It's a TV quality movie with TV stars. Katt plays another 'Great American Hero' helped by Norm from 'Cheers', Bull from 'Night Court', and Kay Lenz from 'Rich Man Poor Man'. It has moments of funny, but strangely not as good as 'House 2'.
A hoot from start to finish. Bill Katt is a surprisingly enjoyable screen presence and the monster designs are delightful, especially the witch! Not the best horror comedy of all time, but the cornball humor blended with a Vietnam PTSD storyline makes it bizarre, compelling, and highly unique.
I loved this movie as a young kid and it was fun revisiting this cooky and strange horror comedy. The acting is pretty good and Katt makes for a quite likeable protagonist. The effects are pretty hokey but still fun. The script is OK but the changes from horror to comedy to drama are not that competently handled. Uneven but with the right expectations you could have fun with this 80´s flick.
Horror comedy doesn't take itself serious and is a kind of a silly combination of "Poltergeist" and "The Shining". Some fun rubber monsters, dialogue and inventive ideas, but William Katt is a weak leading actor. With a better polish on the writing and directing this movie would have been a gem as the film would have been better if all the madness was left in the leading character's mind and he was truly deranged.
