Name That Trauma :: Reader Jamie B. on a Head Driller & Parent Killers

Do any of these sound familiar?

1. Horror film from the ‘80s or possibly early ‘90s. Throughout the movie people are terrorized by a man with a huge drill on his head. I remember the last scene vividly. The main character thinks he has woken from the nightmare and it’s all over, but he’s still dreaming. He might wake again two more times? The room is full of neon blues and greens and all the walls are at odd angles, like in a fun house. The drill man rips through the floor at the end, laughing maniacally. That high-pitched drill sound! Yeeeaugh. The fright it still gives me!

2. This must have been an episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE / OUTERLIMITS / CREEPSHOW or something from the late ’80s/early ’90s. Children are secretly communicating with aliens, plotting a parenticide. The adults are completely oblivious, because their plans look like play. Parents are murdered in the end. This chills my bones just thinking about it.

Your site is spectacular! I hope someone knows these…

Thanks a million,

    1) A full-sized guy? Otherwise I’d say that sounds like Tunneler from the “Puppetmaster” movies.

    2) This sounds like the Ray Bradbury classic “Zero Hour,” which was adapted for “Ray Bradbury Theater” in 1992.

    I agree with senski – sounds like Tunneler to me on Item 1.  Check the youtube below – look familiar?
