El Quiosco del Tefefono

SEMINAL SHORT horror film of indeterminate Spanish origin, premiered in the UK on BBC2 in Royal Wedding ’81 week, then shown endlessly on early Channel 4 between OTV commercials. Mustachioed middle-aged guy has trouble in a telephone box, then discovers – aaaagh! He can’t get out! He calls for help to passers by, but they seem more amused than anything, and a crowd gathers. Finally, a fork lift comes to unload the box onto a truck, where it’s driven out of town into a deserted warehouse where…ah, now that would be spoiling it!
