Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nostalgic entertainment! I loved this movie when it first came out but have had difficulty finding it over the past few years. I was not disappointed, I was entertained, shocked, a bit scared and very satisfied by the end. This movie still holds its own for suspense and is still one of the best in the sci-fi/horror genre. Better than the remake!
