I saw this for the first time since 1988 - that is because the South African censors banned the thing outright - and I am glad to say that it holds up. Certainly one of John Carpenter's best films IMO and still creepy as hell, even though it is wildly far-fetched.

Wow, I thought this was awful.  Great cast though.  Except for the Asian guy from BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA; he was really annoying.

I thought this was a good one in the suspense department.

I loved this the first time I saw it.  However, my opinion of it dropped quite a bit after I saw it a couple more times.
