Andrew Prine at his best!
1 June 2000 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This is a enjoyable little film that has Andrew Prine as a warlock who lives in the storm drain underneath the city. He meets a hippie who takes to a rich guys party and he encounters adventures and later wages war on the entire police force. Lots of great scenes, and Prine give a real honest performance. Character actors Normann Burton and Angus Duncan also are good. Recommended.
