Plot: visions of a deceased girl and her clown doll bring doom to a teenager and her boyfriend.


Oh, this movie is so bad it’s good.  The acting is hit or miss depending on the situation.  I could tell you more about the plot, but what fun would that be.  Instead, I’ll tell you to watch it because it’s so-bad-it’s-good and then answer the following questions:

  1. Why does she just have tranquilizers??
  2. Why did the stolen clown doll make her evil?  Why not him??
  3. Why was the old guy trying to kill him?  And why did he hang himself??  Or did he hang himself???  Who hanged him???
  4. What are the rules exactly?
  5. And what is with that ending??

We recommend this movie with a drink and a friend and a bit of humor in your heart.

Our score: 36.
