I rated it a 7 because...


the movie definitely has its eerie moments, funny moments, & I liked the special effects.

I rated it down because I disliked the nudity scenes. Those were pointless & didn't help the plot whatsoever.


Happy Valentine's Day!

No, LOL, but that's ANOTHER good reason to rate this movie as only being a 7! 

With this movie, even the plot didn't add anything to the plot.

It was too convoluted. Granted it was easy to follow, but it just seemed like the movie was just thrown together w/out any real thought put into it. I think had there been more scenes associated with the haunted ghost town instead of the 2 people constantly runninig & hiding from the evil ghosts, then it would've made for a more interesting movie. Unfortunately, it was just a lackluster movie; although, I honestly liked the visual special effects b/c for being in 1989 they were actually good & much more realistic than CGI of today! 

This is one of my favourite old horror movies, just for the endless laughs. It cracks me up every time.
