Night of the Dribbler (1990)

Sometimes these things defy all logic. The killer has a cartoon faced basketball for a head and he's killing off the Watergate Plumbers High School basketball team. Made in Canada (ehem).

As my good friend and noted film scholar, Bill Ackerman, told me:

"Much like Erich Von Stroheim's 'Greed', Orson Welles' 'The Magnificent Andersons', Roman Polanski's 'Cul-De-Sac' and Alejandro Jodorowsky's 'Santa Sangre', 'Night Of The Dribbler' is a noteworthy cinematic achievement that has so far eluded Netflix availability."

I'm in the wrong business.

I wonder how Fred Travalena shoe-horned his tired celeb impressions into the script?

fun info-tainment !!

I've never heard of Travalena but I'm going to research him based on your tip.

Please, many early Sunday mornings of sleeplessness led me to "Leprechaun 2: Back 2 da Hood" ... how are those a franchise? (I just answered that question, didn't I?)
