When this came out I had been to every John Carpenter movie he’d put out since I had been alive and available to go to the theater. This had wrestler Roddy Piper (who I hated) in it and it was more comedic than I had been exposed to. This was a real disappointment to me then (as a John Carpenter horror loving / Roddy Piper hating person). I watched this the other week and I guess it’s not too bad. I guess.
