I bought this a few days ago and it still holds up, even the lesson that you should never complain about the flavor of ice cream you didn't ask for
. All of it is still great, especially the criminally underrated actor Darwin Joston ("Save them for the first two a$$holes who come through that vent!") and the wonderfully eerie score.
It also took me back almost a decade when I told Dad about this film which was showing late but I urged him to watch it. He called me the next morning and our conversation went something like this:
DAD: "That was good, worth staying up late for."
ME: "Glad you enjoyed it."
DAD: "Just one thing: I'm sure I've seen that somewhere before."
DAD: "I'm sure John Wayne was in it and it was a Western."
DAD: "Trevor: is it a remake?"
ME: "Umm, yes: a remake of Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo
DAD: "I [expletive deleted] knew it!"
