A funny comedy-horror movie
14 January 2002 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

This movie I knew would be great from the start because it 1. was funny, 2. it was funny (really) and 3. Bruce Campbell is in it. This movie is great and don't know why the studios discontinued sales of it. If you can find this movie get it, you won't be disappointed.

10/10
