I saw it for the first time on cable in 1983 and liked it then. Thought it was creepy, love the special effects, but a lot of people hated it due to the book was better kinda thing. I remember in December of 81 seeing ads on t.v. for it and there was a lot of coverage on it, specially that old show called Evening Magazine. I really never cared too much for craig wasson . The chick was hot for that time though..
