I couldn't even enjoy my popcorn due to scenes of an old woman with no teeth sucking several times on a persons chin (this was suppose to be some sort of attack i think), the best and only good thing about this movie was the credits. 4.

This has the frenzied attacks, and general spookiness, but at one point a demon-possessed chap floats menacingly around, then does a little jig for comedy purposes.
