Love the classics
One of the best action movies I’ve ever seen; now I need a way to watch this and Escape from LA back to back.
John Carpenter, along with many of his favorite actors, favorite producer Debra Hill, and favorite fellow musician Alan Howarth, nails it again.
Absolute Classic! That into theme song alone gets you all pumped up.
