These used to be on BBC1 and ITV late-night all the time during the early 90s when I was growing up - such a crying shame they've disappeared from the schedules. One of my favourites was Dying Room Only, starring Cloris Leachman, in the 'my husband's gone missing and everybody claims they haven't seen him' plot. It was well creepy, and at 70 minutes just enough to sustain interest and credibility.

As with all films yes there was some right TVM crap about (they really went downhill from the mid 80s), but there are also many of them that are more cinematic than many a big-budget, big-screen outing - even more so today IMHO.
