    Johnny Depp lounging around all day, taking couch naps in his ratty bathrobe while he neglects his responsibilities in life is a whole mood.

    You know what? This movie absolutely rules. I woke up today on the complete wrong side of the bed, and was in a hell of a mood, so I sullenly put this on, and let me tell you: Stephen Macht is the cure for all your troubles in life. By the time Warwick is down in the sub basement, wild eyed and half mad as he smears grease from a bottle onto his face , I was laughing my ass…

    Oh baby is this a big ole doink of nostalgia. God knows how many times I rented this one back in the Hollywood Video days, no doubt carried to the register along with the Black Xmas remake and whatever tepid swill appeared in the shelves that week, probably The Tripper or, like, Snoop Doggs Hood of Horror; like an unceasing garbage disposal I absolutely devoured whatever trash I could get my hands on, and let me tell you all that…

    Saw Fred Ward died. I was like, “damn; I loved that dude.” Then since I couldn’t find Remo Williams, I put on this bad boy instead.

    Look, stop reading now if you’re looking for anything new under the sun (see what I did there?!) regarding this movie. Much like the town it’s set in, this movie is perfection for me. Fun, thrilling, funny as all…
