Hello, long time reader here.
A rather creepy memory just popped out when I was talking to a friend about horror movies from our childhoods and It just keeps bugging me that I can’t get some closure. To start I’m not even sure if my memory is about a movie or a TV show since what I saw scared kid me so much that I just changed channels, but ok down to the description:
The “movie” was about a man working in a movie theater or tv station run by an evil entity, kid me interpreted that character as a witch since the Spanish dub used a female actress doing a stereotypical evil witch impersonation but she looked more like a Nazgul from LOTR, a robed figure with only her ghostly and wrinkly hands visible. Said man had to work for the evil entity because… I don’t remember, one of the few memory lagoons that made this even more creepy for kid me.
Anyhow the only scenes that I can remember with some clarity are two:
*The entity watching with delight a cartoon in a monitor inside the theater/tv station. The cartoon was about the entire planet being flooded with blood and the main character drowning alongside every single person in the world, that character was an animated version of the man.
*The man’s son waiting for him to come home during a stormy night, the kid is standing in front of the house’s crystal (?) main door when the lightning creates a projection of a shadow that resembles the evil entity, obviously the kid is terrified and begins to cry and scream only for the door to open and reveal it was the man all along who enters to comfort the child.
This movie or whatever was broadcasted during the morning of a weekend (Sunday I think) so I’m not sure if it was a straight horror movie or some kind of weird horror thing aimed at children since movie channels used to broadcast content for kids and families at that timeslot.
Hope y’all could help me with this. Greetings from Mexico,
