Directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins) and starring a young Tom Hanks, a quaint suburban neighborhood is sent into pandemonium when its inhabitants suspect their eccentric new neighbors are collecting corpses. Silly antics and oddball situations ensue as the over-the-top neighbors band together to prove the creeps next door are in fact killers. Complete with an excellent cast of characters portrayed by Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, and Brian Gibson, plus an excellent score from Jerry Goldsmith (Poltergeist), The 'Burbs is an excellent horror/comedy that satirizes the typical suburban lifestyle and the strange paranoia lurking within.
A suburbanite cancels his vacation trip to help keep watch on his creepy new neighbor. When a grouchy neighbor disappears the watch group descends on the suspect house.
