    To borrow from the comic book titles, this movie was amazing and spectacular. Far beyond any and all expectations I may have had. Can’t wait to watch it again and again!

    My now-16 year old daughter use to watch this all the time. I had genuinely forgotten how much fun it was. Definitely glad I snagged it for $3 on blu-ray back during the "Black Friday Week" sales.

    ★★★★

    This is a great lesson in atmospheric horror. Nice, slow building tension with mysterious happenings. Frequent moments of "did you just see that thing move?" and "Behind you, Harry Potter!!" spookiness. I jumped a few times and had goosebumps at least once. I know it was based on a stage play per other people's posts, and I'd love to see it. All in all, an excellent return of Hammer Studios.

    Bumped my rating by half a star. Still holds up with wonderful practical effects that you can see being carried over to Yuzna’s SOCIETY three years later. 
    Also, I forgot that Ken Foree fights a miniature Dune sandworm with nothing but his bikini briefs and a butcher knife in this.
