Agreed. It may seem tame by modern standards, but IMO, strange men staring blank-eyed up at your bedroom window never stops being scary.It may seem old hat by now since it was such an archetype it was copied to death (pardon the expression), but I think it still stands up as a horror of wondrous simplicity, basic good versus evil stuff, tense and exciting. Give it a go, what do you have to lose?
There was a documentary in which the film's co-writer says she and Carpenter made a list of things that frightened them most, then they wrote the story around the list. I thought that was a clever way of working.
