When this film was first releases back in the 70s it was considered scary, and maybe there are some creepy parts, but I mostly found it boring, the remake was better and that's saying something. I watched this after a friend of a friend referred it, and the way they built it up, lead me to believe this film was going to be epic. Turns out, not so much! Not a film I would watch a second time.
