This story takes place in a typical American neighborhood, when some new neighbors come to live in the house next to Ray Peterson. These new people are really strange; nobody has ever seen them, their house is a real mess, and during the night you can hear weird noises from their basement. The only thing they know is their name: Klopeks. One day Walter (an old man of the neighborhood) suddenly disappears and everyone starts to suspect the Klopeks... Written by

Did You Know?
In the original script Ray Peterson was intended to be killed by Dr. Klopek. However, once Tom Hanks
was cast in the role, the studio didn't think the audience would appreciate witnessing his death on screen, so the ending had to be reworked. Several alternate endings to the film were also shot where items other than bones were discovered in the Klopek's trunk, including dead cheerleaders and the garbage men seen earlier in the film.
