Okay, now we got the 3-D version coming out...which I personally can't wait for...it's time to look into the original.
This is a classic slasher with extra creepiness to boot. This film has a claustrophobic feel with mine tunnels and eerie gore. Also, ya get to laugh at the group of goofy early 80's working class people with the typical bad acting and hairdos.
Harry Warden is a way cooler killer than Jason or Michael Myers with the gas mask and pick axe and in my book its its over.I remember watching this film as a kid and I loved it. Now its out on DVD with all the gore, finally! I know what I'm watching every valentine's day. Harry Warden, you are a slasher god and that was true even before the 2009 3-D version. Thanks for the gory memories.
Here's the original 1981 TV spot. Classic material.
