    It pains me to admit it but my brother and I used to love this movie as kids; I dread to think how many times we must've watched a crappy VHS copy taped off the TV. Featuring likes of Joe Don Baker, George Kennedy, Charles Napier and Stella Stevens, you find yourself wondering how the producers of this puerile horror spoof managed to assemble a better-than-adequate cast, but you have to remember that this was the era of <I>Airplane</I> and there was money to be made in puerile spoofs. Unfortunately for all concerned, they had to be good though, and while <I>Wacko</I> occasionally hits the mark with a decent gag, more often than not it misses. Joe Don Baker is funny as a slobbish police detective obsessively hunting the so-called Lawnmower Killer who terrorised a prom night thirteen years before, but his character becomes secondary as the story progresses and the film sags in the latter half as a result. Fans of <I>National Lampoon's Class Reunion</I> (assuming there are any) might want to check it out but anybody else can live without this.
