It's been a long time since I posted. Went to see 'The Woman in Black' and it was one of the scariest, creepiest films I've ever seen. I actually screamed out loud at one scene, something I hadn't done since the severed arm dropped out of the closet in 'Jurassic Park' and the head bobbed up in 'Jaws' and the little alien popped out of John Hurt's chest in 'Alien.'

I ran across this on YouTube, I hadn't realized anyone had posted this. Mike Jittlov was a true genius, but he just started becoming famous when CGI came in in the mid 1980s, so there just wasn't the call for stop-action that there was before. I met him a couple of times, he was a very nice fellow.

Again, there isn't a single frame of CGI in this short; it's all stop-action.

Yeah, see, that right there? That's why there's no way in hell I'm ever going to watch it, Dan or no Dan. I just don't like being scared like that, especially because I'm totally the type who would have nightmares for WEEKS because of it. I'll just stay in my own happy, fluffy little world.

(Why, yes, I am a wimp, thanks. :P)
