I saw this back in 1981 and loved it, although truthfully, my 14 year old self is not always a reliable judge of quality. So I was hoping that despite this film's mediocre reputation, it might be a hidden gem. No, it's not really. Part of what I remembered about it is dead right. It creates a nightmare atmosphere and never really lets up. I like that about it. It's not particularly funny though. Ackroyd and Moriarty are good, but the material mostly lets them down. Belushi is okay, but playing a straight man role really constrains what he can do. I have never seen Tim Kazurinsky without wanting to kick him in the teeth.
