: (I'm sounding old on purpose) that movie was scary. Since that movie, flicks have gotten more gruesome and push the envelope a lil more. So it's probably boring to anyone used to today's horror flicks.
: Hell..the first scary movie I ever saw was when I was 22 and it was the first Pinhead movie. That chatty-teeth monster thingy freaked me the fuck out. I wouldn't get off the back of the sofa.
And we were stunned by how lame it seems in comparison. I mean, an hour into the film, and only one death! And even in the end, there's like, what, 4 or 5 deaths? That's NOTHING in comparison to what you'd get today. But when I was a kid, it was the scariest thing going! It was just amazing to us, seeing how things have changed.
