Editorial Reviews

A teenage athlete named Stanley (Greg Calpakis, TV's COLD SQUAD) is a waterboy for a high school basketball team. Stanley wants to make the team, but the coach (TV funnyman Fred Travalena) rejects him as a worthless player and sends him away. Soon afterwards, the basketball team members are being killed off one-by-one by a psychopath wearing a maniacally smiling basketball over his head. Is Stanley the deadly dribbler with the basketball head looking for revenge, or could it be some other hoop-dream wannabe? Horror & comedy mix in this lost film directed by Jack Bravman who also made the horror cult-classic ZOMBIE NIGHTMARE (oh my!) Code Red is proud to have unearthed a print of this very rare unreleased film, recently found in a vault in Montreal. Never released anywhere in the world, NIGHT OF THE DRIBBLER will finally be unleashed on humanity!

Trusting the Code Red label; we pre-ordered this disk without knowing too much about the film. Of course; when it arrived - we eagerly popped it in - looking to find a horror comedy. What we instead received was a really poor spoof, with no gore and really no decent sight gags. Think of "Saturday the 14th Strikes Back" (but maybe worse).

The only reason it gets 2 stars for the obscurity of the material on the disk; and the fact they attempted to make it the best product possible (though the washed-out full frame transfer leaves quite a bit to be desired; we believe it's due to the age and rarity of the print).

Our advice: RENT IT (if really curious)

I would rate it zero stars but Amazon dont give you that option, DONT BUY IT,Slow very slow and just plain stupid!!! I see why it was never released, If you are looking for a slasher flick its not one, Its the worst attempt of a comedy that i have ever viewed. The jokes are plain stupid. Words cant describe how bad it is, It felt like ever watching this film, Code red i hope you only pressed a few hundred of thses because it should go back into the vault. You are gonna lose money putting out garbadge like this, Put out NIGHTMARES IN A DAMAGED BRAIN and DEATH WEEKEND, People want these titles, Not goofy films like this.
