This is one of those films that makes me crazy.

The elements are all there...comedy, horror, cool fx, an interesting premise... but this one never really clicked with me.

I'm gonna have to lay this one at the feet of the actors. MJ Fox is so likable and benign that you never believe that he Could have killed his own wife (like the townsfolk think)

And Jake Busey plays the whole movie like a cartoon character - and it sort of takes me out of the film.

Don't get me wrong, I like it, but don't love it.
