The Crawling Eye

This is the kind of film that makes your jaw drop! Anyway, showed this bad boy to my students this evening for the annual 16mm Halloween Movie and Food Drive. Collected some 6 boxes of food that I'll take to the local Food Pantry tomorrow.

The students had a break from studying for midterms (yeah, right), and we collected food to help those who need a little extra.
