    I don't think there is a better movie to watch in the middle of winter. It's also crazy it was not well reviewed when it was released and is now considered one of the best sci-fi and horror movies ever.

    My 9 year old nephew wanted to watch this for the first time, so these are his observations. Overall I'm impressed with his knowledge, which I assume comes from YouTube:

    "The graphics are really good for 1978. Better than Friday the 13th."

    "Doesn't she say totally a lot?"

    "How does he know how to drive?"

    "There's not a lot of blood in this movie."

    "Did John Carpenter write the book too?" (he means script)

    "Let me know when there is…
