    This one i think was from the seventies (may have been made for TV play) - some children get lost or hide somewhere cramped and witness a grotesque long table of horrible people eating the most horrid food (one of the bowls was full of eyes) or she had lots of eyes - one of the children stifle a scream then one of these 'guests' look up - the children panic and flee.I think this was part of a series which i would like to watch again. Anyone have any idea as to what this was? Thanks in advance.

    The Witches, 1990 version of the Roald Dahl story directed by Nicholas Roeg, has a boy staying in a hotel where a coven of witches are meeting. I think he hides and sees them reveal their true identities.

    thanks for your reply - agreed it does sound a bit like a pythonesque cartoon - but if it is, which one i wonder?
    anyway will keep my eye on it.

    excellent melade - i had a quick look through a youtube sample, did not find the scene but it is very similar in this type of people, story line etc. i will have to watch all of it, time permitting, and look out for it. I have to admit i thought it was a tv play but i could be wrong on that.
    again thanks for your time ( will confirm if it is later)

    don't think its that one but it looks worth watching in its own right in any case.
