    When I was a kid i was up late, and this movie was on TV (like 11 pm late and I was like 9) and there’s this scene where a woman is walking through a room with people (dead?) hanging from wires.

    Scariest darn thing ever

    Saw the original at the theater when I was 9.

    @JohnM the vision people hanging on the wires sticks with me to this day.

    *the vision OF the people (it should have said)

    Great cast but I’ll see it just for Ellen Burstyn. It’s about time for a remake.
