Quotes

James Reeger: [very bad-boy, looking her over] So you and your old man, you're not afraid of them gar-things, huh?
Diana Boley: [cooly, looking back] Gargoyles are a scientific fact. And they're no more dangerous than a high school drop-out on a motorcycle.

Diana...
8 April 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

OK... In this day and age of CG graphics and $100M budgets, some would say this movie wouldn't stack up. Of course most of us who have seen it love it for its nostaglic value and some very genuine scares. It always seemed to come on really late at night (was that on purpose?) and I remember at least once watching it when I was about 10 years old at our neighbors lake house when I was the only one awake and there was a nice storm going on outside. All I can say is that I jumped a number of times that night and although I've seen plenty of horror films since, I'd probably still jump during this one today. Hopefully I'll get to see it again, if not just to hear the lead gargoyle say "Diana" in that metallic, evil-sounding voice.
