THE EXORCIST still creeps me out more than most any other horror film.

I hate it when that happens. I, to this day can recall a horror film I watched the start of when I was like 6, that was on on a Saturday. It wouldn't have been a classic, or anything very good, but the scenes I saw are somehow stuck on me forever! Could even have been a TV movie!

I doubt it - the snippets are clear but fragmented. Um, set in US starts in lighting and rain, a wood panelled station wagon (maybe a Ford or something like a Country Squire) driving to a house, where one or two women live, then a young woman just busying herself about the house (or maybe looking for someone), goes down to a basement or laundry room and when she goes back up she passes a large wicker (?) basket, and the camera closes in to the ajar lid and you see a woman's lifeless eyes staring out as her body has been left there recently by a killer - it's pretty random. It's probably just some straight to video claptrap, not classic or noteworthy horror, and after all these years my certainty might be misplaced but if it rings any bells then great!

'It' was outstanding, but how do you stand on the reveal of the creature? Everyone I know loves it up until that point and then it was like the reveal killed the whole thing.

Neither did I. But the background story about It in the end of the novel was not much better. They captured the atmosphere of the childhood theme very well in the movie.
