Psycho landlady collects bodies instead of rent
26 September 2001 | by sbunc92-3See all my reviews

At times it seems Talia Shire was playing this for laughs. Her performance definitely hit some very campy notes. Fairly predictable the whole way but becomes ludicrous as the body count piles up. And it's always good to see Courtney Gaines(Rags from "Hardbodies") still working. Tiny role but you can't miss him.
