Trivia

At the very end of the end credits, a freeze-frame used as a background image for the production company's title shows a man sitting up in a coffin trying to strangle another man standing next to the coffin. This freeze-frame is from another scene deleted from the workprint when Mr. Strack is attempting to come up with a scene for a novel, dictating his thoughts into a tape recorder, and in the background behind him this scene is shown with the coffin and the two actors. It can also be seen online on YouTube. See more »

Loads of spooky fun with Perkins
2 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

This pilot for a never-materialized series (another reviewer is incorrect in referring to it having a run of only 2 episodes....this, the pilot, was the ONLY episode ever made. It was never picked up or approved as a weekly series.) is a lot of corny, goofball fun. It was a perfect situation for Anthony Perkins, and the rest of the cast is hysterical throughout, often stealing scenes right out from under Perkins, especially Joshua Miller as Edgar, and Pam Matteson as Miss Blasco (who seems to echo Madeline Kahn had Kahn been playing the character). It would have been interesting to see what other stories would have been created had this delightful concept been given a chance.
