Another decent horror comedy! This one even has John Raztenberger (Cliff from Cheers) as the drummer of a rock band (Ivan and the Terribles)! The plot is simple, Farmer Vincent makes delicious sausage....what it's made out of is another story! Farmer Vincent lives with his creepy sister Ida and together they trap folks and well I shant spoil the rest. It's amusing on many levels and the story is pretty fun too. The only real downer is that the middle part is sort of a long weird romance that doesn't make any sense, but at least the end rectifies the situation. Definitely worthwhile and recommended though, the good definitely outweighs the bad and there are some classic moments here!
