I was a pretty big horror buff before I saw this for the first time around 1986. I liked all the usual suspects- Friday the 13th, Nightmare on elm, Halloween, etc, and lots of the more obscure ones. This one, though....... I can watch this one any time, but can't hardly sit through any of the others. It literally took my desire away. I find them all stupid, now. This one's stupid as well, but it knows it's stupid, and works it to it's advantage.
