  1. Although it was The Exorcist that creeped me out just a smidgen more when I climbed those stairs to do a telephone repair. I parked at the petrol station below and climbed those stairs.

  2. I remember seeing this at the theater when it first came out. A crack of light showing through underneath a doorway has terrified me ever since.

  3. Ma sed I awa a changeling …… or maybee it was a duckling ……

    I cant remememver , but it was pretty kool …..

  4. Yesterday upon the stair
    I met a man who wasn’t there
    He wasn’t there again today
    I wish, I wish he’d go away

    When I came home last night at three
    The man was waiting there for me
    But when I looked around the hall
    I couldn’t see him there at all!
    Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
    Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door

    Last night I saw upon the stair
    A little man who wasn’t there
    He wasn’t there again today
    Oh, how I wish he’d go away
    “Antigonish” (1899)

    And one of Mearns’ parodies of this poem

    As I was falling down the stair
    I met a bump that wasn’t there;
    It might have put me on the shelf
    Except I wasn’t there myself.

    Actually reading the post title, I was expecting the Clint Eastwood produced movie of the same title. .

    Which is based on or inspired by a real horror event from 1928, when a child disappeared. Taken by people that had kidnapped, molested and murdered 3 boys. The mother abused by authorities, thrown into a mental hospital, when she refused to accept a different boy who claimed to be her missing son.
