Simultaneously, an elderly Dr. Van Helsing (Rod Steiger) arrives from Europe, on the trail of the bloodsuckers. SHRUNKEN HEADS, 1994, Full Moon, 86 min. Richard Elfman directs from a screenplay by the notorious Matthew Bright (FREEWAY). Tommy and his pals Bill and Freddie videotape local gangbangers The Vipers stripping a car, something the delinquents don’t take kindly to, especially after the tape is turned in to the cops.
