Its an eccentric story which is not for everyone. Its got its moment's which are pretty well put together and are strange. It always knows what it is from the start. An eccentric dark satire piece. The purpose of the unorthodox music put together in some scenes makes it even more odd. And thats the point.
I think that many of the less than stellar reviews of this movie were expecting something VERY different than what they saw; Is it a comedy? A horror movie? A murder mystery?
What it IS is a dark, dark comedy / farce. So many great lines, so many twisted ideas - and Randy Quaid is at his epic strange best. So if you like odd dark comedies, it really doesn't get much better than this.
Release during the height of politically-aware paranoias social horrors like They Life and Society. Parents doesn't leave as memorable impression. It never knows what it truly is, horror, comedy or a coming of age.
i actually really liked the unsettling feeling this movie gives you; it's weird. but overall it's not that great of a story. the dad's tantrum at the end didn't make sense to me & the grandparents were too predictable. i'm not sad i watched it but i wouldn't want to watch it again.
a true film. great shots and a Erie feeling
I give this a 87/B+.
Another dreadful black comedy has a boy discovering his parents are cannibals using human meat secured from the father's job at the morgue for meals.
It's not gonna go down as a classic, but there is some fun to be had.
Structurally, quite a conventional horror, but elevated by its quirky style and performances - maybe a dash of social commentary in there as well at a push.
