Elvis Presley and a black "JFK" stay in a nursing home where nothing happens - until a wayward Egyptian mummy comes and sucks out the old people's souls thru their a-holes. The two decide to fight back.
In the days leading up to Halloween in a Southern California suburb, 11-year-old Kenny and his best friend, Doug, play flag football, ride skateboards, get into mischief, and fend off the neighborhood bully, Johnny Hoffman. Ten-year-old Sherman, better known as "dumb ol' Sherman," lives across the street from Kenny and always tags along, making a nuisance of himself. Kenny falls in love with classmate Marcy, who spurns him, and he suffers the loss of Bob, his beloved but ailing dog. At school, Kenny interacts with his friendly teacher named Mr. Donovan, a foreign exchange student named Paco, and the class clown, Pudwell. As Halloween approaches, Kenny, Doug, and Sherman create their own crazy costumes, set off powerful firecrackers, go out unsupervised for trick-or-treating, and at the climax, pull a prank on a spooky old lady living in a haunted house.Written by
Kenny & Company was very popular in Japan. A year after finishing the movie, Don Coscarelli took A. Michael Baldwin, Dan McCann, and Jeff Roth on a tour of Japan where they were met by throngs of teenagers. After the release of his next feature film, Phantasm (1979), Don Coscarelli returned to Japan, and found Michael Baldwin's name on a list of best actors. Coscarelli noted that Baldwin was number seven on the list, ahead of Sylvester Stallone. See more »
I havent seen this movie in such a long time, i thought i might have imagined it! But, here it is, and i'm glad to have found some info on it. I've tried for years to get a copy of this, or catch it on TV, but no luck. If anyone out there has it and would like to trade for it or make me a copy or something, i'd be grateful, as this was such a great movie.
