My Thoughts:

I really enjoy watching horror movies from the 70s and 80s just to remember how things used to be when I was younger but besides that this was a pretty decent movie. Think I enjoyed it ore cause I didn’t have it figured out in the first 30 seconds like most horror movies. Love the hair styles and clothes by the way.
