| A great parody of Matinees
This film seems to have become quite obscure but I think that it is an original and unique film that is a wonderful parody of matinees. The Cat and Mouse cartoon sequences are outstanding. The animation in these segments is great and the segments themselves are very creative,clever and funny.

The trailer at the start about the big new film that has all the movie stars who are going to be in it has a very funny punchline to it. The news reel jokes are also very funny. The New Adventures Of The Great Galaxy previews are creative although I would have liked the segments to have been longer because I think that they could have done a bit more with them and they don't really have a conclusion to them.

The first main feature that is called House Of The Living Corpse is a very funny send up of haunted house type movies that I actually thought had some suspenseful moments to it that went along well with the humor. The acting in this segment is also good. I thought that Betty Kennedy stood out the most with a very funny performance.

The second feature that is called Phillip Alien is also enjoyable. It looks like it would have been the most technically difficult part of the film to do but I think it comes over well with good effects. The script of this part is creative and it moves along at a good pace with an imaginative story and a good shoot out at the Hollywood sign that is exciting to watch. Pamela Sue Martin is an attractive and likable ally to the alien and the story has some good twists to it.

In all the film achieves what it sets out to do by being clever,imaginative and funny.
