Storyline

Sam Smith is forced to move into the run down Flushing, New York house of his entertainment business partner Ernest Grey after they are evicted from their offices for making pornographic movies and losing all their money and equipment in the process. Ernie originally bought the house on Sam's ill-advice of the property soon being expropriated for a highway, which never happened. Further adding to the house's lack of appeal is that it is located next to a cemetery. As Ernie tries to sell the house, which is run by his devoted but exasperated housekeeper Molly Fletcher who hates Sam, he rents out rooms in it. As soon as Sam moves in, strange occurrences happen in the neighborhood, including a mutilated body being found in the cemetery, and one of their neighbors, Mrs. Potter, being attacked by a howling man.

You bet your Bippy!

So what's a Bippy? Well if your old enough to remember Rowan and Martins Laugh-In you'd know. This film actually goes no where but does feature the gorgeous Julie Newmar. It's terribly dated like Laugh-In but in a weird sort of way it's entertaining.
