I have three movies or shorts that scared the living daylights out of me as a child. Funnily enough I saw two of them at the same childhood friends house. I have the impression his parents didn’t think we’d remember any of these movies, oh how wrong they were.
The first I am fairly certain was a black and white short film involving a kid riding his tricycle in an old man’s cornfield and pumpkin patch. It seemed set in the fall season. The old man who owns the land seems to think there is an animal in his patch and decides to go out and shoot it. The child is accidentally killed. My memory is hazy of what happened next. All I remember is pumpkins and corn filled with blood. ‘70s I believe.
The second, and I believe this was a movie w/color, was a ship in space somewhere. At one point in the movie a man is out on a walkway on the spaceship keeping in contact with a control room. The men in the control room are apparently trying to track down a noise. The man on the walkway turns and says something like, “There’s nothing out here.” All of the sudden an alien/monster pounces on the man and rips apart his rib cage. ‘80s I think.
The third is a martial arts movie where the hero wields a chain with a blade on the end of it (or at least he is by the end of the movie). When he whips that thing around, gore follows. I couldn’t tell how old this movie was; it was in color and could be from the ‘70s thru the ‘90s.
Does anyone recognize these films or shorts? I would love to watch these movies again as I am a pretty big horror film fanatic now.
Thanks Kindertrauma, great site!
