The film is just about as close to perfection as a film can get. Cameron's directing is flawless, and he would go on to direct other hit films such as TERMINATOR 2 (1991), TRUE LIES (1994), and the two highest grossing films of all time: TITANIC (1997) and AVATAR (2009). The film was released on July 18, 1986.

Ficks commented that the film is on par with Stanley Kubrick's 1964 film classic DR. STRANGELOVE, which also commented on the same topics. To be honest, Ficks has a valid point here. If you disagree, watch these films back to back and be surprised by the similarities. The film was released by Tri-Star/Touchstone Pictures on November 7, 1997.

This low-budget film got Carpenter's career going. Soon after he was directing films such as ASSAULT OF PRECINCT 13 (1976) and the most influential horror film of all time HALLOWEEN (1978). While the film only lasted for 83 minutes, Ficks screened several trailers of Carpenter's other films afterwards: THE FOG, STARMAN, HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH, THE THING, CHRISTINE, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, VAMPIRES, IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS, ESCAPE FROM L.A., and GHOSTS OF MARS.
