subliminally touched a generation
4 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

its funny reading these comments before me. Today I was wondering the IMDb and found horror recommendations and one was don't go to sleep. His description was,,,,good 80s t.v. horror movie of a little girl who gets revenge from beyond the grave. And from that I just knew that was the movie i was looking for from my youth. I'm 28 years old now and this movie seems to have stuck with other 28 year olds as well. I feel like we are part of the elm street kids or something because the only thing I remembered from this movie too was the "pizza cutter" scene and the shoelaces tied together. I remember I saw it more than once when it was on t.v. too. Ill ask this of the other 26-30 year olds that saw this back when,,,,,do you remember the "go see cal" commercials,,,,,didn't it sound like something else? I think its almost scary in itself that so many of us of the same age remember exactly the same things from the movie. don't go to sleep indeed.
