Did You Know?
I don't actually consider
to be a horror film--it's a supernatural suspense movie. Horror is such a huge topic that has slasher films and other horrible crap attached to it and I'm not a fan of that stuff at all. I like something that gets you thinking and "The Entity" was certainly that kind of film...
Stanley Kubrick was a big fan of The Boys in Company C (1978) and cited Sidney J. Furie's war movie as the direct inspiration for Full Metal Jacket (1987). Many critics have identified similarities between the two films including, not least of all, the casting of R. Lee Ermey who plays Marine Drill Instructor Sergeant Joyce in Furie's film and Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Kubrick's.
