Manufacturer Description

It's a lovely day in suburbia where mild-mannered bachelor Harold Thompson (George Wendt of CHEERS) is gladly at work in his basement building the ideal household. When a young couple moves in nextdoor, Harold sets his sights on the attractive young wife (Meredith Monroe of DAWSON'S CREEK). In a sunshine world of picket fences and manicured lawns, is it ever possible to know what gruesome strategies are percolating in the minds of your next-door neighbors? Matt Keeslar (SCREAM 3, ROSE RED) co-stars in this grisly black comedy with a killer twist from Director John Landis (AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, ANIMAL HOUSE) and Writer Brent Hanley (FRAILTY). Features: Still Gallery Original Storyboards Audio Commentary showcasing writer Brent Hanley Director Bio Screenplay (DVD-ROM), Also on DVD Skin and Bones: The Making of Family Terror Tracks: Mastering the Family Score

John (An American Werewolf in London) Landis directed this blackly entertaining and gruesome story from the second season of the Masters of Horror anthology TV series about a lonely serial killer's search for the ideal Family. George Wendt offers the lion's share of the chuckles-- and the chills-- as an apparently regular suburbanite whose sweater-vest-and-groomed-lawn exterior conceals his real nature as a bloodthirsty murderer who kidnaps and butchers strangers in an effort to put together a flawless nuclear family; Meredith Monroe and Matt Keeslar are the next-door neighbors who capture his eye as possible brand-new additions. No stranger to mixing scary and humor, Landis' bloody blend is more effective than in his previous MoH outing, Deer Woman, thanks in part to the lead stars and writer Brent Hanley's script, which features one of the nastiest denouements this side of E.C. Comics. The DVD includes commentary by Hanley, making-of featurettes on the production and the rating, a still gallery, and the original script in DVD-ROM format. -- Paul Gaita
