Hooray for Neil Reidholm, ahem, Sherriff Peterson, ahem, Aldo Ray!!!!!
11 December 2000 | by t_brown_17See all my reviews

The first shot of Aldo Ray in the bowling alley sums up the whole movie for me! He's all excited in that shot because he just... Wait a minute, did I just mention the word 'excited?' This is my review for HAUNTS, right? Oh, okay. Well, let's leave words like 'excited' in the bag. Hmmmm, let's see, what other words do I have in here? Here's 'awful.' And here's 'atrocious.' 'Spellbinding,' what the hell's that doing in there? Yeah, 'awful' and 'atrocious' work. So does lame, boring, hepetudinous, pointless, and confusing. But, anyway, hooray for Aldo Ray!!!
