TV shows or movies that scared you as a child

Which TV programmes or films frightened you as a child?

I was discussing this with another father at the school gates yesterday, and I remembered staying up to watch the Ealing film 'Dead of Night' (made in 1945) when I was about 9 or 10.

I thought it was going to be an Ealing comedy.

Take a look at Dead of Night, it's even more terrifying now!

Other TV shows and movies that scared friends include:

Children of the Stones (ITV)

Dr Who and The Sea Devils

Salem's Lot

The Changeling

Any others to give us all nightmares?

Aitchbee. Yes you could buy one in the guise of a money-box I think. You put your penny (?) on the top and there was a whirring noise before a hand came out and grabbed it and disappeared back inside. (They don't make 'em like they used to).

Morddwyd. I used to love Valentine Dyall too. He also read the news occasionally if I remember correctly. His voice certainly suited that radio program.

Well if it's movies you want how about Forbidden Planet or The Naked Jungle. Invisible aliens from your subconscious mind that tear you to bits or an unstoppable swarm of man-eating ants. Did my head in when I was much much younger.

Horrors of the Black Museum. Anyone else remember the binoculars that had spikes in them that pierced the girl's eyes in the opening sequence. I saw that as a young Marconi apprentice in the 50's and it has stayed with me ever since.
