give me the baby john!
11 February 2002 | by (bubble) – See all my reviews

i hope people don't expect this to be a serious horror movie, because you won't find it here. what you will get is a fine journey of an ancient being in the modern day world. the "villain" in this movie is not unclerumpel but the mama who did not follow thru on her side of the deal. rumple grants the woman her wish of bringing her dead husband back to see their baby but when she refuses to give rumpel little john that's when all bets are off and leaves you rooting for the "son of bitch" to get the young soul.

there are many memorable lines by our witty friend and hopefully someone gets enough money to make the sequel to bring rumpel back to the big screen.
