Great Film
22 March 2003 | by (Worksop, England) – See all my reviews

I saw this because Angus Scrimm is in it he steals the film when he makes fun out of his most famous horror character The Tall Man from the Phantasm films. But the film is more like a spoof and should not be taken serious at all and keep a look out for Boris Karloff has he makes a special appearance.
