My Classic Movies category is reserved for movies like Citizen Kane and Casablanca, but I couldn’t help but include this movie in that series. It’s only 27 years old, but it’s a movie that everyone told me is a “must-watch.” Thought I enjoyed it, and it’s probably as good as any Halloween movie for viewing during that holiday season, I wouldn’t place it in that category. As with many movies, this one may have earned its reputation based on nostalgia rather than filmmaking technique.
Or not. Maybe it simply didn’t trigger things in me that it does in most others.
Even if you also merely like it, it’s short, fun, and thematic, so it’s not a bad watch at all. As always, YMMV.
