Review: Me and my friend Merideth watched the vhs of this a month ago and we had good conversation on all the symbolism. Shes better at seeing things like that than I am. There is a great “user comment” on the IMDb page ..its the first comment if you hit more.This movie has stuck with me since I was a kid and upon rediscovering it in my massive vhs collection ..its became one of my favorites.
