The 'Burbs (1989)

Ray Peterson lives in a seemingly ordinary suburban neighborhood who takes the week off to just relax and not have to stress out over anything. But his vacation is anything but stress-free as he becomes more and more suspicious of his mysterious new neighbors next door, The Klopeks. They never go in, they never come out, they don't get any visitors or deliveries, and late at night Ray hears noises coming from their basement. He, along with his fellow suburbanites Art and Mark decide to do a little snooping on them. Then when their other neighbor Walter disappears, Art has a theory that the Klopeks are satanists and that Walter is their human sacrifice. My favorite Tom Hanks film; an hilarious black comedy that makes fun of the suburbs and their crazy inhabitants. Starring Tom Hanks, Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, Rick Ducommun, Wendy Schaal, Corey Feldman 7/10
