Wait Until Dark

Finally got around to watching this horror/Audrey Hepburn classic and liked it very much indeedy. The entire movie takes place inside her basement NY City apartment. And the kicker - she is blind. I didn't know much more than that before I watched it, and if you haven't seen it yet, I recommend not doing too much research before running out and seeing for yourself.

The scenario is very frightening and the terror builds to an incredible climax -- partly because the idea behind the story is so believable (while I do enjoy a good zombie fest, there is something so much scarier about situations that could conceivably happen to anyone, anywhere). The last ten minutes or so ranked #10 on AMC's 100 Scariest Movie Moments Of All Time. If you like good old fashioned suspense and classic, effective horror, add this to your list.

it is fantastic - and much like why i like all hitchcock films too - scary because it's possible.

I enjoyed it too ~~ particularly the fact that it wasn't gory.
