If, like me, you've been stuck at home today (I've been comforting dogs because Halloween in England is now just another opportunity to let off fireworks), then you've probably seen your fill of horror films already on the television. But what are the scariest films that you have ever sat through? Which ones actually managed to give you nightmares and why?
The film that scared me the most whilst watching it was the original version of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" which I saw, in a cinema near Kilburn tube station shortly after it came out. The film that gave me the most nightmares afterwards and which literally made me feel sick was the uncut version of "Soldier Blue." I saw it in a double feature with "Straw Dogs" back in the mid seventies. It was probably the most miserable time I have ever had at the cinema but I still regard "Soldier Blue" as one of the most important films ever made.
