Trivia

Briefly re-released during the height of the slasher movie: the film was renamed "I'm Alone and I'm Scared" and given more lurid marketing. The campaign wasn't a success. See more »

Goofs

When Amanda walks out the door into the yard she is frightened by clothing which hits her in the face from a spinning clothesline. In a subsequent shot we see the back door & clothesline positions in relation to each other. It would be highly unlikely and next to impossible that somebody exiting the door would not notice the white clothes on a spinning clothesline and avoid them instead of walking into the path of the clothes.

Surprisingly creepy British horror flick.
11 January 2003 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Amanda(Susan George),a young babysitter is called to watch the child at an isolated British manor.The child's mother,Helen(Honor Blackman),has had her husband committed after he tried to murder her and the child.Helen's psycho husband(excellent Ian Bannen)returns home and terrorizes young Amanda while Helen and her new boyfriend are out on the town.The film is pretty creepy-there are numerous false scares which work pretty well.The most surprising is the fact that "Fright" is pretty similar to "Halloween"-for example both movies take place mostly at night with a babysitter in peril.There is no gore and nudity at all,but like I said before,there are some effective scares throughout the film.I agree that "Fright" is pretty boring at times,but if you are a fan of British horror cinema give this one a look!
