Blu-ray Review: The Garbage Pail Kids Movie Collector’s Edition

9 December 2015 9:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Every so often, a film gets made that is so singularly baffling, so misguided and so wrongheaded that it is a kind of terrible miracle—something that should not be and yet is. The Garbage Pail Kids Movie is exactly that kind of film.

A complete bomb at the box office and mostly hated by all of those who initially watched it, the gross out kids comedy is ready for a second life, thanks to this packed with material Bluray release. It’s a film that guaranteed to be panned by a Lot of fright fanatics out there, but Scream Factory has done a great job of putting out films that cover every bit of the genre board and though it’s not a horror film by any means, it’s one that »

Ugh, moving. Am I right?

First there’s the making sure all of your stuff gets boxed up and relocated to the proper destination. Then there’s the unpacking and realizing that you’ve accidentally opened a crate of ennui, a realization that makes it tough to continue doing the work you’ve done for years, so pointless does the endeavor seem when the great, wide world is out there for the taking and/or a sad waitress might need saving.
