As kids we always see things differently than we do as adults. I remember the film DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK a made for TV horror movie from the 70’s starring KIM DARBY. This was a bit different than most made for television movies because this one was actually scary! Those little creature things SCARED the hell out of me when I was young and they were some smart little bastards as well! I have recently watched this movie again I will admit that it did not have quite the same effect on me as it did when I was a kid. Even still, the creatures (Which I have called Prune Heads for years) are still pretty damn creepy. This film is still the scariest “made for television” movie that I have ever seen.
