Fun, Fun, Fun!!
17 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Not too much to say about this little gem. Saw it when I was 8 or 9 yrs old and thought it was very cool. Last saw it a couple years ago and it's still good cheesy fun. Much more satisfying than any of the "monster" flicks coming out of H-wood today. ---and those gargoyle babies, they're oh so cute!

If possible you should rent this with "Don't be Afraid of the Dark" starring Kim Darby, and "KillDozer" for a seriously cheesy evening of fun.
