Knowing that Andy is homeless and that college kids can't resist having big parties, Doc invites Andy to house-sit while he goes away ... Written by Production

Super Funny Movie
1 November 2020 | by hollykaplan1See all my reviews

This movie is a classic! Funny, scary, campy and an hommage to 1950's sci-fi and 1980's Horror. Perfect for a midnight show.
