Synopsis

Ray is an ordinary guy living in a very ordinary neighbourhood. That is, until the mysterious Klopeks move in and some very strange goings-on begin. When Ray and his friends begin a spot of detective work it's not clear whether their suspicions are all in their head or if there really is something sinister going on. A darkly comic satire on American suburbia, The 'Burbs features parodies of some great Hollywood classics, including Hitchcock's Rear Window.
