    I can't say for sure if id ever seen this or not. I liked some of the designs from these movies as a kid but I don't know I would have sat through them that young. I read the book about a decade ago.

    Genuinely my first viewing! It plays much different than I had always thought it did. The first half of the film is really pretty fun and breezey, going in directions I didn't expect and with some neat kill sequences. This is despite some *really* bad dialog and acting. But the second half is pretty brutual. Repetitive, boring and more than a little batty-from-out-of-nowhere i was having a hard time believing this only clocked 95 minutes by the end.
