Ernest P. Worrel tries out a strange contraption he bought cheaply called the Changing Coffin. The machine turns him into his opposite - a mad scientist and supervillain bent on world domination called Dr. Otto. He plans to use his Gloom Beam to render all the computers that keep people's financial records and bank accounts useless which would make him the only one with access to all this dough. Bumbling hero Lance Sterling and his cautious sidekick Doris are sent to Dr. Otto's lair to stop him. There, they must face various scary alter egos of Dr. Otto as well as his manservant, Willie the Robot.
Most copies of this film that are available are of very low visual quality. Because of this, some fans have been campaigning for the film to receive a new scan from the original 35mm film negatives. This might prove very difficult as all the negatives and prints of this film no longer exist. A few prints were, however, sold to private collectors within the last few years. So the chances for a digital remaster of the film are possible, but very low. See more »

[Closing message] We're sorry Elmo - if we get to film another one, we'll make it up to you. See more »
A dark comedy, a twist that is somewhere between Ernest and Tim Burton, very cheaply made but well done, surrealistic plot with very cool characters made especially by the man Jim Varney. This movie is like watching a dream and then waking up not having any idea what to think, what a great flick.
