Why am I just hearing about this movie?! I recorded this movie off the movie channel just because I liked the description.When I started to watch it, I really expected Targets to suck but I was I wrong.Targets was a great movie.I noticed my favorite Boris Karloff roles are when he's not playing a monster or something similar
