the last ten minutes of BBC's Ghostwatch are the scariest ten minutes recorded anywhere ever imo

Otm. This is a good read about the making of and reaction afterwards. (How nice it was to be able to make this in a world without social media tbh)

Ha, was literally just coming to post that it was effective seeing Ghostwatch for the first time as an American adult. I cannot even imagine what it would've been like to see it as a kid and in its proper context.

I watched it knowing everything about it and it was still some eye-boggling throat-cracking shit, can't even imagine what it was like to see it at the time

xp!! haha

The trailer for The Shining more than any moment in the film itself:

(with penda's fen. which isn't so much scary as lyrical, beautiful and inspiring. the edward elgar scene especially is one of the BEST if not scariest i've seen)

one particularly sadistic sequence I think of from time to time: JJL's demise in The Hitcher

Ghostwatch is significantly enhanced once you know to keep an eye out for the many 'blink and you'll miss it' appearances of Pipes throughout (a trope I was glad to see Hell House adopt). The split-second glimpse in the room beneath the staircase is my favorite.
