It’s a film in which you learn a lot with the characters through theorizing and contextualizing without the necessity of exposition or long-winded explanations that draw you away from the emotional impact it hits you with.

By the time you get to the conclusion, the haunting soundtrack drifts you into the credits without any sense of relief; cementing Carpenter’s vision for a horror film that would live with you long after. The film wasn’t a hit at the box office given how it inconveniently released the same day as Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner”.

However, there was an odd satisfaction that works in favor of the ambiguity that Carpenter adds. The ending doesn’t feel like an ending.

Maybe a Coca-Cola that we would share just like in the commercials" The answer was no, as he approached the clerk he purchased one box of Swedish fish and one movie ticket. A little confused, I paid my own way; however I was pretty sure that was his job since he asked me…

    possibility of any new business prospects is very slim due to the unstable nature of the industry. In other words, it just doesn’t make any business sense to enter an already volatile market and absorb the unwanted risk. Reducing risk provides a challenge since there are no major investors who would take on the task to expand the industry to a productive source of capital. Competitors look for suitable strategic placement, usually in uncommon geographic regions, and all for the purpose of…

People are getting kicked out of movie theaters all over, just because they are bringing their own food! This is what I think about it. You save a lot more money if you bring your own snacks. You could get a giant bag of pretzels for the same price as 1 pretzel at the movies. One bag of popcorn could be $5.00 at the movie theater and only $2.00 for a box of popcorn at…
