I watched it again a year or so back recorded from Sky something or other (don't think it was the Horror Channel as the picture quality was actually decent ). I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, first having seen it as a teenager. The black humour worked more for me this time around, I think. I certainly would be interested in the Arrow disc

Notable also at the time of course for the deliberate casting of Wendy Robie and Everett McGill, who were freshly famous as an on-screen couple from Twin Peaks. Both really let perverted panto villainy fly with gleeful gusto!

Think my favourite line in the film goes along the lines of;

"Your dad's one sick mother. Actually, your mother's one sick mother too.. ".

Great film and will pick up... but probably on a 2 for 15 offer, in a few months time.

Loved this film when I was younger! Must have known the whole script off by heart in the end. One of my favourite bits is when the dad is trying to find Fool when he's in the walls and he breaks through a wall and shouts "gunna kill yooo!" In a really dopey voice. That line became a running joke between me and my mates for years! Might dig out my DVD copy to watch tomorrow night now.

I was just going to post about this very line!!!!! We used to repeat in exactly the same way. That's so ace, because it's a bit of an obscure one really. I thought we might be the only ones who did it!

Nice to know we weren't the only ones who spent hours shouting that at each other at the most inappropriate times!

i still have this film on vhs recorded from bbc in 1999. I used to love how cool the house was. so many little doors to get inside and run around between the walls.
