Name That Trauma:: Lorraine on a Backbreaking Monster Sex Scene

Hey, it’s me again, Lorraine, and this has been nagging at me for ages. Years ago, I was made to go to bed by my parents because they were watching a movie that was “only for grownups.” I think they might have also had company over. Well, being the little devil that I was, I decided to sneak in and watch it. To this day, I do not think that they know that I saw it. The scene that I walked in on involved a couple. I didn’t know it at the time, of course, but looking back on it, I am certain that the couple was having sex.

I’m not completely sure, but I -think- that the woman was blonde and the guy had brown hair, and I’m almost certain that the bed was completely white. Pillows, sheets, mattress, everything. Well, the scene eventually cut to an aerial shot of the couple, giving a perfect view of the guy’s back. Then, to my absolute horror, his back split open! He didn’t even seem to react! There was so much blood, and the monster in his back had a mouth, making a sound that would strike terror into any little kid. I ran back to bed as quietly as my little feet could manage, still shivering with fright, and I’m sure that I must have slept with one eye open that night.

It’s been years, and I have still not figured out what the movie was. Do you have any idea?

Reading this made me think of Hellraiser III but I’m probably totally off base.

I just thought of this – In the Mouth of Madness has a sort of similar scene with a monster in someone’s back but it is lacking the white bed and sheets, etc.

Lorraine:

It’s unfortunate, but this is a common trick in Z-grade horror movies. As a prepubescent boy in the early 1980s, I can’t tell you how may sleepovers my friends and I spent, in which we were lured into a horror movie romance scene with the promise of seeing boobies, only to be traumatized by some sort of alien/monster popping out of someone’s body.

The trauma is probably what kept me away from girls until my early 30s.

Sincerely, Tom Khagai
