"Munchies" Is Released
Munchies is a 1987 horror film starring Harvey Korman, Charles Stratton, and Nadine Van der Velde.
Clearly inspired by the success of Gremlins, the film features a remarkably similar plot line. It spawned two sequels, Munchie and Munchie Strikes Back, which possess no relation to the original save the title. These two films dealt with an impish wish-granting creature named Arnold.
Harvey Herschel Korman (February 15, 1927 – May 29, 2008) was an American comedic actor who performed in television and movie productions beginning in 1960. His big break was being a featured performer on The Danny Kaye Show, but he was probably best remembered for his performances on the sketch comedy series The Carol Burnett Show and in the comedy films of Mel Brooks, most notably as Hedley Lamarr in Blazing Saddles.
