A bizarre mish-mash
25 August 2000 | by Serpent-5See all my reviews

This film must have had many involved in the making of the film who had different visions of what this film should have been. The american theatrical 1-sheet hints it is a supernatural thriller (which it is not), the British video box suggest it is a possession thriller (which it is not), the movie plays like a afterschool special or one of them family movies with messages, yet it contains (though brief) language and nudity, so it isn't for kids (but really didn't deserve an R rating).

The basic premise had these motorcycle riding gangs crash a magicians grandson's (McKeon) party, and terrorize everyone (no death or excessive physical violence)until the adults chase them away, so in the end, the master magcian (Eddie Albert) and McKeon and his friends get even with them by making them go through their haunted house of magic! It seriously plays like a "message" teen film for TV!

This is a odd film as it stars American and England actors, yet looks like it was shot in Netherlands. Film was announced on video in US back in 1987, after its brief theatrical run, but instead came straight to HBO. Never was released on video here. Real catchy title tune by Paul Carrack however. And great to see Jonna Lee, whom we don't see enough of anymore.
