    Ohhh, tough call. I love Munchies. Spookies is quite enjoyable. If you're a fan of cheesy low-budget 80's creature features this should be right up your alley. Its got some pretty good FX work and the acting is about as horrendous as you can get. I like it. And again, how can you go wrong with farting zombies?

    I saw this movie a long time ago. The cover to the Nomads tape box always reminded me of this movie for some reason.

    I was recently a guest on the Bloodbaths & Boomsticks podcasts and will be again in the future and those guys are always talking about Spookies. They love the film so much that they did a fan commentary for it along with some cast/crew interviews.

    You can check out the fan commentary, interview with actor Anthony Valbiro, and interview with FX artist/actor Al Magliochetti here

    You can listen to the interview with co-producer Frank Farel here

    The Vipco DVD is actually R0, not R2 as listed on the back case.

    Fun little flick.

    I knew there was a reason not to buy that recent DVD.

    Judging by that response that recent DVD release sold on diabolik is a bootleg imho. Given there's pristine film print available in the US and recent discovery uncovered of five cans of film negative labeled Spookies/Twisted Souls in a vault in the UK. Notice the ZERO mention of the so-called 2K transfer from a 35mm print recently released from a Canadian no name label.
