This film is definitely scary for it’s time. While the effects might seem silly or unrealistic compared to the flawless realistic effects of today, his film still delivers. The film slowly builds the suspense and the paranormal quality of it all is eerily creepy. The fact that there family isn’t perfect like most movie families is great. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat. The hallucination scene where a investigator hallucinates his face melting away is a bit disturbing and unsettling. Heather O’Rourke seems born to play Carol Anne with her innocently scary charisma. My one critique is the ending. I felt this movie should have stayed mysterious rather then go for the sci-fy ending. It felt corny and unneeded. Overall I definitely recommend this film to everyone.
