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.

Shrunken Heads is Great!!
21 October 1999 | by Sarah11See all my reviews

I loved this dark, funny, strange little film. The plot was brilliant, and held me and my friends through all the twists and turns. We laughed our heads off at all the hilarious, dead panned lines of Lt. Col. Aristide Pierre Lafite Sumatra, of the Ton Ton Macoute - the friendly neighborhood news vender and witch doctor. This was a real treat!
