This is a great flick.  I saw it when I was about ten, I think, and it stuck with me after one veiwing that long ago.  My favorite line is referring to the fat woman eating the rat.  "It must have gave her the urge to regurge."

I remember when this movie came out on video.  A tie in comic book was released that I saw for about two nano seconds, haven't seen the movie though.  Looks cool to me.

In this movie there are three short, 1-minute long stories and two long, half-hour ones. The story of the woman going into a resteraunt and getting a chicken-fried rat, and the old lady who dries off her poodle in the microwave are both based on commonly-told urban legends. I hadn't heard of the story of the old man dying on an amusement park ride, but that is certainly something I could see happening.

The story of the monster in the school bathroom seems to me a hell of a lot like this one Stephen King short story,"Here There Be Tigers", which can be found in his book SKELETON CREW. In King's story, a little boy asks for permission in class from his mean teacher, Ms. Bird, if he can go to the bathroom so he can pee. The teacher lets him go, but when he gets there, he finds that somehow, someway a tiger has gotten at the far end of the bathroom and is lying in wait. The kid is unable to use the bathroom, and soon another kid from his class is sent to see what happened to him. That other kid is soon eaten. Then our protagonist, desperate to p**s, goes in a sink, and then Ms. Bird comes and sees him. She promises to punish him as soon as she fetches the other little boy...and then heads to where the tiger is.

The last story, about the kid with a bug obsession, I thought was pretty damn boring. It just took too long to really get going. However, I did think it was really cool when the kid has a dream that he turns on T.V. and sees an episode of CHARLES IN CHARGE where the main character is collecting bugs.

This movie speaks volumes about our society today!  Kids are smarter than their parents and teachers give them credit for.  Stories like this always have at least a germ of truth to them. They are the stories of legend handed down through the ages. It is a low budget film that could use some polish but I think if it had a bigger release back in the day, it would have inspired at least one sequel.

Me nad my friend saw this when we were like 5 0r 7. Were both eighteen right now and we finnally got the nerve to look it up again. It still scares the bejesus out of me. I can't even take a p**s in peace without the fear of a crap monster coming down from a vent and eating me. :teddyr:

Oh holy crap! This is one major stinker. I'd never seen this until about 7 months ago, when one of my friends showed it to me on V.H.S. My eyes will never forget the sight of the kid who played Donkeylips on Salute Your Shorts getting tortured by dudes in giant, poorly executed, house fly costumes.

Still, the one Goonies joke in the movie is friggin' hilarious!
