Movies scenes I have very vague memories of, but have not idea what they were. Any help would be appreciated. This is very early ’80s stuff here. Late night T.V., before cable:
1. A woman becomes possessed by some power, and she is cutting her own fingers off in the kitchen with a kitchen knife and a cutting board.
2. A young girl and guy are fooling around in a barn, on a pile of hay. I think there is a crazy person/monster that is kept in this barn. It makes weird noises, maybe grunts. It either attacks or kills the young couple. Maybe with a pitchfork? Hard to say.
3. Maybe the same movie as number 1. Little people with giant sewing needles sneaking up on a woman in her bed. Not making that up. I know I saw it. Traumatized by that scene! I thought those midgets were going to get me while I was in bed, for weeks after seeing that.
4. Maybe the same movie again. A mother gouges her own eyes out. You don’t see the actual gouging, but she suddenly looks at the camera and there’s just 2 black holes where her eyes should be.
I definitely didn’t dream these movies.
Great idea for a site, btw.

UNK SEZ: Hmmmm, I thought I might be more help than I ‘m going to turn out to be! #4, the “eyeless mother” could be THE STEPFORD WIVES. I’m wondering if #1 may be STEPFORD too, a hand is cut in that movie but not actually on a cutting board. #3 sounds like DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK but I don’t remember there being giant sewing needles. #2 the barn murder with the pitchfork has got me stumped! Pitchfork deaths show up in THE OTHER, THE SLAYER, THE BOOGEYMAN, FRIDAY THE 13TH: PART III and a host of others! If it was more of a shed than a barn it could also be THE INCUBUS! I’m hoping some Kindertrauma readers can help!
