OK Obi Wan, i think you might be my last hopeâ€¦.
I have searched the internet for years. I cannot find or ID this film. Not sure if it was made for TV or not.
Here’s all I can tell youâ€¦ it was a film shown on tv (may just have been local to the San Francisco Bay Area) at some point in the 70s. I have a vague feeling like it was aired at two different timesâ€¦
But here’s all I remember. Witches. A sort of woods, kind of gray and maybe foggy? And a rag doll (possibly a Raggedy Ann) with a mark of blood on her forehead ( like someone marked her forehead with blood using their finger), and possibly people in 17th-century clothing? I feel like at least a glrl in a cloak in the woods.
That’s it. It’s driven me crazy for 40ish years. I feel at this point like I hallucinated itâ€¦.. hellllp!
Have you looked into NECROMANCY (1972) with Orson Welles & Pamela Franklin? Itâ€™s also known as THE WITCHING. I remember a rag doll of sorts in that one.. and some old school robed witches in the woodsâ€¦
Here is a cool fan edit that combines the two versions of the filmâ€¦Hope it might help!
NOTE: The images used here are from THE WALTONS episode â€œThe Changelingâ€ in which youngest daughter Elizabeth is tormented by a poltergeist. It was the subject of the very first Kindertrauma post 13 years ago! We had our birthday on September 30th! Thanks to all of you who have stuck with and supported us all these years!!!- Unk
Sounds a bit like Eyes of Fire to me.
This DOES sound like Eyes of Fire, though I donâ€™t remember the doll specifically, and that was a mid-80s film…
Happy belated birthday, BTW. Thirteen years serving up awesome content. That’s an incredible accomplishment!!!
Yeah, Eyes of Fire was an early 80’s flick but I seem to recall a scene where someone turns into a creepy doll and then explodes or something. I’d have to watch it again because my memory is a bit hazy on that.
I have no idea what the answer is, but now I’ve got to watch Eyes of Fire over the weekend!
