There is a 'Charley Says 2' DVD, which has another 150 PIF's from the 50's to early 90's.

Not as good as Vol 1, but still worth buying for a few quid.

I see the classic 'Fog' PIF was still being used in the late 90's, after 20 years.

"You might as have come in your pants"

The scariest PIF was, I think, called "Deep Water".
It would frighten the life out of the average 7 year old at the time.

That was the grim reaper one wasnt it!
The narrator was Donald Plesance if im not mistaken.
Very spooky, but it did the trick.

Just checked and it was called "Lonely Water" and the voice-over was by Donald Pleasance
Watch it here http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/film ... lonely.htm

... and there was the one with Rolf Harris "Kids and water, they love it"

And then right at the end some kid shouts "He's fallen in the water" in a voice that was quite funny!
