SUMMARY

Channel 4 viewers voted on their favourite scary moments from film and television - and this was the result.

CAPSULE REVIEW

Par for the course for this sort of thing - Jimmy Carr is mostly unfunny, the interesting guests get too little time to say anything interesting because the Z-list celebs are wheeled out to hog the valuable air time and there's absolutely no context or history. Lightweight stuff then, OK for the genre newcomer but pretty well worthless to the rest of us.
