THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT is pure digital hackery. No real craft or technique, just amateurism posing as 'avant garde.' Never found it scary in the slightest, just funny.

Well, I used to find Carry On Screaming scary when I was a kid, but Blair Witch Project bored me rigid.

Pardon me for breathing, I'm sure.

I saw it when I was 9. I was more frightened by Paul McCartney's RUPERT AND THE FROG SONG animation than that.

Mark Gattis' Horror Europa documentary is available to view on BBC iPlayer for a few more days.

Quote :
Actor and writer Mark Gatiss embarks on a chilling voyage through European horror cinema. From the silent nightmares of German Expressionism in the wake of World War I to lesbian vampires in 1970s Belgium, from the black-gloved killers of Italy's bloody Giallo thrillers to the ghosts of the Spanish Civil War, Mark reveals how Europe's turbulent 20th century forged its ground-breaking horror tradition. On a journey that spans the continent from Ostend to Slovakia, Mark explores classic filming locations and talks to the genre's leading talents, including directors Dario Argento and Guillermo del Toro.

I'll need to give that a watch, Ambler - I thoroughly enjoyed A History of Horror.

As for best horror?
- The Wicker Man
- Don't Look Now
- Who Saw Her Die?
- The Devil Rides Out
- Theatre of Blood
- Race with the Devil
- The Abominable Dr. Phibes/Dr. Phibes Rises Again
- Dressed To Kill
- Witchfinder General

I'll stop now.
