    Not my favourite decade for movies there was only a few I liked.

    If I was to pick just one it would be either Scarface or Predator.

  12. One of my favourite things about movies is watching something you know nothing about , have no expectations about and anticipating very little.
    Such was my viewing of ' Pumpkinhead '
    I was pleasantly suprised at how much I enjoyed it.
    I'd rather be stuck on a spaceship with Alien than to have Pumpkinhead after me.

  18. There's a paricular scene in that movie I'm picturing in my mind. I'm guessing someone here knows what it is. I'm going to project it mentally and someone will post an image. I'm projecting now...

    While My Guitar Gently Weeps is used effectively in this film.
