I made a mental note of it so I could check it out, and when I found myself wanting to watch something short before bed I gave it a look (run time 1 hr, 7 min). It's a hilarious horror-comedy whose best character is played by African-American actor Mantan Moreland, which I'm sure was a little controversial at the time. Despite a bit of stereotyping he t"
