Right... Do you remember this scene from the Twilight Zone ?

well, traceur, I was talking about mean but this thread can really go in any direction.

I just saw the original yesterday. SyFy did their Twilight Zone Marathon.

I had to laugh at the monster suit. It looks like a worn out baby snuggie thing.

You do too?

I've been afraid of them for as long as I can remember. I think the scariest thing on earth would be seeing a face in your window, out in the dark.

As much as I love scary stuff, scary movies...the thought of a real face in my window makes me feel ill.

I don't know...I have a vague recollection in my brain that one of my dad's friends snuck up to our living room window one night and scared me. I could be fantasizing that, but it would explain the fear.

I've even thought about when I win the lottery and build my log home. Many log homes have the giant windows along the front. I imagine electric-powered shades that I can close at night.

I'm on record with my fright at night windows (nicely put - I didn't manage that) and mirrors.
I can't elaborate now.
I have a NW right behind me.
If I type too long I will seriously get The Fear.

I do not believe in the afterlife, spirits, spooks, ghosts, afrits, haints, UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster or the theory of Atlantis.

But night windows and mirrors and reflections of things that are not there scare the bejesus out of me. Amen.

I had a wendy house in my bedroom as a kid too. It had those plasticy windows. *shudder*

And why was that a pig in the window on Amityville? I don't recall the reasoning there.

I can't find a clip except for the trailer.
