many-storied said: This movie SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF ME. I caught it by accident on HBO in the early 90s. And although I was like, “Ooh, Denise Crosby!” I then immediately lost all of my shit.
I was working at a video store in Nevada when this was released, and even though knew nothing about it, I decided to check it out. It was so bleak and terrifying, and it totally freaked me out. But I instantly fell in love with it and it became one of my favorite movies. Fast forward 20 years and I moved to L.A. for work. It was no coincidence that I opted to live on the Miracle Mile. My fiancee and I currently live a block away from the diner where Anthony Edwards first received the call (as well as most all of the other filming locations from this movie).
Blast from the past right here. If anyone was involved or listened to college radio in the mid-late nineties, you surely heard this song. I probably haven’t heard it since then when I used to play it all the time on my radio show. Such a great little song.
