A delicious mysterious goo that oozes from the Earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation. But the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.
The fictional suburban community of Appleton is turned upside down thanks to Harvey McGraw, an annoying census taker who's in charge of checking the neighborhood's population. When Harvey visits George and Martha Dade, they reluctantly invite him in, but when the questionnaire turns too personal for the couple, they accidentally shoot him in the forehead. They are then forced to hide his body from their company, Martha's sister Eva and her husband Pete, a former detective. When he discovers Harvey's body in the kitchen closet, a bright future is very unlikely for George and Martha. Written by

Yes, this is a low-budget comedy with cheap sets, but it is a direct spoof of "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Wolfe?" Even the characters see the parallel, as their names are George and Martha. Martha's first words are, "What a dump!", a direct quote. You have a dysfunctional couple who have to host a younger couple. Secrets are revealed. If only they had eliminated that annoying census taker this would have been even better. The couples' interaction could carry the movie. The best aspect is you get to see the FUNNY side of Meredith MacRae. She was usually typecast as the ingenue, occasionally getting to sing, but always serious, even in comedies. You had to see her on a game show to find out how smart and funny she was. This was the only time she showed off her sarcastic, comic delivery. I was a big fan of hers in the 70s, but never heard of this until about 8 years ago. Thank goodness for cable.
