Written By: Dana Olsen

Directed By: Joe Dante

Starring: Tom Hanks, Carrie Fisher, Rick Ducommun, Bruce Dern, Corey Fledman, Wendy Schaal

Neighbors come and go all the time, right? Well, what do you do when those new neighbors move in? Tom Hanks’ Ray Peterson gets mighty suspicious.

You see, Ray lives in a normal surburban town. When he’s home from work on vacation, he watches the Klopeks move in. They’re a suspicious family and definitely don’t fit in with the current residents on the block. That must mean there’s something dark about him.

It’s certainly odd when neighbors start disappearing. Of course, the Klopeks must be murderers or vampires or something. Ray and his friends decide to figure out the secret. Of course, he needs ot get his wife and son away first to protect them.

This is just one of those dark comedies that absolutely never gets old. It’s Hanks before all his bigger movies and is often one of his most underrated performances ever. If you haven’t check it out yet, be sure to do so now that The ‘Burbs is on Amazon Prime Video free with your Prime membership.
