Name That Trauma :: Jonathan A. on a Menacing Mystery Mug

November 8th, 2011 by unkle lancifer · 6 Comments

Not my trauma… but it must be someone’s. The image (above) is a screengrab from the music video for INFORMATION SERVICES by MOON WIRING CLUB, found on YouTube, which appears to consist largely of clips from strange stuff that once aired on British television.

Some of the images belong to a reportedly very scarring episode of PLAY FOR TODAY called Robin Redbreast, which is notorious for being Brit TV’s HARVEST HOME/THE WICKER MAN and is a bit of a holy grail for fans of the weird and obscure, but I have had no luck at all tracking down whatever production this creepy image appeared in. I’m pretty sure it was a TV production, so chances are pretty good that someone out there saw it at an impressionable age and has been dreaming about it ever since, so I was wondering if you could post the pic and the YouTube (video) and, hopefully, some kind soul could finally satisfy my curiosity about this thing, whatever it is.

Love the site!

UPDATE: NAME THAT TRAUMA SOLVED! Kudos to reader chopmeup for naming it with the SUPERNATURAL (1977) episode “Dorabella.”

    Unfortunately, I have nothing for Johnathan A. but….

    I checked out that Folk Horror Review site that Unk linked and they are releasing Children of the Stones on DVD! Holy Macaroni! Only problem is that it is region 2, but surely this hurdle can be overcome.

    Now they just need to release The Witches and the Grinnygog….

    The image is from Supernatural (TV Series 1977) Episode 8: Dorabella.
