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.

I wanted to like this so much more than I did. A lame duck DTV schlocker from the horror dead-zone of the early 90s that never quite gets its disparate genre elements to gel. Too grim to amuse and too silly to scare. Clint Howard does good work, but one wonders what the heck Olivia Hussey did to deserve this film.
First half is a masterclass that could easily fit into "Tales from the Crypt" or trashy first class Stephen King adaptation that was never written. Unfortunately, second half relies too much on chase scenes that by the end become tedious. Practical effects are top notch and Clint Howard puts his heart into the performance. Still, it's better love letter to the 80s kids horror than most of the contemporary efforts.
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.
