Scary and awful.
21 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Parents, unless you want your child to have nightmares, do not let your kids watch this movie. I remember watching this movie several times as a child in the early 1980s. All I can say is that I am scarred for life! I remember this movie as scaring the hell out of me for no good reason. The psychedelic quality of it was over my head and didn't end up mesmerizing and delighting me as promised, but confused and scared me. This from a kid who by that age had seen more horror movies than anyone should have. I really think this movie was made by a bunch of hippies who were all hopped up on drugs and thought that they were thinking in childlike ways, but really were just stoned. Scary, scary, scary. Terrible movie that I still get uncomfortable thinking about to this very day!
