“I absolutely loved this movie! Iu0026#39;m a fan of u0026quot;badu0026quot; horror flicks and such, but this was a genuinely good and fun flick! Itu0026#39;s a perfect mix of horror and comedy, with some genuine startle-moments, some genuine creepiness, and some incredibly good humorous moments.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy biggest gripe was that the ending felt quite rushed and that it ended a bit too abruptly, that there was no final Climactic Showdown as I mightu0026#39;ve expected, no hand-reaching-up-from-underground-to-grab-the-heroine, no u0026quot;twistu0026quot; like that.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCourtney Halverson was a treat to watch, a sort of redheaded Abby Brammell, and showed a fine mix of strength and vulnerability in her character.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWilliam Devane was great as the cantankerous (but right!) grandpa.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBilly Zane was a real treat in all his billyzanian goodness, and delivered some PERFECT humorous lines (especially about his nametag!).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie didnu0026#39;t take itself seriously. It was NOT intended to be a straight-up horror flick, but was filled to the brim with self-deprecating humor. Those who poo-pooed u0026quot;Red Cloveru0026quot; (sorry, but thatu0026#39;s the title that flashes on the screen in the movie that I have) obviously didnu0026#39;t u0026quot;get itu0026quot;. Quips such as u0026quot;Itu0026#39;s like Iu0026#39;m trapped in some bad monster movie and I canu0026#39;t get out.u0026quot; are so up-front and obvious about that, Iu0026#39;m amazed anyone DIDNu0026#39;T get it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s unfortunate that the somewhat abrupt and anticlimactic ending is the last youu0026#39;ll experience of the movie, and what youu0026#39;ll likely remember most, but the rest of the movie, the first 99% of it, is well worth the time spent in giving this little gem a go.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFirst, take the movie for what it is: a fun horror-comedy that pokes fun of itself with some biting humor. Second, donu0026#39;t expect the antagonist to be the Lucky Charms dood (whou0026#39;s creepy in his own right, granted), but more Pumpkinhead instead. Keep those two points in mind, and you should love and appreciate this flick as much as I do.”
