I have been looking for this one for years and could use your expert help.
One day, in the early 90s, I turned on my black and white TV to the only channel it got, which was a UHF PBS channel in Washington State, and there was a very strange film being shown. (I believe it was British, like most things on the channel.) What I saw began with two people in a car diving up to a forested hill in the country and getting out. (My memories are super rusty…) I think they may have been cops. They walked into the forest and explored until they came upon an old house/shack. They went inside and found an old box…. they opened the box and… there was a baby with one eye inside the box – alive. Just then, they saw someone running off in the woods and one of the men chased after them. I don’t know why, but it gave my child mind the creep chills and I shut it off.
I vaguely remember looking it up in a TV guide later and finding something called “The boy in the box”, but again, my memories are likely rotten and I’m getting it mixed up with the classic Corey Hart song.
Any ideas would be appreciated – thanks!
