A real heart-thumper, even 13 years after its release!

A real heart-thumper, even 13 years after its release!

I saw this when it first came out, and again on video-- same effect. This one keeps you on the edge of your seat! Even though it was released in 1987 it's still an excellent thriller for thriller-fans.
