The Hudson Brothers and a variety of familiar faces star in this hilarious murder mystery spoof. In the tradition of Scary Movie, HYSTERICAL parodies horror films such as Dracula, Amityville Horror and The Exorcist, as well as classics like Jaws and Raides of the Lost Ark. In the spirit of Airplane!, this fast-moving laugh fest also boasts plenty of physical comedy, farce, satire, Marx Brothers style-wordplay and outrageous mucsical numbers.

Particularly fun is seeing well-known stars pop up in roles that parody their own media images like femme fatale Juli "Catwoman" Newmar as Venetia, a sexually frustrated ghost who seeks revenge on an entire resort town, and Richard Kiel, the gigantic, metal-mouthed "Jaws" in The Spy Who Loved Me, as Captain Howdy, her love slave. Other celebrities in off-the-wall supporting roles include Bud Cort (Harold and Maude) as a mortician, Murray Hamilton (Jaws) as the shark-phobic mayor, comedian Charlie Callas as count Dracula and sophisticated sex Sympol Cindy Pickett as the sheriff's innocent daughter.

With a genre as ripe for parody as horror, can this entertainig film- filled with zombies, an ominous lighthouse, a curse, possession, human sacrifice and a brain-twisting mystery - be anything but HYSTERICAL?

Dieser Film liegt uns bereits vor. Leider sind wir noch nicht dazu gekommen, ihn uns anzusehen und ein Review zu schreiben.

Bitte habt noch ein wenig Geduld!
