An Entertaining B-movie
2 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty good, little horror-comedy film that a lot of people don't know about. If they did, it would get a lot more attention because it's simply entertaining. As far as I know, the DVD is out-of-print and hard to find. That's too bad, because I gave away my VHS, never got it back and probably will never see this film again. Perhaps I can find it at a rental store.

The 80-some minute story moves along very fast and has good characters. Robin Riker, as "Denise Gore," has a great face and - at least for me - alone is worth seeing the film. The same goes for Amy Dolenz, who is a lot of fun as "Wendy." Alan Thicke amazed me with his violin talents.

The only bad part is the special-effects, which are poor considering the year this was made (1993) but it is still a very good B-movie that should appeal to kids and adults. A reviewer here thinks adults wouldn't like this, but I'm up in age and I really enjoyed it. I wouldn't have little kids seeing this, though.

I hope this comes back on DVD because I'd like to see it again. I also wish I had a babysitter in my youth that looked like this!
