Wacky horror comedy
9 December 2005 | by hogbolellySee all my reviews

Hahahha! This movie is hilarious; similar premise to Child's Play but I enjoyed it more. As opposed to many horror movies, or horror/comedy movies, this movie embraces strangeness to a degree not seen in many other films. The weird neighbor, manipulative psychiatrist, disturbing janitor, evil nurse, and other characters deliver some very funny moments. The film scoring for this movie has a theme that seems like it was written for a children's daytime TV show; which makes the chase scenes hilarious. The other reviewers missed the sense of humor in this film. Whether it was intentional or not(and I believe it was) this movie contains some very funny parts.
