Name That Trauma:: Darkko on Bumpy Maggot Bites

January 6th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Hello everyone at KT,

I’ve been searching on and off for years, looking for a film that traumatized me as a child.

I remember a kid, maybe around 8-12 years old. He either gets lost or escapes into a forest. Exhausted, the kid falls asleep. He wakes up, covered in bumpy bites. Upon inspecting them, maggots start to come out of the sores!

This was extra disturbing to me, as my dad would spend much of his free time tanning outside. I would witness flies landing on him, and I thought for sure what happened in this film would happen to him!

I was probably around 12 when I saw it, so late 80s or early 90s is when I most likely watched it. I thought it might be The Emerald Forest 1985, but I just watched it and it was a no go.

Thanks for any help, and long live KINDERTRUAMA!

~ Darkko
