    a little off tread, I hope nobody minds...
    any ideas on good old spooky B&W films. We have Hounds of the Baskervills but would like to ring the changes this year. We get the treats ready for the young kiddies that call, turn the lights out and watch scary old films. Fab!

    Supposed to be a true story, this. Round about 1870 something, the Austrian Emperor was hosting a banquet for a lot of dignitaries. The British Envoy was invited. When his carriage reached the bottom of the steps to the palace, the footmen went down to escort him in. As they went down the steps, they saw, underneath the carriage, the feet and legs of the Envoy as he got out of the carriage and walked toward the front. As the footmen went round to greet him, he had disappeared. An immediate search was held, but no trace was ever found of him.

    Weird, eh?

    I was at a dinner party with some dear friends and whilst sitting in the lounge I saw one of them get glasses out of the cabinet.
    Some time later I was asked by Jackie if I would mind getting the glasses out
    ?????
    I said someones already done it........ nope, the glasses were still in the cabinet. So I checked and they were!
    To this day I am sure they were winding me up, and they are sure I am winding them up!
    I know I saw someone take out the glasses.
    My friend lived then in an old cottage in a small village in Essex.

    "Night of the Demons" B&W with Dana Andrews in it excellent and the "demon" effect was sort of double exposing with a steam engine ..... far more effective than all this ere CG stuff these days.

    Or how about the good old fave, "Carrie"

    I once lived in a land of Space and Plenty where the hospitals were clean and you could get a bed where elders were respected and buses were not covered in dents and scrallings. Then I woke up one day living in a overcrowed slum and could be put in prison for saying the 50s were beter than now......but I havent moved.

    Now that is scary
