my fav movie
7 September 2007 | by retroslasherSee all my reviews

i lovvvve 80's flicks (even though i was 6 by the time the 80's were over).. so i'm in this video store thats about to go out of business, i'm on my normal routine of looking for 80's horror flicks (my true love), i came across this title. the cover looked amazing! those crazy "hi-tech" 80's. there's a line in the movie where the guy from next door calls the Swit family "degenerate techno scum"!!! gotta love that! i watch this movie every sat. morning!! the score, the setting, and all the characters involved are priceless!! I also love the way his parents yell at each other, "he's not my son!" "he's not my son either!" good story line (whats with that statue of liberty?) dave thomas kicks *beep* in this, and you'll see Chris Elliot in there too. "detention for everyone!" As my man Adam Swit would put it, "It's the quiche of the 80's"
