The grandaddy of childhood fear
14 October 2005 | by (Somewhere in England) – See all my reviews

One of those odd moments in time where it's just as scary later. It's old fear, folks. Many years ago they used to have Public Information Films on TV. This concept will mean nothing to anyone born after 1975, but to those of us unfortunate enough to have been lucid enough to understand what was going on in the mid 70s, everyone will remember their personal er, 'favourite'. Mine is my business.

The point is this - it's old fear. If you watch them with a clean slate, you wouldn't be affected. You'd laugh them off. This, however, you wouldn't. The sister of that Tory knob who masterfully pronounced Kevin Kline's fully made up name in 'A Fish Called Wanda' comes upstairs and....well you know the deal don't you? You watch it in 1978. You watch it in 2004. The reaction is the same, regardless of if you've seen it before. As an exercise, I tried it on someone younger. They were affected just the same way. Oh yes.

If you are are genuinely interested and have an inquiring mind, look it up...if you dare.
