It's amazing how well this one has withstood the test of time. At least 80 % of the SFX still hold up to this day. Sure, that means that 20 % doesn't, but come on. It was made in 1982.
I first watched this sometime in the 80s, and it was a lot scarier then. Not really scary at all now, but still remains a great Sci Fi movie. With just a slight touch-up this one could have been re-released today, and blown a lot of contemporary movies away.
For me this is simply the best horror movie ever made. Truly epic film. 10/10
I remember seeing this in the theater when it first came out. People actually got up and walked out. (Like that happens today...) Classic John Carpenter...
True 80's horror sci-fi Greatness, i have watched this one many times and will many more i highly recommend it fan of the genre or not if you haven't seen this one yet for some reason your missing out.
@BrightonMatt You should,or read the book.Playedf the game on PC last year,was as good as the movie surprisingly.Now got spammed 3 time of my comments...
Such a good movie! I think I should rewatch it... The game on PS2 was fun to play too.
@BrightonMatt All hail Rob Bottin!!!
A masterpiece of paranoia-fueled suspense and a must see for anyone looking for a crash course in horror films.
@lovelostking I liked this remake of the classic film of the same name from the 50's. James Arness (Gunsmoke) played the original monster in the 50's film.
