1988 - 87m.

Watchable mix of supernatural slasher and teen revenge flick has a family inheriting an old dilapidated Beverly Hills mansion only for the two teenage kids (played by Tom Breznahan and Jill Whitlow of Night Of The Creeps fame) to be harassed and beaten-up on by a nasty motorbike gang.

Seems though that the house is home to the ghost of a 30's actor (who commited suicide after being part of a love triangle) and said ghost starts to knock-off the gang in somewhat gory ways when they invade the house one evening.

This decent little B-movie from Roger Corman's Concorde is always entertaining, has a nice twist in the middle (involving a practical joke) and has likeable enough leads with a cool "dumb waiter" death and just plain awesome "shotgun" moment. Plus we even get Todd Bridges (of Diff'rent Strokes fame) in a bit role.

Check this one out.
