demonic appliances from hell-my favorite!
30 May 2000 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

i was beginning to think i was the only person out there who had ever heard of this movie, much less seen it. i caught it on cinemax at 3 in the morning about 8 years ago, and i am shameful to admit i was more than mildly entertained. the mere ridiculousness of the film was enough to send me into laughter spasms. i must say it is quite unique. how many films out there are solely dedicated to killer appliances, especially refrigerators. they rarely get the credit they deserve. must see movie for fans of the weirder than weird.
