One of my favorites....and how I introduced my daughter to Tim Burton. She's been a huge fan ever since.

I've seen 11 of these and I suspect bits and pieces of some others. I own a few others on DVD I haven't got around to watching yet.  I really enjoyed Beetlejuice (recall how popular that really was), Child's Play, Halloween 4, They Live, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and Pumpkinhead.

The only movie I know I saw in the theater was Beetlejuice. I remember seeing it with my parents. I'm sure my grandmother let me watch some of the others on home video with her at some point.

I think I saw at least half of those when they came out and I enjoyed each and every one.

    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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
