THE 'BURBS (1989)
THE 'BURBS was an alright ride. I knew the basic premise of the story beforehand and was hoping that it was going to be balls to the wall crazy. But I should have known better cause it was pretty tame. Still I got a few chuckles out of it. Plus I finally discovered where that sample from Blood Freak's "Carnage Castle" came from!!!
Nowhere near as dark as it should have been, Corey Feldman acting cool, zero gore, zero blood, zero nudity, Tom Hanks freaking out, multiple references to Satan. Worth a watch. I'd love to see a remake by Takashi Miike or Shion Sono.
If you need me I'll be in my room reading Richard Matheson's "The Distributor".
