Poor Gregory. After being released from the Wishing Well Sanatorium, all he wants to do is make the children happy. So Gregory reopens the old ice cream factory, and all the unappreciative brats are reprocessed into the flavor of the day.

Finally, a movie for anyone who's ever found Clint Howard creepy and can't quite explain why. Shame about the execution, though. To his credit, Clint acts circles around the rest of the cast (including a slumming David Warner as a Reverend), and there is one kind-of-effective sequence where the two actors (badly) playing cops visit Clint's character's old mental hospital.
