Although it's an 80s horror movie and suffers from a lack of overall scares, it does have some redeeming qualities that can help you make it through the 92 minutes. However, I also want to point out that most of these redeeming qualities take place in the first half of the movie. The second half is just silly and full of bad horror movie cliches. *Looking at you, girl who just stands there screaming for a full 20 seconds while danger is VERY SLOWLY coming towards you. YOU CAN RUN IN ANY FREAKING DIRECTION, JUST GO!!* I would be giving this a 2 out of 5, but I'm only cutting it some slack because it's from the 80s. I mean, what did you expect?
I kind of enjoyed this. I read that it was inspired by 'Phantasm', but I also saw elements of Tober Hoopers version of 'Salem's Lot'. Shows what you can do with what I'm assuming was a relatively low budget. The ending is retarded.
Not bad for a 1980 movie. Not scary by any means, but a good watch nonetheless.
Really decent moxie. It's actually better than the newer prequel. Good story that keeps you engaged.
