    I watched it about 15 years ago and watched it again last night (in bed with all the lights out).

    That is one creepy, scary movie.

    Anyone else care for it?

    Just picked it up on Blu Ray at Target. Hadn't seen it 15 years either.

    The ending is freaky (was about to give it away) .

    I guess I didn't need to use spoiler tags on a 30 year old movie

    Yep, that's it essentially. It's right up there with The Shining and Stephen King's IT for me as far as creep factor goes. I haven't seen IT in quite some time so maybe it doesn't hold up but I remember being freaked a little bit when I saw it years ago.

    Yes, she had some small ass titties and they kept showing the damn things.

    Plus she said some awful things to Jacob like "you were even talking to your dead kid in your sleep".


    Speaking of creepy I just remembered Flowers In The Attic. That gave me a god damn panic attack and I haven't watched it since.

    I remember seeing it with in the theater with this girl I really liked. I was a young douche in the friend zone. I just remember the chick saying how hot she thought Tim Robbins was. Lanky fuckin asshole. Hated him till I saw Shawshank.
