This is the best movie of all time!!
12 October 2003 | by (Dunlow,West Virginia) – See all my reviews

I was only one year old when this movie came out and I saw it. It has stuck with me completely throughout the years, and will always for the rest of my life. The movie in itself was fantastic, funny, scary, you name it, this movie has it! It got me hooked on horror movies for life, and still remains my favorite movie of all time. The thing I remember most about it was the fantastic music, and that beautiful 1956 cadillac. I love this movie, and I have been unable to find a copy of it anywhere and it is never on tv anymore..it breaks my heart because i miss this movie so much! My opinion on this movie is, once you see it, it will stick with you forever!, It is a great fantastic movie for the whole family to enjoy. No nudity, no profanity, just clean cut humor for everyone. I highly reccomend it.
