Name That Trauma:: Leece on a Haunted School

For years I’ve tried identifying a movie based on a few scenes from my memory with no luck.

I went to a daycare as a child in a HUGE haunted plantation home here in Texas from the 1800s. My teacher knew I never napped during nap time, so she’d let me sit in a separate room alone and watch scary movies.

The movie in question was a ghost movie, scenes in a possibly haunted school, likely from the 80s. I also remember a scene where a construction vehicle was moving a ton of dirt. I also remember kids walking down a hallway in said school and a scene in the bathroom. That’s about it.

Thank you for reading!

Reminds me of Prom Night (1980) flashback scene. Know that was a convent not a school – but looks like one. Not sure if there was any dirt movers – but this was my flashback.

Those are some scarce details.

Any further details? For example:

was the film American or foreign?

Black and white or color? (guessing color)

Was it on broadcast. VCR or what?

I have to say that your story of actually watching the horror movie in a daycare on a haunted plantation sounds like a pretty good set-up for a horror movie itself.

The construction detail … Did “The Gate” have any construction stuff? “Poltergeist”? They both had construction/digging going on at least in the periphery.
