"The 'Burbs"

It’s Back to the ‘80s Again! this week at Trailer from Hell, with director Ti West introducing Joe Dante’s horror-comedy “The ‘Burbs,” starring Tom Hanks.

Director Dante is fond of quoting the New York Times review that stated “The Burbs is as empty as a movie can be without actually creating a vacuum”. But over the years this odd ensemble piece, shot in sequence due to a concurrent writers’ strike, has developed a hardy cult following of fans who can quote the (often improvised) dialog verbatim. Notable as the last film appearance of macabre performance artist Brother Theodore (Gottlieb).
