Name That Trauma:: Jason From Brazil on an Actress Tormented by a Fire Scarred Former Friend

May 27th, 2015 by unkle lancifer · 6 Comments

Hello from Brazil! My name is Jason and I’m a big fan of your site.

First of all, sorry for my bad English.

Well, there’s this movie ( I guess I watched it around 1994) and I can’t remember many details about it, but here goes the “main details”. Basically, it’s about an actress (I’m not sure if she’s a movie star or a TV actress) and the mysterious murders/bad things that happen to her and to the ones closer to her.

By the end of the movie, we learn that one of the women from the make up/fx crew is the muderer: she’s revealed as a girl from the main actress’ past; she tried to ruin her birthday party (when they were kids) and was severely burned when her hair caught on fire as she got too close to the candles. So, years later, she used her skills to disguise herself and to get close to the actress and ruin her life.

I guess this is it… Maybe some of these details are off, but I’ve only watched it once in 20 years! LOL.

Thank you very much. I hope you can help me!

    Never seen it, but it sounds cool!

    Can you remember any specific details that stand out, like a unique or unusual setting, or what kind of show/movie the actress was staring in? And did it look like a newer or older movie?

    I know this isn’t the answer, Jason from Brazil, but what you describe vaguely reminds me of ‘Popcorn’ which I love.

    Buy a bag! Go home in a box!

    RIP Tom Villard

    I hope this one gets identified. It sounds really good. The description reminds me a little of MADHOUSE (1981), one of my favorites….

    I posted this on IMDb’s “I Need to Know” board and I believe it’s been solved. It is “Overexposed” from 1990:

    I know I’m a little late to the party, but I also have been searching for the title of this movie for about 20 years now. YOU GUYS ROCK! Thank you!
