CRAZY AS A FOX AND PUSHED TO THE 'MAX' : ASYLUM (1972)


#GRABTHECUSHIONITSCUSHING... Here is the second of our SUNDAY posts under our new theme looking at some of the most frightening scenes from Peter Cushing films.... This week it's a clip from Amicus's Asylum (1972) SPOILERS...… In which Dr. Martin (Robert Powell) learns the truth about 'Max' (Geoffrey Bayldon)…. Always found that laugh particularly chilling…. How DOES THIS scene rate in your FAV CUSHING terror scenes???


THE CLIP ABOVE has stirred up some child-hood memories and revisited nightmares over at our PCASUK FACEBOOK FAN PAGE! Here are a small selections of comments from visitors:


W.SLEET:'The climax of 'Blind Alleys' from TALES FROM THE CRYPT was one of my most vivid childhood scares. Many of the Amicus films scared me more so than any of the Hammer films ever did - the combination of the contemporary setting (as opposed to costumed dramatics), plumby acTORs and gleeful gallows humour can be very unsettling - but, even now, this chilly little tale still makes me shudder!'


J.THORLEY: 'This was especially shocking when I was little, I expected a traditional happy ending. See also the hammer house of horror episode The Silent Scream! Really disturbing'.

J.MORROW: 'That last scene with that creepy laugh chilled me to the bone. Geoffrey Bayldon gave an unforgettable performance' 


P.DUFFUS: 'A classic..great music too...Mussorgsky..the PC story my favourite on this one with the suit..' 

D.FULCE: 'Spent a day with Geoffrey a few years back and told him I thought his laugh was on par with Dwight Frys in ' Dracula ' as most chilling ever !!'


B.MAIDMENT: ' I love this film and can watch it again and again. I cant decide
which story I like the best . Herbert Lom with his scary dolls or could it be Brit Eckland as Lucy. Peter Cushing with the suit but I know Geoffrey Bayldon out shines them all in this film Great acting
.


C.CARLEY: Love Geoffrey Bayldon, he was magic as Catweazle and I loved that small role he had in Dracula
