About Bat 7075 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Kingdom Come: Deliverance


  1. Theatre of Blood, don’t remember how old I was, probably around 7. The scene with the man and his dogs upset the hell out of me BT I was still drawn to it. My first introduction to Vincent Price and I’m still a fan ????

  2. friday the 13th i was a teenager it frightened the life out of me.For years i would check under the bed before i got in it in case there was someone with a drill hiding underneath.I also watched poltergeist still can’t have toys in the bedroom…

  3. Quatermass And The Pit (the BBC TV series), I startyed digging holes all over the garden looking for aliens, well I was 4 years old!!

  4. Asylum (Hammer horror film) watch this film for the first time in the early 80s loved the twist at the end great film still plays on my mind now.

  5. Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds – I was about 10 or 11 and it scared me to death – I still have a phobia of birds 🙁

  6. It would have been An American Werewolf in London – I was probably too young to fully appreciate it at the time, but it’s a classic!

  7. It was the Ghoul (1975), utterly terrifying for me as a ten year old. Lived in a flat in big old Victorian house by the sea at the time, I never would go up the stairs any further than the first floor after seeing this.

  8. The American Werewolf in London. I was absolutely terrified of that film, and still to this day (I’m 50 years old now) I still won’t get my washing in from the garden when it’s nearly dark, I get my husband to do it for me.

  9. hammer house of horrors and it was terrifying,the music in the beginnig was enough to get your heart beating faster

  10. Probably Dracula with Christopher Lee. I was far too young to watch it lol and my sister 3 years older made me go upstairs first every night for about 3 months afterwards just in case something horrible was stood at the top. 🙂

  11. Probably Razor Blade Smile, which I recall seeing on Bravo many years ago as a teenager. I thought the story line was very entertaining, and although some of the acting was a little bit corny, it had Eileen daly romping around in lycra clad costumes… what’s not to like?

  12. The exorcist, in 1974 I was about 13 years old, I went to the cinema with my elder brother to watch it. It left me unable to sleep for nights afterwards! I’ve watched it loads of times since and it doesn’t bother me, but back then I was scared!

  13. It must have been something from Hammer House…probably Dracula? I was pretty scared after seeing it – Christopher Lee was and is still a LEGEND R.I.P.

  14. Not exactly a film… and it was years and years ago- william hartnell was the main character and those early years Daleks were darn scary to me as a child!!!- yes it was Dr Who back in the 60’s.

  15. Not sure if you can class this as a true horror, but Hammer’s “The Terror of the Tongs” stays with me because of someone going to be tortured by “scraping the bone”

  16. it was dracula: prince of darkness and i loved it. the scene where the butler hangs the guy up over dracula’s ashes and cuts his throat in order to resurrect his master has stayed with me to this day.

  17. The Pit and the Pendulum, was my first horror, Vincent Price was scary as hell and I had nightmares for a week.

  18. American Werewolf in London – I thought it was brilliant and the transformation scenes totally grossed me out!

  19. Hellraiser was my first when i was too young to me and my older brother watch stole our parents copy. 😈

  20. The never ending story – I KNOW it’s not really a horror but ‘the nothing’ from it gave me nightmares for months!

  21. Probably a Hammer horror film like Dracula or Frankenstein and I found them gripping and sometimes creepy (particularly Curse of the Fly).

  22. Children of the Corn. Just me and a girl I was trying to impress when we were about 13, and it scared the bejayzus out of me.

  23. I really had to think about this to make sure it was British! But the first British horror movie I saw was The Wicker Man (1973 version) I was about 12 and I watched it from the stairs when my babysitter was watching it. I didn’t sleep for about a week!!
    I found it really gripping and scary but I had to watch more!

  24. The Wicker Man – I remember thinking that it was not very frightening but liked the ending. I have not see the remake.

  25. I always loved the Hammer Horror movies; I think that the first one I saw (on tv) was probably Dracula with the always amazing Christopher Lee. It got me addicted to horror – and was the main subject of an essay for the film & tv module in my history degree.

  26. American Werewolf in London, I was about 8 and wasn’t allowed to watch it but caught glimpses of it as my older brother watched it. I was scared stiff!

  27. The first British horror i ever saw was probably Carry On Screaming. Like all Carry On movies full of double entendres and it also had the sexy Fenella Fielding. What more could you ask for?

  28. Dracula (1958 Hammer Film Productions) – in the early 70’s ITV used to show a horror film at 10.30 every Friday night. This film started a life long love of gothic horror, Hammer, Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and all things supernatural.

  29. I love British horror and can’t remember what my first was but one of my favourites has to be 28 days later
