This feature-length collection of clever, horror-themed short subjects is hosted by a pair of bickering Siskel & Ebert look-alikes who lambast each other more than the films they're screening. The horror tidbits include "Dr. Dobermind,' a creepy scenario in which a young schoolgirl is haunted by the image of a sinister-looking scientist; a snide parody of Alien called "Illegal ALIEN," which presents a coke-snorting space crew menaced by a Frenchman in a clown suit; "Night Fright," an effective peek at the monsters that lurk in the shadows of a young boy's bedroom; and "The Thing in the Basement," a campy homage to 1950s alien-invasion movies involving four poker buddies' desperate attempts to keep a big green invader at bay.
