Name That Trauma :: Reader Christopher W. on a Dead Bird Dance

April 25th, 2011 by aunt john · 7 Comments

I remember watching this in the late ’80s. A group out in the wilderness (possibly couples), being stalked or with a sadistic type of leader. The scene that sticks in my mind: The group encounters a dead animal (a bird I think) and a woman is coerced by her husband or boyfriend to strip and dance like a native around said bird. She is fully nude and he cheers it on while taking pictures (I think) and she appears humiliated while the others look disgusted.

I’m pretty sure it’s a Canadian flick. Don’t think it’s DEATH WEEKEND, although I haven’t seen it.

Can anyone help?

    For some reasom I think it might be RITUALS, but that’s just a guess because of the mention of Canadian wilderness. I can’t pin-point that exact scene in my head; just seems like it might have been in that movie.

    That’s a good guess Craig considering the location but I can’t remember any women being in the cast of RITUALS….

    It’s been a while though…

    something tells me I know this one but I just can’t put my finger on it.

    Thanks for the comments, but I know it’s not RITUALS. Unk is right…no women. I combed the Canuxploitation site and no luck. My description is vague, but I remember that scene pretty vividly and I recalled it as I was watching RITUALS!

    I’ve seen ‘Death Weekend’ (The House by the Lake) several times, I like rape and revenge films. I don’t recall anything like the scene you described in the movie. Why isn’t that on DVD? Those creepy pictures that accompany the post, where did they come from?

    godmonster, those pictures are from “Elvira: Mistress of the dark”

    Thanks, never seen that one. Both of those pictures are just really disturbing.
