Still remember this movie!
6 August 2001 | by (Texas (Ca native)) – See all my reviews

Judging by the other user comments I'm not the only one who saw this movie only once and still can't forget it. I was probably about five when I saw this and I can still vividly recall scenes from the movie. (It seems like a lot of us who have commented on this movie saw it at an impressionable age; I wonder if that's why it has stayed with us all for so long?)

I would love to find this thing on tape or catch it on television some night. Bring back some of those wonderful willies that so easily came in the 70's thanks to movies like Chill Factor, Trilogy of Terror, Gargoyles and countless others.
