    I have seen it, but it was many years ago. I remember they get to the point where the disturbed boy does what he does, but I don not recall any graphic detail. {Of course, as I said, it was a long time ago. I might have forgotten.}

    I also saw it but it was back in the early 80s (on cable). The film was very intense. Burton was quite good, as was Peter Firth as the boy (both were Oscar-nominated).

    I seem to remember the scene in question being more implied (lots of quick cutting) than shown in graphic detail. It was still very disturbing - the sounds were pretty vivid.

    But as Hugh said, it's been a long time.
