It's Freaky Funhouse Friday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. Our feature was shot in Miami, Florida, due to the relaxed child labor laws, since most of the cast were young actors. Steven Spielberg asked Tobe Hooper to direct E.T. but he turned it down because he was working on this movie. He then worked with Speilberg on POLTERGEIST. Weird, Hooper and Speilberg look like they could be brothers! Dean Koontz wrote the novelization of the screenplay under the pseudonym, Owen West.
Eegah!! sent over this 'fun' little soundclip for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the funhouse freak, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's an earfull of... THE FUNHOUSE!
Elizabeth Berridge plays Amy, her shower's interrupted by her lil' brother who's wearing a mask and weilding a rubber butcher knife... A fun way to get a sneaky glimple of your hot sister in the nude! Welcome to the eighties.
Smoking pot was quickly becomming passe and considered a fairly normal activity in movies by now.
Cooper (SPACE COWBOYS) Huckabee plays high school jock, Buzz Dawson. Here he is getting ready to ring the bell and win a stuffed toy for Amy!
Some carnival art! Saw a cow with two heads at the Bakersfield Fairgrounds in the late sixties.
The gang checks out the hideous little dead baby freak in a jar.
Amy finds out some bad things when she gets her palm read.
Of course, it wouldn't be complete without the live show where the ladies can shake their stuff for the horny perverts like me!
Buzz and Amy blend right into the scenery. Nice gams!!
I can hear the narrator on the movie trailer... Have you ever made love, to a... Monster?!
The whole thing turns into a bloody mess, everyone except Amy gets mutilated one way or another, Buzz will be next.
The monster is the last one to get his, he's literally cut in half by two giant funhouse gears!!
