still an absolute classic. the scene with the boys floating at Mark Petrie's window, scratching the windows saying ''open the window Mark'', that scared the bejeesus outta me as a kid!

I think the remake is kinda worthy of at least a 'half' mention too... not least because James Cromwell is the Pere Callahan I always imagined from the DT novels :) Rob Lowe sucks in it though, and not blood LOL
