I’ve run this one by the folks at IMDb a while back and I don’t think they came up with the correct answer. This is probably the best spot to solve it because I THINK it might be a made-for-TV movie, and you guys are so good at solving those.
Back in the early ’80s there was something that played on TV that I was only able to catch a small bit of. We were at my grandparents and they only had antennae TV here in Canada, so it couldn’t have been too avant garde. It also played within a fairly early time bracket (late afternoon or early evening) so that’s what makes me think it was possibly a replay of a made-for-TV movie movie.
Anyway, there was a scene where two men are digging up a grave with a lady in it. They were interested in taking the ring she had on her finger. As they’re doing so, she wakes up, there’s a REALLY awkward moment shared among them, and then one of the men slams a pic-ax (or something) into her chest. I was so young and the recollection is so foggy, but it seems to me that she was wearing a gold turban or dress. I also remember my grandmother commenting on how good she looked considering she’d been buried in a grave, so she wasn’t a rotted corpse. I also don’t think she had any fangs because I never once thought she was a vampire (but it sure sounds like vampire stuff).
Any help on this one?
