A middle-aged woman, traumatized from the death of her adulterous lover, moves into a room at a New Orleans boarding house where the blind landlord becomes suspicious to her activities of continuing her affair with her dead lover.

An evil scientist implants the brain of Michael, a murdered high school student, into a Tyrannosaurus. He escapes, wreaks vengeance on his high school tormentors, and is reunited with his sweetheart Tammy.
The Hollowheads are a normal, loving, futuristic, middle class family who live in a dystopian, corporate-controlled, The Jetsons (1962)-type future world populated with many cool gadgets and some alien creatures. Henry, the pacifist head of the family, is hoping for a promotion at the slime factory where he works, and when his sleazy boss invites himself to the Hollowheads family dinner, Henry mistakes this for a sign that his moment has finally come. However, when his boss shows his dark, horny, perverted and rude side at the dinner table, and crosses all the lines when he starts verbally abusing Henry and sexually harassing his lovely wife, the family has no choice but to come together and fight back.Written by

Everything revolves around tubes in this futuristic "dark comedy" . The eclectic cast is interesting, with Nancy Mette, Richard Portnow, John Glover, and especially a cameo by Ann Ramsey. Ramsey is in charge of the local tube station, and her subtitled rant is worth the price of admission alone. Meanwhile the neon sets are creative with tubes pumping everything in and out of the domicile. There are obvious sexual double meanings referred to in all the "tube talk". Things eventually turn nasty with the Hollowhead's defending themselves from Mr. Hollowhead's lecherous boss. "Meet the Hollowheads" is definitely going to be an aquired taste, but for the right audience this is cult film caviar. "Good shift" . - MERK
