“Nobody knocks off an old man in my neighborhood and gets away with it.” 🦴
It’s about time I watched the darkly comedic, wildly fun and unforgettably quotable cult classic that is The ‘Burbs!
The actual cinematic depiction of it’s a small town everyone knows everything about everyone in all of its suburban paranoid glory. Convinced their new neighbors are in a satanic cult, Ray and Art are set on proving their theory right and it helps when another neighbor suddenly goes missing!
They sure don’t make movies like this anymore! From that Tom Hanks nightmare sequence to that quirky Jerry Goldsmith score (holy shit!) to Corey Feldman explaining to Tom Hanks about the film The Sentinel which would put anyone in the mood for some gates of hell goodness.
I’d say The ‘Burbs feels like an extended episode of The Twilight Zone, the only thing missing was Rob Serling’s introduction. Loved this and all of its homey antics.
