"For those of us who have actually seen this movie, it's almost a cult classic. If you enjoyed the Hudson Brothers on their 70's tv show, this is even better. Full of jokes that become funnier every time you see it, and an unbelievable cast! My husband, parents, siblings, and now nieces and nephews, watch this movie EVERY year at Thanksgiving--an odd tradition, maybe, but we LOVE this movie! If you don't see it for yourself, YOU'RE DOOMED!"
What Difference Does It Make?

"Oh Man! I've been waiting for so long for this movie to show up on DVD. I'm a self-professed lover of "stupid movies"- and this one has to top the list. It is over-the-edge bizarre and totally silly, but you just can't help but laugh. I would think this movie scores high among the 12-15 age range scoping out all of the dirty subtext. And,this movie captures such an excellent atmosphere- I think it's visually perfect - including the sets (lighthouse on a cliff- creepy small town) - and the makeup for the "what difference" zombies. Top notch-"
What is it about this movie??

"This is beyond a doubt one of the most addictive movies of all time!!Like most of the reviews I've read, I too watched this movie as a kid. I remember our copy being recorded off of HBO and we wore it out. I rent this movie, from the one BLOCKBUSTER in town that carries it, at least once a year. It amazes me when I ask people about this movie and they have never seen it. To this day my family still quotes this movie. "he wants to know where the old light house is!" I think it's "hysterical" to look back at the things in the movie I laughed at as a child. I don't even know why it was funny to me then because alot of the humor is based more towards adults. I laugh at my own naivite, but it's good to know that you can watch it in front of the kids without much worrying. When you watch this movie for the first time watch it begining to end. You will be amazed at the non-stop humor pouring from every second of it!!"

"While the movie it self is a classic the DVD leaves much to be desired. I was disapointed to find that the DVD was in full screen as opposed to the wide screen I prefer. It also received no treatment whatsoever on the transfer. The titles are shakey as well as the picture. If i had to guess they transfered right from a video tape found at a local video store. If i had it to over again I would have stuck to my copy on VHS and spent my money on something else."
