Dedicated to all things spooky and Halloween-centric in Southern Oregon, this blog is
your one-stop reference for horror-themed events and attractions, movie and music
reviews, toy, costume, and prop information, and of course the occasional rant
by our staff of undead lunatics. We slave away day and night (well, mostly
night) to bring you, the horror and haunt fan, the best of the beast in ghastly
fun here in Southern Oregon!

Family Fright Pick Number Two... Ernest Scared Stupid

Ernest Scared Stupid
Touchstone Pictures
Directed by John Cherry

Next up in our series of family frights is the 1991 movie Ernest Scared Stupid. When I have recommended this movie to people in the past I’ve mostly just been laughed at.  However, I really do enjoy this movie and think it’s a fun watch this time of year.  I used to enjoy the Hey Vern, Its Ernest! television program as a kid, but Scared Stupid is the only film I've seen of the Ernest franchise.  Therefore, I cannot speak to the quality of the rest of them, but this film is definitely worth a watch, especially when you need a good horror fix that is family safe.  The film is rated PG but there are a few jump scare type moments and some scenes that may be a bit too scary for tiny ghouls and boos so beware.  All in all though, this is a lighthearted family movie with enough chuckles and chills to make it on my yearly watch list.
