This was the very first film that scared me. I remember watching it as a child in the early evening. My mum was going out and she popped in to say goodbye, I was terrified but didn't want to tell her. I remember her saying goodbye, hearing the front door close and I managed to watch the rest of it on my own (there would have been a babysitter in the house as I was young).
I watched it again today and it was almost just as terrifying. Dark, intense, horrific and brilliant.
