A "Leatherface" type murderer who wears other people's faces, kills at an all-night horrorthon at an old theatre put on by a bunch of film students. Maggie, the lead character, believes it's really Lanyard Gates, a crazed film maker who killed his family live on stage, fifteen years ago. And now he's back to kill his daughter, Sara, who is believed to be really Maggie.Written by
The reason that the teenagers listen only to reggae music is that this film was actually shot in Jamaica. See more »
At the beginning of the scene where Dreamland is open, there is a shot of Maggie serving a man dressed as an alien. In the first shot, the man gives Maggie his money and his hand is bare. In the following shot he has a green alien glove on. See more »

Popcorn (1991) Jill Schoelen, Tom Villard, Dee Wallace Stone, Derek Rydall, Malcolm Danare, Elliot Hurst, Ivette Solver, Freddie Simpson, Kelly Jo Minter, D: Mark Herrier. California student Schoelen has dreams that are unknowingly shown on a horror movie, and soon a psycho wearing human flesh starts offing her fellow group of film students putting on a film festival at an old movie house. Herrier had some fun with this little horror-comedy that's a must for genre devotees, but the execution is poorly routine. Owns every horror factor, including horror-movie vet Stone, except the promotional gimmick (i.e.: Aroma-o-rama, 3-D, or Shock-o-vision). Running Time: 92 minutes and rated R for horror violence and some language. ** ½
