Pretty weird comedy horror
20 April 2008 | by GuineaPigSee all my reviews

This is a very low budget movie, about thirty minutes long. The story is about a dysfunctional crazy Jewish family who ends up stranded on a secluded cabin in the woods when they went out looking for a car the eldest son lost (yes that's how stupid he is). During the trip they come upon a crazy old lady lying on the road and they decide to take her with them.

Strange and funny things happen in the cabin that range from product commercials within the movie to a hilarious dream sequence that involves zombies and the old witch cooking the family's little insolent girl (who is doing her first communion even though she is Jewish) to a polka tune in a big pot, all with cooking instructions included.

It is a parody of the 50's sitcom Father Knows Best.
