The first trailer has arrived for the horror-comedy anthology Chillerama, just as it embarks on a "Roadshow" tour of the U.S.
Directed by Adam Green (Hatchet, Hatchet II, Frozen), Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2: Dead End, the upcoming Knights of Badassdom), Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City) and Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs), Chillerama is made up of four, low-budget, B-movie horror shorts — Rifkin's Wadzilla, Sullivan's I Was a Teenage Werebear, Green's The Diary of Anne Frankenstein, and Lynch's Zom-B-Movie — all revealed in the movie as part of the closing night of the last drive-in movie in America. At the anthology's premiere at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary, Green told Dread Central that the inspiration was 2007's Grindhouse.

I love Grindhouse. I thought that was one of the best times I’ve had at the movies in the last ten years, but it was a $50 million dollar movie that was supposed to be a low budget movie, and we made a real version of that, that really was low budget and that really embraced that era, and it’s great that so many people have identified that right away and have been like, "This is what the s**t used to be like!" It’s so down and dirty, and there’s nothing fancy about it, and I want other filmmakers to get the chance to do what we did because it’s fun! It reminds you of why you got into this [filmmaking] in the first place.
