If you get it, you'll love it!
30 November 2002 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Oh come on! What do you expect? It's a trashy horror/comedy

starring Adrienne Barbeau. And it's a REALLY FUNNY one at that.

If you were expecting anything more...well I just can't understand

how you could. It is what it is---and it's FABULOUS!
