Clwojick I don‘t know if I ever seen past the third one. As children, we inherited our uncles recorded vhs collection, and it was the first three on one 8hr tape. I probably haven‘t seen any of them since I was 12 years old. We were probably braver with our movie selections at that age, than I am now. 😂 Now I won‘t watch creepy movies if my husbands not home!
