Zombie Take-Out Episode 306: The Torgo Next Door

The Burbs Scotto and Uncle John once again kick the year off with a tribute episode, this time to the late, great Carrie Fisher, by discussing a movie that borrows from many other films including Rear Window, Neighbors and maybe even Manos The Hand of Fate, but doesn't really live up to any of them and can not even be saved by Joe Dante and a cast that, in addition to Fisher, includes Tom Hanks. Bruce Dern and even Henry Gibson. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1989, The Burbs. Was too much of it improvised? Were Ray and Art supposed to seem like kids? Could Hans have seemed any more like Torgo? What exactly were the Klopek family doing in their basement?
