George and Martha Day (Greg Mullavey, Meredith MacRae) are a typical suburban couple who live in the peaceful neighborhood of Appleton located above Los Angeles. Harvey McGraw (Garrett Morris) is the census taker who's in charge of checking the community's population. The Days willingly invite McGraw in, but the simple questionnaire turns more personal that it angers the couple and they accidentally shoot him in the forehead. They are then forced to hide McGraw's body and remove any evidence from their guests, one is an detective. Before long, the detective discovers the body and George and Martha's future is in jeopardy.

Came across this movie just recently, and found it quite a good suspense thriller. The tension builds gradually, as the census taker asks all kinds of impertinent questions, thus invoking the wrath of the married couple. Complications ensue, and the body count mounts. A grim comedy, with several twists.
