When Billy (Zach Galligan) breaks the cardinal rules for the keeping of his rare new pet — no water, no food after midnight and no bright light — chaos is unleashed in his idyllic small town. What was once cute and fuzzy-wuzzy transforms and multiplies into a horde of dangerous, mayhem-loving creatures. With Hoyt Axton, Phoebe Cates, Dick Miller, Corey Feldman and Glynn Turman.

Dick Miller came to Hollywood in the mid-1950s as an aspiring writer but soon became one of the movies’ busiest character actors, with more than 175 film roles and more than 2,000 television appearances to his credit.

Augmented by animation and hundreds of rare clips, this upbeat look at the irreverent performer shows just why “that guy’s in everything!”
