Popcorn is one of those films that I'm surprised actually got released. It's production issues were insane, as the lead actress was replaced 3 weeks into production with Jill Schoelen taking over. Then the director Alan Ormsby was also replaced after directing the three films within the film, with Porky's actor turned director, Mark Herrier. Subplots of the film ended up getting cut, one of them involving actual Popcorn (I'm thinking that the popcorn was like cultist kool-aid for the final scene), and famed actor Ray Walston appears for no other reason than to get a montage started. Still, Popcorn is one hell of a fun ride, with some great practical effects and killer throwbacks that any horror fan can enjoy.
