While scrolling through movies to watch on Amazon Prime last night, I stumbled upon something I hadn’t see since I was probably in my single digits age-wise. But before I tell you about the movie I found, let me preface that by saying that back in the 70’s and 80’s – there were some pretty creepy made-for-TV movies out. And one of those movies that always stuck with me was the 1977 anthology offering Dead Of Night.
Comprised of three tales, the only one really worth mentioning is the last one called ‘Bobby‘ (unless of course you enjoy watching Ed Begley Jr fawn over an old car). It’s a creepy little yarn about a mother who summons her deceased son back from the dead, after he drowned. And yes, his name is Bobby – hence the name of the story. Btw – if you want to do a fun drinking game, take a shot every time Bobby says “Mommy“. But anyway, when I saw this as a kid – it scared the shit out of me. Especially the very last shot. Now, if you want to watch the whole segment – seek it out on Amazon Prime. If you just want to see the last scene that I’m talking about, watch the Youtube clip below with subpar video quality.
Yeah, that’s 3 shots you have to take just from watching that 40 second clip. Mommy!
