The single scariest movie seen as a youth.
I was able to view this film in Pattonville Germany, in the theater on post. I was 13 or 14 years old at the time. It was a matinée and cost a whole thirty-five cents to see.

This movie is the standard I use to base any and all horror films on, it still gives me the shivers.

It has only been some 30 years ago but I remember the line of the witness when the movie opened when the bus?/truck screeches over the old man, MY GOD HE'S STILL ALIVE the guy says as the guinea pig runs across the screen to the left.

My memory of the asphyx being caught in the light, and the noise of the thing screeching, the man they were hanging was moving around and twitching on the end of the rope, still just freaks me out.
