Five neighbors in a typical American suburb grow wary when their new neighbors, the Klopeks move in next door.  The Klopeks isolate themselves from other homeowners, and are rarely seen.  When they do appear it is under suspicious circumstances. 

In one troubling incident the neighbors witness Hans Klopek (Courtney Gains) place a large garbage bag into his trunk -- that appeared to have something moving inside.  On another occasion the cul-de-sac's residents observe the Klopeks digging in their backyard during a rainstorm.  The neighborhood's curiosity has been piqued, and they eventually break into the family's home in search of answers.

The 'Burbs was a commercial success, garnering $49 million -- easily recuperating its $18 million budget.
