Right off the bat we see Cliff friggin' Huxtable fall of a bridge and die at the hands of a crazed lunatic, Satan-worshiping taxi driver. Nice start (although it is still hilarious when Bill Cosby tells the driver he's his dark lord). And did I mention that his wife in the movie is already dead? Oh but don't worry kids, sure you're orphans... but Dad will be back to see you soon. Ominous much?For the rest of the film we get to watch the lovable Elliot Hopper (Cosby) try to maintain his career and family life, all without the benefit of a beating heart. And how you ask, does he communicate with the ones he's left behind in the world of the living? Easy, they can see him when the lights are turned off. That's a healthy concept to feed to children. As if there aren't enough pants-shitting possibilities in a child's imagination about what might happen when the lights go out. Needless to say, for the next year or so every time my parents put me to bed I was positive I was going to see Bill Cosby's dead ass standing over me as soon as they hit the switch.
So I must extend a huge thanks to Universal Pictures, because not only did you murder Bill Cosby, you brought him back to haunt me. Bravo.
