When Rebecca left home, she thought she left her childhood fears behind. Growing up, she was never really sure of what was and wasn’t real when the lights went out…and now her little brother, Martin, is experiencing the same unexplained and terrifying events that had once tested her sanity and threatened her safety. A frightening entity with a mysterious attachment to their mother, Sophie, has reemerged. But this time, as Rebecca gets closer to unlocking the truth, there is no denying that all their lives are in danger…once the lights go out.

BatI 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: Silent Hill


  1. In the warehouse where he is running back to his office. I like the way they built on the suspense leading into & throughout that scene

  2. The Conjuring 2 – When the woman is looking at the nuns painting hanging on the wall and a pair of hands come out of the wall grab the painting from behind and move forward quickly to attack the viewing woman. Holy crap I was drinking a cup of tea at the tea, needless to say most of it landed in my lap!

  3. In Se7en when the remains of a man start to come back to life

  4. I think the most I’ve jumped is John Carpenter’s The Fog – especially when the corpse moved in the autopsy room and **SPOILER ALERT!** when Malone got decapitated!

  5. In the first V/H/S movie. There’s a segment where a girl is on Skype with her boyfriend and a little boy runs past the camera, laughing, slamming the door behind him. That is probably the most I’ve jumped at a horror movie to the best of my knowledge anyway.

  6. In the Wicker Man, when Sgt. Howie wakes up and ther’es a burning hand beside him.

  7. Insidious made me jump on a few occasions which means its a good film in my eyes 🙂

  8. the shining when first released

  9. The ‘Ben Carpenter’s Boat Sequence’ in Jaws, boy that really shook me up!

  10. The shinning
    The here,s Jonny scene

  11. The Haunting it is just so spooky

  12. The chest defibrillation scene in John Carpenter’s The Thing.

  13. Exocist, there was a few moments in that film when i was jumping

  14. When I was a kid I was terrified of the ghost in the library in Ghostbusters. Even as an adult it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end.

  15. The original Carrie, the graveside scene at the end of the movie

  16. The shinning
    The here,s Jonny scene

  17. Did not expect the hand to come out of t he grave at the end of “Carrie”. Had to throw away the underpants!

  20. i remember the fright when watching Alien the first time

  21. Not much makes me jump but recently I did jump at the alien in Arrival – pathetic really, its basically a giant squid. #shame

  22. The bit in Jaws when the body shifted in the wreck underwater – my mum threw her cup of tea across the room in fright

  23. Paranormal Activity 3 in which Dennis hears a noise coming from his closet and soon after he opens it, his wife jumps out wearing a creepy witch mask.

  24. Captain Howdy…….The Exorcist!

  25. The pea soup vomit sequence in The Exorcist.

  26. Insidious. The scene containing a conversation between Josh Lambert and his mother about the terrifying visitations harassing the Lambert family. In the conversation, she recounts a dream about the visitor. The scene contains a back and forth between terrifying scenes from her dream and their real conversation at the table. Then, out of nowhere, a frightening red figure appears behind Josh’s head accompanied by a loud bang. This scene was so masterful because the director had the viewers convinced that the flashbacks were dangerous and the real world was safe, boy, how wrong were we.

  27. It’s years since I first watched in (1981) but the scene in Salem’s Lot when the child vampire appears floating outside the window….yikes!
