- Maturity Rating Reason
based on novel or book,
One man's quiet suburban life takes a sickening lurch for the worse when a young couple move into the deserted house next door. From the word go it is obvious these are not the quiet professional types who *should* be living in such a nice street. As more and more unbelievable events unfold, our hero starts to question his own sanity... and those of his family.

- Sex & Nudity
- Sex & Nudity Reason
- Some sexual topic are discussed. And brief sexual situations. For example Earl (John Belushi) walks in to his bedroom and Ramona (Cathy Moriarty) is fully nude (nothing seen but her back)
Earls daughter brings home edible panties, and Vic (Dan Aykroyd) suggestively comments on them.
Romona accuses Earl of trying to pork her and putting his hand in her bush. (its a lie)
- Violence & Gore
- Violence & Gore Reason
- mild slapstick violence including the house burning down and a car sinking into a swamp.
- Profanity Reason
- "Bastard" and "asshole" are used a few times.
Hells and Damns are used one or two used of shit
- Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
- Vic is seen with a cigar in a few scenes. People have wine with dinner.
- Frightening & Intense Scenes
- Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
- Its a dark comedy, and the setting is a little erie. Almost the whole movie occurs at night, and there's a swamp in the yard and voltage running through power lines. Dan Aykroyd's character is kinda psychotic. This should only bother young children, anyone else will find it funny.
