A great horror classic. A great revisit to a movie from my childhood! Loved it.
A much used story line but the acting in this film made it stand above the rest !
Great small town roughneck cast...
It was an awesome scary, but a supernatural sweet revenge plot. This is a 5 star movie hit.
i love movie's like this hooror
Please bring back more Made For TV movies from the 70s and early 80s. Obviously we love them...
Remember this movie from when I was a child. It was SO scary back then. Now, it's a good movie that brings back a great memory of my Mom and I sitting in front of the TV with a bowl of popcorn. I love you Mom & I miss you so much.
Back in the early/mid 90s I used to work in the assisted living home that Larry Drake's mother Lorraine lived at in Tulsa OK (it was called Skyline Terrace then). She was a character!!! But this is supposed to be about the movie. I remember watching this a kid with a girlfriend more than once. "Bubba didn't do it!"
Pretty good movie.It brings back memories of early 1980s movies which many were slasher-killer types.
one of the best movies
A movie much scarier than its television origins would suggest. Worth watching...but I wouldn't watch it alone, late at night.
