I’ve got a bad feeling about this.

But why is that so scary? I’d like to think it’s due to mostly practical effects as opposed to CGI. Case in point – two flicks I’ve recently caught on cable that freaked me a little bit out. Well, one did more than the other, and I’ll let you guess which was which. But they were both made in the 80’s, so that explains a lot.
