It's all the more impressive considering that not one of the remakes or sequels can hold a candle to the original, in my opinion.
However, there's just something about this film that feels wrong. Some characters change motivations on a dime and don't get me started on the lack of development most of these people get. Not only that, but the effects haven't aged well, like at. Even compared to similar type movies of that era. Oh well, maybe hat little theater on Broad and Fifth will do a revival and I can see a more enjoyable psycho teen show.
