5.0 out of 5 stars ~~~~~ERNEST SCARED STUPID ON BLU-RAY!!!!!~~~~~~~ July 13, 2011
I am so glad to see Jim Varney on BluRay! This is a must for any Ernest Fan!! I hope Disney will release Ernest Saves Christmas on BluRay (Disney still owns the rights to the movie with Touchstone)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jim, RIP, creates memorable halloween character July 14, 2002
Ernest is the man.
I've been an Ernest fan since I was a diaper clad child.
He saved Christmas, went to school, went to camp, went to Africa, and neither last nor least was SCARED STUPID.
Long live Ernest P., though Mr. Varney is no longer with us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ernest Scared Stupid- It's So Funny, It's Scary! February 2, 2002
A Kid's Review
Format:VHS Tape
"Ernest Scared Stupid" is the sequel to "Ernest Goes to Jail" about the loony yet heroic Ernest P. Worrell at it again.
This time, he accindently frees Trentor the troll from his underground home. Freed, Trentor needs to seek five people and turn the into like-wooden dolls to free baby trolls and take over the Earth!
Can Ernest do what his forefather did years ago (trapping Trentor into the ground)? Watch "Ernest Scared Stupid" to find out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Childhood Favorite! August 12, 2008
As a child, I was scared of this movie because of the troll, Trantor looked scary. Now, I love it because it has Ernest and it takes place on Halloween, and I personally love Halloween!!! Ernest helps Kenny, Joey, and Elizabeth build a treehouse. However, the troll is buried under the tree and Ernest accidentally wakes him up. Throughout the movie, Ernest tries to defeat Trantor with 'Troll fighting technology' and miss Hackmore. Ernest finally figures out how to kill the troll. Trantor needs five children to awaken his troll children army. Kenny and his friends go to the grocery store and buy the supplies in order to kill Trantor. Ernest and Kenny fight the trolls at the treehouse with all the townspeople there. When all the trolls die, Trantor asks the evil demons of the tree to make him stronger. If you love Halloween and Ernest, you'll love ERNEST SCARED STUPID!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars More Innocent Than Stupid (Which Is A Good Thing) September 6, 2007
This was the first "Ernest" movie, I think, that I watched and I was surprised that it wasn't as stupid as I thought it was or the title convinced me it would be. Well, the last 20 minutes was, but a lot of movies get really dumb in the last half hour.

Most of it was nice, lighthearted fun that - cliché aside - is fun for the "whole family." There is nary a bad one word in this movie and it's old-fashioned slapstick and about as innocent as it gets.

In the last 30 years, how many comedies do you see without a tons of sex and profanity? Almost give "Ernest"his due.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so stupid October 31, 2012
This umpteenth screen appearance for Ernest P. Worrell has the bumbling handyman accidentally awaken an imprisoned troll a day before Halloween, leading to the creature going on a rampage through a small town. It's probably the most imaginative Ernest adventure and features appropriately gruesome creature effects by the Chiodo Brothers (who also created the Critters and the Killer Klowns from Outer Space). The production values are also quite good, but the kids are a little grating.

My only real complaint is the same thing that bugged with previous Ernest movies. Director John Cherry is so used to directing television and commercials that you can tell he's given every shot in the movie a maximum of two takes, giving everything a badly-rehearsed feel. Sounds like a petty grievance, but it would have made a difference to hone the acting a little more and tighten things up.

Probably not a Halloween classic, but it's hardly a time of year for family movies.

The Blu-ray looks great in 1.78:1 1080p but features plain-old Dolby 2.0 sound. There are no extras, not even a menu. But for a bargain bin Mill Creek release, it's still worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheese ball fun. September 15, 2011
By rmeese5
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
You get exactly what you expect out of this movie, old fashioned Ernest P. Worrel! If you looking for an award winning film, this is not it. This is not my favorite Ernest movie however it is alot of fun to watch as a "scary" Halloween movie with the kids.

A terrifying and terrific 'Ernest' moment in cinema history. Indeed, 'Ernest Scared Stupid', is rapidly becoming a neo-classic Halloween fairy-tale, featuring the clown-prince of modern slapstick -- the memorable Jim Varney. Though Jim Varney is sorely missed he will live forever within the very special films, like this one, that he presented to a world in dire need of something silly to muse over.


This is a really cute and highly enjoyable Halloween yarn that the entire family can appreciate without being inappropriate for the younger members of the family.

Jim Varney - Ernest P. Worrell
Austin Nagler - Kenny
Shay Astar - Elizabeth
Jonas Moscartolo - Trantor
Ernest Fosselius - Trantor the Troll [Voice]
Eartha Kitt - Old Lady Hackmore
Larry Black - Mayor Murdock
Jackie Welch - Teacher

HERE'S SOMETHING OF THE STORY LINE: [plot spoilers below]

200 years ago in Briarville an direct ancestor of Ernest saved the village from an evil troll and, after trapping, banished to the underworld deep beneath an oak tree which was then being planted.

That would have been the end of the story, as there was only one way for Trantor, the evil troll, to return to menace us on Earth. Essentially, Ernest, as the only decendant of the original Reverend Phinneaus Worrel was the only human who could bring the curse of Trantor back. There was a long list of things Ernest would have to do in order for Trantor to return, which included disturbing the roots of the now 200 year old oak tree, and reciting some old-english jibberish.
