This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
classic chills from Steven Spielberg and, surprisingly for me, Tobe Hooper! i never knew that Hooper had directed this film! anyways, great, creepy entertainment, from the immortal "They're here..." straight through to the rollicking climax that kicks in just when you thought the poor family are safe. a couple of the effects are a little dated nowadays but certainly don't detract from the film; there are still plenty of great, jumpy moments to be had throughout and that last segment especially is cracking. great flick!
