Fabian is trapped in a film with bad acting kids., 11 May 1999
Author: William ( from Seattle, Washington

This film was supposed to released by Film Venutres International under the title CAUTION:CHILDREN AT PLAY many years ago, but the president of the company disappeared after a lawsuit leaving this film in limbo and now public domain nightmare. Teen Idol Fabian plays a local cop who meet and falls for Burns (from TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE) is basically a subplot. The main plot is these little kids (a brother & a sister) who's father was murdered by Robert Dryer and his biker gang. But the kids have special powers to bring the dad back to life to get even with the bikers and even kill a drunken Jon Cedar in the process. The film is dull, boring, barely "R" rated, and has a terrible music score. Marvin Miller has a nothing cameo as a food mart store owner. Skip it!
