Goofs

When Sally's walking as Vinnie and the Vipers approach her in their station-wagon, she's walking on the right side of their car, but when Mr. Sumatra gets her attention, she's suddenly on their left side, and there was enough time of her being out of the picture for her to cross the street when Vinnie was stopped by a few pedestrians crossing the street.

Immensely enjoyable dark comedy!
20 October 1999 | by gary-146See all my reviews

Shrunken Heads is an immensely witty and enjoyable comedy for those with a dark sense of humor. It's like 50's Walt Disney movie for the first quarter of the film... until the bad kids kill all the good kids. The neighborhood news vendor, a former colonel in Haiti's notorious Ton Ton Macoute, is so incensed, that he shrinks and re-animates the heads of the fallen good guys. Now they fly about the city seeking revenge against evil doers. If only their leader Tommy wasn't still in love with Sally! And that, you must see to believe!
