    I wanted to like it and appreciated the effects, dream sequences and use of the undead but I found it neither funny (thanks to the very stilted delivery of the lead) nor scary (thanks to the lack of any tension during any of the attack sequences). 6 years 5 months ago

    Manages to weave horror, humor, romance and drama together pretty deftly. Some very memorable sequences. Ignore the inane sequel. 9 years 8 months ago

    Cult classic that really holds its own, even 30 years later. Great entertainment with an eccentric mix of horror and bizarre humor. 8 years ago
