I was so scared of this movie because of commercials that I never saw it….the commercials scared the heck out of me as a kid where my brother would tease me undyingly about it even though we’d never seen the movie!
Now, I watched it today.
To me it’s SO SO STRANGE how things can be SO SCARY to you one time of your life and a joke another. Clearly the whole “Tall Man” thing was spooky…but that metal ball that chases people, that one was what got me in my youth. Of course, the final scene is a good shocker….reminiscent of FREDDY KRUEGER’s moves which of course CAME AFTER…..all in all it’s a ’70s classic with tempera paint for blood in two colors, yellow and red.
UNK SEZ: Funny you should mention “The Tall Man”, it’s his 30th Birthday!
