Sure, its not up to the original and on a cerebral scale it wouldn't even register a reading - but so what? I cannot fathom however, why, with the number of quite acceptable reviews it has pulled here, the flick is locked-in to a voting poll of just 2.8 ?? Queen of the B-Graders Kristy Swanson does an acceptable job as the mannequin - she never CLAIMED to be Vivian Leigh! Whatever else she may be, she's uniquely wholesome and appealing and in a little flick like this she's all you need. William Ragsdale is another mega clean-cut youngster (He's 42 now, can u believe?) who in his just nine movies has never to my knowledge uttered a single profanity! No matter he has been immortalised as Charlie Brewster in the two FRIGHT NIGHT movies both of which just get better with time!
Terry Kiser, the long suffering deceased Bernie in the two WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S movies turns up in another offbeat little characterisation as the sorcerer.
Hell, leave the flick alone - my kids love it!
