In this inspiring tale from the book of Genesis, young shepherd Jacob (Matthew Modine) falls in love with and wants to marry Rachel (Lara Flynn Boyle), the daughter of his Uncle Laban (Giancarlo Giannini).

Paul D (gb) wrote: It's been done before, but the mystery killer vehicle story is not too bad, nor is the goriness of it all, it's just some terrible acting and mediocre directing that lets the whole thing down.

Akshay R (jp) wrote: Poor story-line and equally poor execution, could not be salvaged by the high production values, and Allu Arjun's terrific-but-not-the-best performance.
Snow T (ca) wrote: Scary in the ideas that it brings up. What I don't like is the failure to stitch together these ideas into a cohesive theory. I'm fine with them pointing out all the holes in videos and what we've been told, but the fact that they didn't take a step further and try to draw conclusions from it, makes the documentary feel kind of half-assed and unfinished.

Yes its a gloriously silly 80's flick but it really is basic in terms of sets, acting and casting, all very cheap and cheerful. The only reason to watch this, again, is simply for the pretty decent makeup and effects by Steve Johnson. Good old fashioned hands on halloween masks, prosthetics and blood.The new film is chock full of more seedy outfits and flashy visuals but the gore is about on par with this original. This older film isn't a big rave like the new film, its more low key with obviously smaller production values which gives it a better darker look. Lack of funds can often lead to better results in visuals methinks, you can't simply rely on CGI. Naturally this is a grittier affair and more of a sensible scare fest of course, but by today's standards its quite tame and humorous.
