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.

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.
