sit through them! Ha!
This is a fun film showcasing some of the best scenes from these horror films, without having to sit through all the complete movies. Most true horror fans will already have most of the films featured in FILMGORE, but it is still fun to have all the "greatest hits" on one DVD, and it is great to see Elvira in her prime.
The Full Moon Features Grindhouse collection contains 10 different DVD's, and they are all priced at only $10 each over at the Full Moon website! These are some great DVD's to add to your collection at a great price!
