Great film from the 70's
9 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

I first saw this film when I was around 13 years old and I STILL love it today. Yes, it is slow in some spots but its a great film nonetheless. I am a FIRM believer that Wes Craven was inspired by this film when he wrote The Hills Have Eyes, even though he may not admit it.
