In this, the poor mans Gremlins, some eighties audience members from top of the pops inherit a house, and have a party, which includes the bloke from police academy 3, but with all parties, they go into a room where they haven't been before and find a symbol on the floor.
It turns out that years ago, one of the members of Duran Durans project Power station was a devil or something worshipped, and made weird latex animals pop up from nowhere, and also made his eyes go blue.
The new family start to become obsessed with the past and decide to wear even funnier clothes than they had in the eighties, and act like goths for no reason.
And thrown into the mix, we get two midgets who act like Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson, and fight with the monsters.
In the eighties, these films were rife and were released almost every other week. But for some reason, this really became a cult favourite, and for the life of me, I cannot begin to think why.
The effects are awful, the acting is very bad, and the story, just doesn't excite or stimulate.
It's trying to be Gremlins, and that movie is a bona-fide cult favourite, because it's actually brilliant and highly original.
This is just bad..
