House of Horrors Oberhausen Fall 2017, Oberhausen, Germany



Liv is an 80s kid and Courtney played in a lot of cool 80s and 90s movies. Among them is "The 'Burbs". This movie is one of Liv's favorites and she can dream this movie. Courtney plays the role of Hans Klopek in "The 'Burbs" and whenever Liv and her brother are talking about or watching this movie (they do that a lot) one of Hans' lines keeps coming back. When Rumsfield (played by the wonderful Bruce Dern) asks Hans if the girl in the photo is a friend of him, he answers:  "No, it came with the frame". If you ever saw the movie, you'll know what line that is. Well, back to House of Horrors: Liv had been repeating that line for the entire weekend (much to Carola's frustration haha). So she had to have a talk with him. She gave Courtney a present and had a little talk with him. Later on he even agreed to record a video, where he says the line....Such a great guy!
