7- More Epilepsy

9- NOBODY WOULD SLEEP IN THAT HOUSE AGAIN
10- Everybody expects the TV to turn on the whole time at the end.
It has its moments but it's clearly more Spielberg than Hooper, for better or worse.
I'm certainly not an expert on cinematography, but even I noticed a fair number of flaws in the movie. Still, I can certainly see how it was great for its time and how it's become so iconic. It's definitely superior to many of the horror movies of recent years.
