Just a quick reminder that I will be at Revfest at Rev Coffee in Smyrna this Saturday.
So far, I’ve put up some good horror movies, and one book. It is always good to break the tension just to let your nerves relax. This reason is why I’m giving you a goofy, great from the early 90’s: Ernest Scared Stupid. If you’ve never seen the Ernest films, then you should check out the earlier ones from Touchstone (Ernest Goes to Camp, Ernest Goes to Jail, & Ernest Saves Christmas). Jim Varney does a great job as our favorite fool, know what I mean Vern.
In this Halloween adventure, we find out that his family was cursed to grow ever dumber because they imprisoned a troll. In classic fashion Ernest releases the troll, unwittingly of course, and finds that he is the only one that can stop it. The troll in this actually scared me as a kid, so it may be too intense for younger viewers, but the makeup effects are pretty good. Also, Eartha Kitt turns in a fun performance as an old woman thought by many to be a witch, but she alone can help Ernest confront the troll army. This might be a fun one to watch with the family as opposed to some of the R-rated films I’ve posted so far. Click on the picture below to pick up a copy and read on for the synopsis.
Synopsis: Everybody’s favorite know-it-all, Ernest P. Worrell, scares up heaps of hilarious laughs in this frightfully funny comedy! The loveable lunkhead is in for a devil of a time when he accidentally unleashes an evil demon from its sacred tomb, causing the awakened foe to go on a devastating rampage. Ernest desperately attempts to prevent the destruction of town, but a 200-year-old curse renders Ernest Scared Stupid! And that’s when the fun and adventure begin! Loaded with uproarious hilarity, and a host of outrageously kooky characters, this big-screen treat delivers off-the-wall nuttiness that’s sure to drive you wild any time of the year!
