Name That Trauma:: Reader D. B. on a Voodoo Fire Starter

February 25th, 2014 by unkle lancifer · 6 Comments

OK, so I’ve got one thats been haunting me for twenty years of so. I remember watching this particular trauma on TV in the early nineties. Maybe ’92?

All I remember is a little kid playing with a voodoo doll. I want to say the kid started using the voodoo doll after seeing parents fornicating. – I could be wrong on the motive. I remember the action escalating to a point where the man was set on fire. I’ve had very vivid memories of this particular nightmare, but have never been able to place this movie or TV episode.

I know this isnt much to go on, but it’s all my fading memory has given me to work with. I’ve been a genre fan as far as I can remember and this movie or TV show has yet to cross my path twice.

Any help would be appreciated!

    Drew, I’ve got two suggestions via Facebook.

    One comes from Mandy H. who says “This sounds like the story from The House That Dripped Blood that featured Christopher Lee.”

    “House that Dripped Blood” can be viewed below…..

    The next one comes from our pal Gordon J. Gordon says “The Ghost Story episode with Jodie Foster ends when her voodoo dollhouse catches fire, killing the evil grandpa.

    That episode is called “House of Evil” but I can’t find that online.

    Interestingly, both of those suggestions are works written by ROBERT BLOCH!

    Haha. I know, now we have two Drew B. readers! Maybe we should change this Drew’s name to Drew C or D. Or Drew 2.

    Well, I didn’t mean to take Drew B’s name away from him. Or hijack the comments section of his NTT…

    Apologies other Drew? or am I the other Drew?

    The kid in the picture from CREEPSHOW is one of Stephen King’s sons, Joe Hill, who is now a famous horror author like his dad.
