Yeah I remember watching it too. I was 8 at the time, and scared the shit out of me too.
I remember me and my sister watching it thinking it was real, and my dad trying to convince us it wasn't just because it had "that guy off Red Dwarf in it"
In fact I think he might have turned it off before it finished as it was getting scary.
Some nostalgia made me get the DVD of it for Halloween 2004, and I watched it again. It certainly brought back memories, and some parts of it are a bit silly. But even as a 20 yr old in 2004 there were still bits that scarred me. That part where the camera zooms round the kitchen and for a second you see the reflection of the ghost in the window... bloody hell.
And the bit at the end where Sarah Greene goes into the cupboard under the stairs is just disturbing.
don't make them like that anymore
