So, I found this recently on the National Archives and watched it, and it's so interesting. A real, old-time thriller

. The information is lifted from the site, which in turn is lifted from imbd. It's also got a psychological 'game' named after it. What really got me was the amount of emotion in it, it's superbly well acted and the voyeuristic perspective of the viewer makes for eerie watching, even though you know what's happening, and the twobvious fairly obvious. Very glad that I found this site, they've got heaps of stuff, from the original 'Alice in Wonderland' to all kinds of gritty foreign horror. Take a look, seriously.

Gaslight, 1940, aka 'Angel Street'

Tagline: "Patrick Hamilton's famous play brought to the screen - thrill by thrill as only the British know how!'

From IMDb:
