Pretty good
11 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

George Wendt plays a seemingly normal man who lives with his wife, daughter and mother. Unfortunately they're all dead--skeletons dressed up in clothes. Then a nice normal couple movie in across the street and things get weird...

A comedy (sort of) with horrific undertones. It's strange (but you could probably tell that from my plot synopsis) and takes twists and turns that you don't see coming. It's well-acted and well-directed. One problem though--it's not really scary. For being in a show like "Masters of Horror" you would except something more horrific. There's blood and guts here but that doesn't make it horror. So--within its limits--not bad. Director John Landis must have been having an off day when he did this. I DO give him credit for not throwing in pointless female nudity (which he seems to enjoy doing).
