Hi can anyone please help me cos this has been driving me mad -
I had a film on vhs from late 80s, maybe early 90s though don't think it was that recent. It was about a young man being bullied by a gang so he gets his revenge by rigging up an old house with illusions and tricks to scare them (think his uncle may have been a magician). The only other bits I remember are:
 - at one point he's holding a pencil between his fingers and shaking it so it looks wobbly!
 - the gang may have gatecrashed a party of some sort
 - his (uncle?) tells him "don't get angry, get even"
 - when inside the rigged house, the leader of the gang looks in a  mirror and his face looks scarred/disfigured.

Hope someone can put me out of my misery!! Twirling

It may be The New Kids from 1985.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089679/

Two orphaned teens go to live with their uncle, who owns an old carnival. They get terrorized by a local gang and at one point they get even in the way you describe.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
