    Magnum - I slept with the light on for a couple of weeks after watching the ring when I was a teenager, it's the only film I've seen that completely freaked me out and disturbed me

    Thanks Flipper.

    I think Hopkins is a wonderful actor. I thought he was fantastic in The Elephant Man.

    I'll check out Instinct and The Human Stain.

    @Magnum - yeah The Ring creeped me out. I first saw it at the cinema in Lincolnshire, visiting friends. I was 23 and living in southern England at the time. I remember driving back down south on the A1 - I was paranoid that I was going to have an accident - all because of watching that film!

    Looking back, it was pretty good.

    I said earlier in this thread I was interested in watching The Serpent and the Rainbow so last Sunday I bought it on ebay. I also ordered Red Eye.

    Well, they both came through the post today. The Serpent and the Rainbow was brand new and cost only £3.00. I thought the movie was ok, pretty good.

    Red Eye was pre-owned, in good condition and cost only £1.90. And it's a pretty damn good suspenseful film. Cillian Murphy plays the bad guy excellently.

    The work of Wes Craven, one of my favourite directors, can honestly be described as a mixed bag but I think Red Eye deserves to be up there with his best work such as A Nightmare on Elm Street, New Nightmare and Scream.
