Stanley Coopersmith gets picked on by students and teachers alike at the military academy. They call him names like "Cooper-dick" and throw his hat out of the window. And I can't say I blame them. His bumbling antics and constant petrified "why me?" expression makes it virtually impossible not to whip his chubby behind with a wet towel. When stuck with basement cleaning duty, he comes across a mysterious book that gives him the strength to stand up for himself by awakening an evil spirit named Esteban. Esteban appears through his Intellivision-like computer and starts meting out revenge.
This is one of those movies where I started off wearing a good-natured, optimistic smile on my face. It soon spiraled down to the point where I felt ashamed of myself for watching this garbage to the bitter end. 3rd rate Carrie knockoff.
