Ripley's movie review

When I was young, this movie was on TV every year at Christmas. I watched it five years in a row (at least) and it scared the hell out of me five years in a row (at least). Maybe it seems a bit cliched now but one should remember that this movie inspired Halloween and others of its type, not the other way around. Even now, thirty years later (!?!!), parts of it are still unsettling and the ending still makes me shiver. Worth watching.
