Hilarious!
17 April 2002 | by (Washington, D.C.) – See all my reviews

This movie is the best horror-spoof ever!

My friends and I laughed and laughed. The way the movie ends is totally unpredictable and so silly that it is actually quite clever.

If you didn't like this movie, you have no sense of humor.
