It's so hard to me to sleep early… maybe that's 'cause I always used to watch films until late at night. The problem is that my father prohibited me to watch TV after a certain time. As expected, I created a method of watching TV without ever being caught. It was simple: a small gap was left from my bedroom door and, at any evidence of the presence of an adult in the nearby hall, the TV set was immediately turned off through the remote control and than I'd close my eyes.
Ow, many many titles were watched this way, usually low-quality open TV movies, with poor Portuguese audio and amongst several interruptions by long commercial intervals and unwanted visitors by my door.
There was one night, however, in which I watched something with an unusual but seductive plot: a psychotic truck driver chases a common man though the highway in order to kill him after feeling offended by being outdated. Note: this plot is by the very same Richard Matheson.
I wasn't more than 7 yo back then and can't remember if I slept well that night. Probably not… but only many years later I figured out it was a classic TV movie directed by the good old Spielberg, and its name was Duel (1971). Never forgot it... it's impossible!
