That was terrific!

“The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh,” unedited, pretty please.
I remember reading the novelization of PHASE IV as a kid. Not sure if I ever actually saw the movie.
I admit I briefly wondered if Alex and Miss Teschbacher (spelling?) were going to pair up . . ...
EDIT: Oops. For some reason, I got my threads mixed up. Thought we were talking about THE FLY, not LET ME IN.

Hawkgirl was the first thought that popped into my mind, too.
Raises hand. Works for me.
