The most frightening film of the 20th Century.
11 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this film, when I was 10 years old, and I can honestly say that this film is the only one that ever scared the pants off me. I can still remember the story now(60 years later) and I still get goose bumps when I think about it.It was the most chilling film ever, and although it had no violence in it, it left you shivering. A similar story was in "Appointment With Fear" on the radio in the 50's and that was excellent as well.A good film does not need blood and gore to frighten you, this film preyed on your imagination, and although you did not actually see anything, your heart was in your mouth from start to finish. Anyone who is lucky enough to get their hands on a copy is really blessed.
