Name That Trauma :: Reader Claire on Subterranean Trolls

August 7th, 2010 by unkle lancifer · 3 Comments

I saw it about twelve years ago whilst living in Greece but I think it was older than that. It was American and the Greek title translated as “The Beast.” It was set underground, a bunch of people were potholing and found a cavern filled with trolls or goblins. At one point a man was chained to the floor on a lot of carved symbols and there were flaming torches around. At the end a big troll was holding one of the female characters and got caught in sunlight and they both turned to stone. Then it oddly cut to two of the other characters in bed asleep and the woman waking up saying, ‘We forgot about X’ or, ‘But what about X’ (X being the name of the stone woman I think). Then the man hushed her and the film ended.

Can anyone help?



Thanks to reader craig for taking the good & taking the bad and coming up with GRIM:

    This is a tough one! I can’t find anything that fits. I thought Demons 3: The Ogre, Rawhead Rex and then the Tv movie Gargoyles. None of those is right!

    By the way, the “Facts of Life” theme is a shout out to Amanda by night! Because of her I’ve been listening to The best of Andy Gibb this weekend.

    This really sounds like GRIM (1995). There’s a trailer on IMDB that should confirm if that’s the one.
