It's a fun horror film not great and for sure not Carpenters best but I still enjoy it for what it is

It was alright. It has it's fair share of moments and Carpenter's score is awesome as always, but it is pretty dull is parts. It does get better as it goes though.

It does drag in places, but there's some cool, Lovecraftian horror going on here, and Donald Pleasance is always fun. Good 80s soundtrack as well.
