If you like Stephen King type horror, AC/DC or Emilio Estevez then you will love this film!
As a child of the late sixties I saw this when it first came out in '86 and remembered it to be good. Only just found the DVD and now I know why! It is the first film actually directed by King and although the story is completely far fetched and somewhat cheesy, the way it is put together and shot with some odd camera angles make it very watchable. It is also surprisingly gory for a film of this era and includes death by some extremely weird methods including bridge, lawnmower and Coke can! as various machines run amok.
Also the soundtrack to the film is pretty much 100% hard rockin AC/DC which of course apawned the album "Who Made Who"... one of my faves!
Also worth mentioning is a great performance by a very young Esteves and the film also features the then unknown Yeardly "Lisa Simpson" Smith as Connie.
Great entertainment... glad I found it!
