Haunted Honeymoon
  

Year: 1986
Directed By: Gene Wilder

Radio personalities Larry Abbot (Gene Wilder) and Vickie Pearle (Gilda Radner) are stars of a mystery show. Since they announced their engagement, Larry has been plagued by speech problems and, seeking out an unconventional cure, he returns to his boyhood home, a mansion in the countryside, bringing Vickie along. Larry reunites with numerous family members, including the flamboyant Aunt Kate (Dom DeLuise), but discovers that there are sinister things afoot within the walls of the creepy estate.

This movie is one of my guilty pleasures. Why guilty? Well, because really – it’s not very good… as a horror or comedy. This is the kind of silly spoofing that Abbot and Costello made famous in their time, and really, it doesn’t hold up. The gags are corny, the plot is fairly rediculous, and with all due respect, the acting was hammy. However, they seemed to have a fun time making the movie, and some times that’s what counts.

Today’s kids might find it humorous.
