Excerpt: I loved this movie when I was 8. Nice to re-live a childhood favorite on Blu. The movie is ridiculous, but it's a fun way to spend an hour and a half. Just don't expect anything heavy or great. PQ was as expected - 3/5. Not terrible, but a little soft and not very detailed. Audio was only 2.0 so not spectacular.
Excerpt: After Ernest Scared Stupid's theatrical release, it's quality and box office return all but pointed in the direction of the franchise's inevitable leap towards the direct to video platform for all of it's future installments. While not on par with the best of the first three films in the series (Ernest Goes To Camp, Ernest Goes To Jail, Ernest Saves Christmas), Ernest Scared Stupid is cute and clever in it's own distorted little way.
Excerpt: The "Ernest" films were watched frequently in my childhood. I had a VHS tape of Ernest Scared Stupid that I had watched constantly throughout the years. Jim Varney is Ernest, the "Great Redneck Hope" in this family themed horror film. Ernest awakens an ancient troll hellbent on kidnapping children and turning them into wooden dolls. After he collects five, he can bring about his evil army to destroy the world.
Excerpt: This umpteenth screen appearance for Ernest P. Worrell has the bumbling handyman accidentally awaken an imprisoned troll a day before Halloween, leading to the creature going on a rampage through a small town. It's probably the most imaginative Ernest adventure and features appropriately gruesome creature effects by the Chiodo Brothers (who also created the Critters and the Killer Klowns from Outer Space).
