„We’re going to get you. We’re going to get you. Not another peep. Time to go to sleep.“




Weiter geht es mit dem Jahr 1981, einem wahrlich guten Jahr fürs Kino. Dr. Jones schwang zum ersten Mal seine Peitsche, Snake Plissken rettete den Präsidenten, Sean Connery trat an zum High Noon im Weltall, David Cronenberg ließ Köpfe explodieren, Max Rockatansky legte sich mit Lord Humungus an, dem Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla, und Sam Raimi entfesselte Dämonen in einer Waldhütte. In diesem Sinne: viel Spaß mit meiner Reise in das Jahr 1981!
