Trivia

One of the horror films this movie spoofs is Carrie (1976). Edie McClurg and Sydney Lassick, who have small parts in Carrie (1976) as the English teacher Mr. Fromm and Carrie's classmate Helen, also have minor parts in "Pandemonium". Lassick appears in the Bus Station scene, which spoofs Carrie (1976), as the homeless man with the "dirty pillows". See more »

Give this film a chance
21 January 2010 | by crystalartSee all my reviews

This is a very clever comedy.

Tommy Smothers has made a couple of unusual comedies, and this is one. The other is 'Get To Know Your Rabbit' where Orson Welles himself gets into the act.

'Pandemonium' is an excellent spoof of the slasher films that got too numerous to count.

Carol Kane is wonderful as the girl who's "finally going to get to use my diaphram". I think this is the first film in which I ever saw Judge Reinhold. Paul Reubens could hardly be better.

Give 'Pandemonium' a chance and you won't regret it.
