Name That Trauma :: Reader GhostManor on Classroom Creepfests

name that trauma

Hello,

Love the site. A good friend and I were reminiscing about scary movies that our teachers projected in class during the ’70s & early ’80s. The teacher would declare a certain day as a movie day and a student would be sent to the A/V room to return with a 16mm projector.

I remember being herded into the gym one day in the 70’s and watching WINTER OF THE WITCH……not really scary but fun, and on another day seeing Disney’s SKELETON DANCE on 16mm.

My friend has a memory of a short film about a family of settlers being haunted or threatened by something that lived in the woods at the edge of a field. Does that ring a bell for anyone?

Thanks for any help.

Can’t help you on the trauma, but just got excited that I learned something today; watching that short film WINTER OF THE WITCH, I immediatly recognized the narrator’s voice from TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE and thought, “That guy really should have got more work–he’s amazing at being cryptic”. When I IMDB’d it, it found out it was Burgess Meredith. Wow! Love that guy!

Do I get a special prize for knowing the banner pictures of Jamie Lee and Robert Englund are from an episode of Nancy Drew? Lol

That ‘settlers in the woods’ query brings to mind ‘Eyes Of Fire’, but it’s not a short film.

I love Winter of the Witch. They filmed it in my home town, and I’m pretty sure I know where the house is.

NO WAY! I watched Winter of the Witch and was surprised to learn that this is based on one of my kids’ favorite bedtime stories – “Old Black Witch” by Wende and Harry Devlin .We’ve read it so much to him that we now have a pretty good witchy voice.
“BATS, CRICKETS AND SNAKE’S KNEES”! My son will love it.
