I don't care what others think, it gave me nightmares., 13 February 2000
Author: BigBubba from Innis, LA.

I was only twelve when I saw this movie but lord it scared the bejesus out of me, I had nightmares for weeks. I have not seen the movie since then and do not care too. It has already stunted my growth and scarred me psychologically; so, I had better not read any follow up reviews calling me BigBlubberer, BigDummy, or some such demeaning name or they may be making a belated sequel. Thank God Jamie Lee Curtis wasn't around for this movie. My young heart couldna' stood it.
