Horrors never scared me until I saw Rise and Fall of Idi Amin.

Movies don't scare me as much as government leaders around the world.

Specially the ones who don't follow any rules or law.

Ok guys, let's keep this a-political, if you please Smile
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Can anyone identify this movie that scared the hell out of me when I was a kid ?

All I remember was that there was a suitcase, and when anyone opened it there was a bright light came from it, together with a weird horror sound that kind of was like 'AYEEEE, AYEEE, AYEEE'

Scared the shiat out of me ! Never found out the name of it.

The only films I can remember with a glowing briefcase, or similar, were Repo Man, Ronin, Kiss Me Deadly, and Pulp Fiction. Don't recall any sounds coming from them, though.

I just remembered one that scared me as a kid... I was about 6 and spending the night at a friend's house. We watched an episode of "Triller" called, "The Hungry Glass". Some people had moved to a house where ghosts would appear reflected in windows and mirrors. I seem to recall a man being beckoned by a ghost woman through a window and he fell to his death down a large cliff onto some seaside rocks. I just found out it is available on DVD. I'll be looking for that! Apparently, the show was hosted by Boris Karloff.

Yes, Michael. That episode of Thriller was rerun on MeTV just a few weeks ago. It starred William Shatner. The girl in the mirror was played by Donna Douglas, who later became famous as Ellie May Clampett on The Beverly Hillbillies. The story was written by ghost story master Robert Bloch. (Who later wrote Psycho)

And, yes, Boris Karloff was the host of Thriller.

Thanks, Bob! I had just found this. But, Café response time was running slow and I couldn't get it posted until now. I want to see it again (since it has been over 50 years!), just to see how scary it is.

There's another great Thriller episode involving a mirror. But in that one, it is Cagliostro who is trapped in the glass.

Sorry, I should have stated, this would have been in the 50's I think.
Probably too far back for most to remember.
Can't remember if it was B&W or colour, but I think it was colour.

It's good to find someone who knows the same stuff I remember from so long ago. I tried for years to tell people about that and only got blank stares. I just found this page, which has a drawing of what I clearly remember as the final scene in that show. Scroll down a bit.

I definitely have to buy that DVD!

Yes, that was it. The Prisoner in the Mirror. Excellent story.

Thriller was one of my favorite shows and, like I said, it is rerun in the middle of every weeknight on MeTV. (2AM here in Seattle)

I don't get MeTV on my cable. Smile

I vaguely remember the show, but at age 6 in the early 1960s, my parents probably kept me clear of it. Like I said, I was at a friend's house. Even pseudo noir stuff like Highway Patrol and Perry Mason were kind of spooky to me.

I was about twelve when I first watched Thriller. I remember seeing Boris Karloff play a mentalist in one episode. It was very much like the plot of Night Has a Thousand Eyes with Edward G. Robinson.

Before my time,but when I saw an airing of "Tarantula".
Was about 6,and I always had no fear of spiders & snakes.
Still do not,but that show really scared me for some reason!

I grew up in South Africa without TV. First time I saw TV was in London while visiting family friends. I was six years old. Everyone went to dinner, and stayed out late. I was left alone in a strange flat. Was supposed to be sleeping, but the TV was on and I watched Marilyn Monroe in "Don't Bother To Knock." Of course I had no idea who she was back then. But her portrayal of a mentally unstable babysitter scared me half to death!
