This is one of those horror movies that I first watched as a child (Yeah, my parent's let me watch horror movies as a kid and I think they are awesome because of it) and still love to this day. It is just such an amazing slasher flick (That spawned a franchise of twelve movies in total, plus a 2009 remake) and is a must watch in my opinion.
