Name That Trauma:: Kristine on a Giant Glue Trap Made for People

April 26th, 2014 by unkle lancifer · 8 Comments

I am a huge horror fan and have been since I was a kid. I watched all the horror shows I could. One that stuck with me was one where there were people in a room that had a sticky floor and they were trying to get out of it. I want to say in the end it was revealed to be just a giant glue trap made for people. I have no idea what it was from and I did some searching and I know it is not from Tales from the Dark Side, Tales from the Crypt or even the Monsters series. I do know that it was in color and not back and white so we can eliminate the old Twilight Zone episodes. I want to say this was during the late ’80s to the late ’90s. If you horror fans can help me remember it I will be eternally grateful.

This sounds really familiar, but I can’t place it. I hope that someone can. (Unfortunately, googling for it I discovered that human feet stuck in glue traps is a very specific fetish. Why hasn’t John Waters included this in one of his films?)

The dumb girl from Just The Ten Of Us met a similar fate in A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 (the best, most MTV and most 1980s ANOES).

I had a crush on the younger (of the older girls), the weird one who kind of looks like a bug (one of these things is not like the other).

And, BOY, did Heather Langenkamp grow up to become a real knockout in New Nightmare or what??

Could it be “The Cube”? Came out in 1997, and it was basically a movie about a trap for people, but I don’t remember the sticky floors, specifically.

The very first thing I thought of when I read this was a short film from a Halloween Saturday Night Live called “Jogger Motel”…this freaked me out when I was a kid!
