Couch 3: The Nightmare Man (BBC, 1981, dvd)

Funny that. I was thinking (again) of this old tv show from the 80's. Couldn't remember its name, but it stuck in my mind for one scene, which gets dragged from the deepest recesses of my mind into my imagination on windy, noisy nights on the hill. oooooOOOOooooo

So, there I was, looking in HMV's "sale" for a film night tonight, and come across the said program on dvd. "The Nightmare Man". IMDB page.

I wonder how tame it will look when watching it tonight over a few beers? Turns out the remote Scottish island was part of Cornwall. Hey ho, that's spoilt the illusion already.

Cost me a tenner in HMV, only a quid dearer than, so I don't feel ripped off. Which is nice.

As to the scene? Well, I won't spoil it for you if you haven't seen it, but a tent is involved.
