I was addicted to this movie when it first came out. In my opinion it was one of the scriest movies ever made. I just found it on a file sharing site and burned it on to disc. I was watching it with a friend who had never seen it. Within the first 15 minutes my friend almost had a heart attack and jumped out of his seat. It is very true what they say about this film "You don't have time to scream!". I think they should remaster it and re release it. It's a timeless horror classic. Great movie!
