Michael and son, Columba, Powell on the set of Peeping Tom (1960)

Since H.G. Wells, Arthur Clarke, and Ray Bradbury, they have all tried to think up frightening machines but it’s very difficult to achieve. I don’t think there is anything more frightening than a camera, a camera which is filming and which is watching you.
