Halloween playlist #27 - Beware: Children At Play (1989)
I do have my limits when it comes to trashiness in movies. For example, Pink Flamingos is a movie I consider unwatchable. But this one is far from that level of tastelessness. It's silly, albeit half-baked, and takes its dumb premise and tries it's best to be at least relatively entertaining. I feel it pulled some punches and would've been better had Uncle Lloyd directed it himself, but beggars can't be choosers. I enjoyed it for what it is, though I doubt you'll be seeing it on any "best Troma movies" lists anytime soon. If it does, I suggest abandoning reading that particular list, because you can do much better.
