Todd Dougherty has an imagination driven by comic book. So when he accuses his soon-to-be stepmother of being a monster, no one believes him. When neighbors start turning up dead, it becomes a race against time for Todd to stop this hideous, carnivorous creature from marrying his dad and ruining his life. Written by

The imagination, it is limitless as space. It's an escape from the real world. So when a monster threatens the neighborhood, it takes more than imagination to save the day. There's a teen named Todd(Billy Corben) who doesn't like the potential stepmother named Denise(Robin Riker). Simply because she's a tripopkin(a shape-shifting monster), that eats humans. The neighbors are dying off one by one, and his mother is gone too. No one in town believes him, except the beautiful sitter, Wendy(Ami Dolenz, Monkey Mickey's daughter) who he spies on at night, saved her from being tripopkin chow. At least he got a close up of her without her clothes on. He keeps searching for the tripopkin's weakness, the comic have it. But when the father(Alan Thicke) tears it up, he scrambles to find out. The weakness of a tripopkin is violin music. After he marries Denise, he finds out the hard way, and retaliates with some classic moves of his own. Amends go on, and he later finds out he wasn't widowed after all. Denise didn't kill everyone. This movie is very campy, and it's very good got a few known celebs like Corey Feldman, John Astin, and several others. I liked it very much!
3 out of 5 stars!
