Never Turn Your Back...
9 October 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Wow, this movie is one of the classic scare films I remember from my youth. We all know the tale as it is described, however the real lesson in this movie is never turn your back. Indeed, in the world of 80's horror, fright was all about atmosphere and scares; there was some gore, but nothing relative to the realism you find in the CSI's on TV. In 80's horror, the serial killer and the psycho were one and the same; there was no method to their madness- anyone and everyone could be their next victim. This was the era of "He Knows You're Alone."

In the movie theatre, in the comfort of your own home...even with a secure door between yourself and your attacker, you are never safe because he knows...you're alone.
