The first one was about as hokey as I can bear in a horror film. 2 and 3 just were not horror to me.
Don't get me wrong, I loved the first one. Scared the <deleted> out of me as a child. And to me... at that age, there was nothing funny about it. Though now I can see some of the camp in it.
But now, when I watch the others, especially AOD, well... it's just not my cup of tea. The images of the first one argue with the comedy of 2 and 3, if that makes any sense.
But I'm a big fan of camp.
Speaking of camp, or maybe in this case sci-fi/camp/comedy/horror, I'm a huge fan as well as owner of the movie I shall start a thread of, mainly because I fell in love with it late one night on Joe Bob Briggs Monster Vision (I think that's what it was called).
Killer Klowns From Outer Space!
(loved Joe Bob's narrarations and body counts that he did on those long ago Saturday nights.
