Name That Trauma:: Josh M. on a Forceful Forest & an Imploding Music Box

Seasons Greetings Kinderdudes!

Let’s get right to it.

I recently saw just the intro of a movie, that I never ended up watching the rest of….follow me?

This young girl is walking home from school (most likely) and she is strolling down a forest path. She either hears something or senses something, and then all I remember is the ‘forest’ literally pulling her in! Then the camera closes in on either a music box or record player as it seems to crumble/slowly implode.

Ok, WHAT!?!?!

Please help, I’d love to see the rest of this movie.

Awesome site as always!

That’s 1981’s The Appointment, with Edward Woodward. Here’s part 1 on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeNO49KF5p0

That’s gotta be “The Appointment”, from 1981 with Edward Woodward. I was just thinking about this one the other day; you must have read my mind! I wish I could say that the rest of the movie is as good as the opening, which is one of my favorite horror intros ever; but alas, the rest of it kind of falls flat in comparison. Still, the first 3 minutes are worth the price of admission.

At least you got it embedded, Karswell. Teamwork!

I’m also impressed that we both felt it necessary to go out of our way to point out that it stars The Equalizer.

It has three or four “jump” scares–one involving a mechanic that’s more than a bit contrived–but the majority of the film is devoted to A Pervasive Sense of Dread (and a squicky hint of incest) hidden in the midst of a tiny British domestic squabble.

I found it hypnotic, actually, and while it’s neither gory nor has a high body count, it pays off. The climactic car crash and aftermath is a masterpiece, and the finale is a nice bit of creepy.
