A 10-YEAR-OLD boy has visited a real-life house of horrors where the television is sometimes turned off for hours at a time.
Tom Logan of Bury saw the chilling sight of a blank, lifeless screen at his posh friend Seb’s house and said he found it so unsettling he could not stay in the same room.
He said: “It was just there, dead, and they were talking away as if nothing was wrong, as if the room wasn’t dominated by this unearthly silence.
“I understand something there’s nowt on worth watching, but that’s why they have Channel 4 Racing, MTV or in times of desperation, Sky Sports News.
“Would these monsters just put a black hood on their own family members until they were ready for more of their company?
“It was on later and it lifted my heart to see it so happy, so full of colour and life. Then, with a single push of a red button, they killed it right before my eyes.”
Tom admits he left the house and ran all the way home and right up to his bedroom, where his own television was still happily burbling away just as he had left it six hours earlier.
