  1. I love The Changeling! I saw it late at night many years ago and it has stuck with me ever since. The Others is also very creepy and enthralling. Have you ever seen The Amazing Mr Blunden? It’s a children’s film from the seventies based on a book sort of ghostly and time travely. It may be for kids but it’s a good haunted house type film nevertheless!

    It was a very dark and scary night…that afternoon, our parents dropped us off at the movies. “The Tingler” with Vincent Price was playing. Ten years old and clueless about movie stars – I happily went to the show with my two older brothers. To say it was the very scariest, bloodiest, most nightmarish movie I have ever seen in my whole life also speaks to- I’ve never seen another horror movie. The blood running out of the bath tub spigot was only surpassed in the “Ick!” category by the lobster-ish monster which scuttled around and choked people (note: people needed to be in a prone- easy access -position for the bloody, red shellfish monster to attack.) That night, our parents went out to dinner and left us alone. I slept with all the lights on, with a prayer book, a rosary, between my two older brothers. I like musicals.
