Alan Whicker braves A Handful of Horrors
"I don't like my monsters to have Oedipus complexes..."
Many people enjoy being scared - will pay for the pleasure of being frightened out of their lives. Tellers of ghost stories have profited from this shadowed side of our natures for centuries; today a considerable industry satisfies the needs of the cult followers of Horror magazines and Horror films - even Horror ballet.
Alan Whicker braves that Unspeakable Something in cellar and grave-yard in an attempt to find out why we like to be frightened, and talks to those who do the frightening.
