goofy but fun
28 August 2005 | by (north carolina) – See all my reviews

my mom loved this movie, and would watch it all time when i was growing up. to me it was just another goofy horror film. recently i went to visit my mom and she had me watch it again, as we were planning to visit onyx cave in Arkansas where the movie was filmed. i must say i had a great time watching it again, and visiting the cave we asked about the movie, the man behind the counter pulled out an old photo album with pictures from when they made the movie. i just had a blast. what a fun movie! i must say if you don't like old goofy horror, then this is not the movie for you. going to see where it was filmed gave me a new respect for it.
