Missed this thread. I was just thinking about that programme, would love to see it again. I remember at the start they superimposed the Today Tonight title credits over the scene from Zombie Flesh Eaters where the girl sees the zombie coming out of the ground and it then bites her in the throat. They played the TT theme music over it too so it was kind of weird juxtaposition. Other clips that I remember them showing were two from Maniac, one strangling scene and the bit where the killer shoots the couple in a car with a shotgun. The bit from The Evil Dead where Ash chains his possesed girlfriend to the table and starts up the chainsaw and there were two clips from Driller Killer including the infamous head drilling scene.

Links to some contemporary newspaper articles about the Today Tonight special.

Nenagh Guardian 10/05/86

Munster Express 04/04/86

They give a good insight into the over the top reaction at the time.

I remember this. One of only two TT episodes that i remember with any clarity, the other was on teenage drinking. Did anyone tape this when it was shown?
