Two skeptical reporters are sent to Transylvania to find the Frankenstein monster - or get fired. They are laughed at there but something suspicious is going on - maybe there are monsters, vampires, mummies and werewolves.

A twisted take on "Little Red Riding Hood", with a teenage juvenile delinquent on the run from a social worker travelling to her grandmother's house and being hounded by a charming, but sadistic, serial killer and pedophile.
Red powder from a nuclear explosion gives a police officer super powers as long as he doesn't see anything red. He is eventually framed for murder and is unsuccessfully executed by many different methods.
The new sequel finds Burt Gummer, who's dying from Graboid poison, and his son Travis at a remote research station in Canada's Nunavut Territory, where they must go up against a new batch of Graboids to save Burt's life.

I foresaw a decent comedy...but it sure wasn't this one! (spoilers)
This had the potential to be a great, dumb 80s comedy perfect for your lazy afternoon viewing. You had the cast for it--John Laroquette and Bronson Pinchot--and a stupid plot: a detective agency that uses an eccentric psychic to solve crimes. But either there was just not enough stupid humor, or there was too much technical detail about the crimes they were solving, that detracted from this potential and the result is anything but funny.
The story involves the psychic, a scientist, a detective, a fender bender and a missing Cardinal. I have to give credit to Bronson Pinchot, though, who actually did make me laugh a few times with his strange psychic practices and acid tongue alter-ego Marty. John Laroquette, on the other hand, seems to be reluctant to break out of his monotoned cynicism, making this more like John Laroquette as John Laroquette.
Even myself, a fan of dumb 80s comedies would say, you're not missing much if you pass on this one.
