is it anything like salon kitty? dirty, dirty little film (though i confess i did like the bit when the nazi officers were throwing sausages at the lady-slave with the target painted around her nether-regions - creative.)
i like the quaint paranoia of john wyndham (if it does fit into the paranoia being discussed), hence my tag i suppose. governments/aliens/mutations/phenomena all out to get YOU. A creative product of the pervading fear instilled by both wars, 2 in particular - much like film noir in that respect. day of the triffids is one of my favourite books, and the film village of the damned (based on the midwich cuckoos) scares the living shit out of me.
the book i have read most recently that filled me with a hollow cold dread was the handmaids tale, by margaret atwood - anybody read it?
oh - someone's already mentioned p.k.dick - i wholeheartedly agree - his personal drug induced paranoia comes out vividly in his writing - non just in the storylines, but in the stoccato quick-fire sentences -quality.
