Suprisingly Really good!
16 July 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I will admit,Possibly the only reason I watched this movie was beause it was directed by Robert Englund,But this movie is quite good!Young Hoax(Stephen Geoffreys) is an all out nerd,With his crazy Religious mother(Sandy Dennis) ruling his life,With his older cousine Spike(Patrick O'Bryan) as his only refuge to the outside world.One day,Spike finds a advertisment for "Horrorscops" at 976 Evil,And uses it a few times,But when Hoax finds it,The murders begin and so does Hoax's Transformation...

Supirsingly well made film has great acting,Good direction,Good gore,And is actully chilling.Great music and opening,With a great end.The special effects are good,And I felt bad for some of the victms,Plus Suzie(Lezlie Deane) Is Hott!!!
