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. If your wife is extremely delicate, and you tickle her to death, that will produce a ghost, too - so you have to be careful. We have another one for you next week at the same time. Good night and ...

"Side Show" Episode Of WAY OUT Was Most Scary!
7 January 2005 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

The 12th episode ("Side Show") of this GREAT terrifying anthology series was one of it's BEST and most unsettling and left a lot of kids (including myself & my best friend) - VERY scared! It had to do with a carnival Sideshow where there was this "Lady with a light bulb for a head". (The sideshow "barker" even draws people in by saying: "See the Amazing Lady with a light bulb for a head"!) She was strapped into this electric chair and 10,000 volts of electricity ran through her... This meek henpecked husband goes to the sideshow and falls in love with this "Headless" woman who begs him to free her from the chair. He returns the next night with pliers to free her, which they show him trying to do. BUT, the final ending sequence is the most unsettling and unforgettable - when you see that the MAN is now sitting in the electric chair with a light bulb in place of HIS head and the woman is dancing around him with a *head that looks like it was sew on (*from an opening sequence where the head of a woman is guillotined into a basket as one of the Sideshow's other attractions...) Anyone else who saw this episode - will NEVER forget it (even after 43 years) - it is THAT haunting! Anyone else recall seeing this extremely SCARY one? I would love to see it again, but unfortunately THIS episode has NOT been unearthed on any kind of VHS or DVD (even a "bootleg" or unauthorized one!) as yet. We can only hope that someday the superb WAY OUT series will finally be made available again! ;)
