Absolure classic, a staple in the genre. Even after dozens and dozens of viewings over the years, it is still great and very effective!
One of the GREATEST horror movies of all time and the one that ignighted the slasher genre of my childhood
Fantastic movie. Easily the best in the whole franchise no other movie in the franchise will ever be better than this movie.
Absolute classic. If you think most slashers are trashy you haven't seen this. The music is great and our infamous killer is perfect in his simplicity. And hey it's still pretty darn scary.
