I didn't like this one the first go-around but I have seen the light and wow, is it bright 'n stuff. Rick Baker's special effects are as good as you've heard and then some. And holy jeez, that cast. Sad to think that this don't catch on immediately (it was a box office dud, believe it or not). Ah well. See my interview with the reticent Carpenter for Vulture. Also, how 'bout that poster, huh?
