I was quite young when I caught this on TV. Scarry stuff when the tiny flyman got caught in a spider’s web and was abojut to be eaten. He called out ‘Help me’ in the most pathetic and hopeless manner. It has given me nightmares ever since.

Frenzy 1972

Hitchcock at his best or worst? I enjoyed this freak show.

Friday the 13th

I have probably sat through one of them. I don’t know which, but never saw any others. Deplorable. For horror a few seconds seeing a hostage having their head removed with a knife over the internet is enough to give you nightmares forever.

One to see

Futureworld 1976

The sequel to Westworld … I think I’ve seen it.
