I have been searching for a long time, but I only have a small fragment to go on. I am hoping it rings a bell for somebody!
This is a movie that has been broadcasted on T.V. in the late ‘70s. I think this must have been in 1976 and 1977. I think it was broadcasted on Channel 56 (WLVI Boston). I am sure it was not part of the CREATURE DOUBLE FEATURE that WLVI always had on in the weekends (anybody remember that?) But I do know that this movie came on immediately after THE SHUTTERED ROOM. And this was two years in a row. First came THE SHUTTERED ROOM and then this other movie.
Now, I was 6 at the time and my dad let me watch THE SHUTTERED ROOM with him. Then this other movie came on. I clearly remember the beginning and then my dad quickly switched to another channel. THE SHUTTERED ROOM was apparently OK, but this other movie went too far, even for him. A year later, they both came on again. This time I saw more of the beginning of this second movie, and I got to see a little bit more, before dad got up to switch to a different channel (no remotes way back then.)
Now the beginning, which I remember:
A kid comes home from school, the school bus lets this kid off. I can’t remember if it’s a girl or boy. I am thinking a little girl but not sure on that part. It is either summer or a very nice spring or early fall day. It is sunny; the grass is green, leaves on the trees. The house is a ranch-style house, I think somewhere in the suburbs.
The kid walks up to the house and enters the house. It’s quiet in the house. The kid calls out, “Mom????” No answer. Kid walks to the kitchen. The kitchen looks horrible. Blood everywhere. On the counter, on the floor, and blood-smears on the cabinets. Meanwhile the kid keeps calling, “Mom????”
This has been bugging me big time. What movie is this, and what happened to the mother? Nothing good, I think, it was a lot of blood in there.
The fact that twice it was broadcasted immediately after THE SHUTTERED ROOM made me thought it was some kind of double feature.
Well…. is there anybody out there who can help me out?
UPDATE: NAME THAT TRAUMA SOLVED! Kinderpal Amanda By Night can put another notch in her lipstick case as she solved this one with HOUSE ON GREENAPPLE ROAD.
