MCH Kid’s Halloween Movie List Day 17: The ‘Burbs

The ‘Burbs is such an awesome comedy from 1989. This is one of the last roles Tom Hanks had in this genre before he moved on to more dramatic roles and became our generation’s Jimmy Stewart.

Ray and his male neighbors believe their new neighbors, the Klopeks, are part of a Satanic cult, and have killed their older neighbor Walter. This leads to several mishaps and ends up with Ray blowing up the Klopek house. In the end, are they really evil, or was it all in Ray’s head?

Hanks and the late, great Carrie Fisher are the perfect suburban couple and play these parts to a T.

The crew investigating the Klopek’s also well cast, with Corey Feldman turning in a killer turn as the stoner kid across the street.

And I don’t know who drew this, but it was on Pinterest and is totally awesome.

This movie is more comedy than horror, but there are horror elements and it deals with Satanic cults and a serial killer. Scary enough in my book, and worth a watch this season.

Happy Viewing!
