I was 12 years old when it came out. The year I started my period. The year I got braces. I can't even begin to describe the affect it had on my life. When you talk about guilty pleasures, this is one of mine. Because I still love this movie, after all these years, even as a grown up, even though I can see the utter cheeseballness of it.
Hearing that song taps me back into it every time.
Watching it late at night with David or Yvonne when I was 18.
SweetPea and I got it from Netflix a few months ago. We turned out all the lights and curled up in bed and I think we both held our breath through the entire movie.
Today I was watching the previews on I Am Legend and almost had a heart attack when I saw this.
At first I thought it was a remake. So much of it is exactly like the original, only new. Apparently, though, it's a sequel.
I'm torn between being completely appalled and totally turned on.
I guess I'll have to go see it to know for sure (Early Nerd Special?)
In the meantime: Corey Feldman? Honey... We may need to chat.
