Quotes

Roald Dahl: I have a maiden aunt in Norway who was actually rolled out of bed onto the floor three nights running, by a ghost. But then she lives in what was once a very old trysting place. About 400 years ago, they bricked up a naughty girl in the wall of that room: that sort of thing always produces a ghost.

The show of my nightmares.
31 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This T.V. show aired when I was 9 years old. All I can remember about it was that the first episode scared the heck out of me, the second episode scared the heck out of my grandmother and the third episode ( having to do with nuclear war, I believe) scared the heck out of my parents. After that, we weren't allowed to watch it anymore, and I wish it was available on tape or DVD so I could see for myself what I missed. Now that I look back, after seeing everything in the horror and sci-fi field that's come out since, I wish I could see these episodes and compare them to all the shows I've loved since then, like Twilite Zone or Outer Limits.
