Although Roddy Piper is likable and I appreciate the fact that John Carpenter is trying to get a message across with a really wacky concept, this just falls flat with no character development and not enough reasons to care about anything. It’s also painfully boring.

UPDATE (10/18/20): I think I was a little too hard on this. There’s actually a lot of fun to be had with it and I should probably rewatch it soon.
