About Bat 7902 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: Always Sometimes Monsters and The Witcher


  1. The original BBC adaption of Quatermass And The Pit. When the workman was drilling through the nose cone where the alien bodies were.

  2. IT – when the kids are looking through the book at Pennywise’s history, then he comes running through the old photograph to pop his face out at them, it’s positively pants-soiling.

    I have hated clowns ever since!!!!

  3. Killer Instinct episode from Freddy’s Nightmares. I kept having nightmares(!) after some scenes in that episode. Particularly the scene where a girl witnesses the corpse of her friend sipping tea at the family table while bits of flesh and blood are sticking to the cup 🙁

  4. To be honest – The League of Gentlemen – even though it was supposed to be a comedy there was something menacing about it from the very beginning and I couldn’t watch!

  5. The “Hush” episode of Buffy – the gentlemen were legitimately scary! The moment when Olivia is looking out the window, and one just floats right past!

  6. twin peaks. season 2 episode 1, the final scene, where ronette wakes up from her coma and has flashbacks of killer bob and laura. absolutely freaked me the hell out, nightmarish.

  7. It wasn’t so much a series but the BBC did a so-called ‘live-show’ from a supposedly haunted house one Halloween, which at the time they claimed was real (for which they got into loads of trouble later) but in the show they showed a sinister ghost appearing behind one of the presenters and as I thought it was ‘real’ at the time, it scared the beejesus out of me!!

  8. The ‘Squeeze’ episode of The X-Files (with Tooms). Didn’t help that a boy in my class had exactly the same colour eyes and I had to sit next to him!

  9. Ghost Asylum when you actually see dark shadows that then tell them to go away through their speaking machine it is so creepy makes the hairs on my neck stand up

  10. Seeing the human/alien mutations in series 4 of Falling Skies was a pretty scary moment. I think I literally jumped off my bed!

  11. I’ll go with the first appearance of Dr. Who’s Weeping Angels (as my daughter nearly died of fright) but back when I was but a wee boy I remember nearly dying when I saw Patrick Troughton’s Dr. Who’s Cybermen in the moon station, they scared me silly not like these watered down modern versions.

  12. I think that it would be the scene in freddys nightmares when people keep seeing other people in the room as freddy kruger when it was actually innocent people they were killing.

  13. As a child it was always the beginning of The Outer Limits to me i thought it was real… well you would when you hear it start off with… There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to – The Outer Limits. and then the pictures do start to distort and the volume goes up and down etc. lol

  14. Sad to say but it has to be Dr Who when the Cyber men and Daleks first on screen 1963 (mum washed many a nappy then)

  15. Without a doubt it was when Toombs was shown on the X-Files stretching as he reached down the chimney! Central heating for me from then on!

  16. I was onlly 4 and woke up, went in the sitting room and saw eyes move behing a painting in a “Carry On” comedy, It frightened me silly, and I was crying for ages. I forget the name of the film now, but when I was older a watched the whole thing and it was hilarious.

  17. Plenty of scary tv moments but the best are Pennywise in the drain from IT, the mattress scene in AHS: Hotel and the Weeping Angels from Dr Who!

  18. In Afterlife when the ghost of the drowned girl is coming up the stairs and leaving wet footprints – that really stuck in my mind!

  19. Fringe was a TV series that could do creepy really well, whether it was producing something icky to turn your stomach or something chilling like Marionette. In this episode, the team investigate the deaths of people who had recently received a transplants, only for their killer to take that heart back again. The case soon leads them to a young girl who had committed suicide and whose organs had then been donated. It’s a riff on the Frankenstein tale as the killer attempts to use these organs to resurrect the girl; it’s got all the hallmarks of an act of love, but is more accurately one of obsession. The most chilling scene is when the killer rigs up the still-deceased girl to a pulley system to make her dance again, giving the episode its name and one of Fringe’s most haunting sequences.

  20. Dale Cooper’s dream in Twin Peaks, with the dwarf, the Red Room, and Laura Palmer. It certainly got under my skin, and gave me some vivid/disturbing nightmares intermittently for a whole month.

  21. The scene in the original Carrie which begins where she is covered in the pigs blood, then she looks around the room slamming door and starting fires.

  22. I don’t remember ever being too scared by a tv series, but the first time I watched Jaws I almost died when the head popped out from under the boat.

  23. American horror story: Murder House, used to scare me all the time. Whenever they were in the basement I knew it was gonna get scary!

  24. most recently it was The Enfield Haunting, lots of scary moments – think it’s always scarier when there are children involved.

  25. The ITV Woman In Black from way back in 1989 was incredible. Sure the recent Hammer film looked great, but the ITV adaptation stuck closer to the original book and THAT scene in the bedroom scared me senseless when I was a nipper!

  26. There was a scene in an episode of Fringe where a monster made me jump… I screamed so loud the neighbour came to check on me!

  27. Checking out Embarrasing Bodies for the first time!!! Arrrgghh. Creepiest show ever. Apart from that i would have to go with the first showing of the Grey’s in X-Files. January can’t come quick enough 🙂

  28. The scene in the Walking Dead where it looks like they’ll all be getting their throats cut before being eaten by cannibals.

  29. I’m a wimp so I’m scared by everything! Remember Me shown on TV last year had me creeped out – especially the bit where the kids are exploring the attic room up *those* stairs…

  30. So many parts in twin peaks but probably Bob appearing at the foot of Laura Palmer’s bed. Can’t wait for the new series

  31. The film Poltergeist where I think the Dad is being pulled into the ground by loads of the dead who where buried on the land he built the house on. My cousins were watching it and I happened to walk in at that point – I saw that and walked back out.

  32. The thing that scares me the most on TV is watching old reruns of Top of The Pops with Jimmy Savile. Be very afraid. Or when Rolf Harris asked a young girl “Can you tell what it is yet?”
