Name That Trauma:: Reader Goorlap on an Electrifying Helicopter Fall

October 9th, 2012 by unkle lancifer · 5 Comments

Almost a year ago you guys helped me out with 2 movies. Thanks again for that. Now I’ve got a new movie I’m looking for. Here’s the description:

It’s a British 80’s horror movie (maybe 70’s). Don’t remember a lot of it. All I know is there was a scene where a guy hangs from a helicopter and falls off, landing on electrical wires and being electrocuted.

In another scene there was one (or multiple) people getting a tourguide in a factory. If I can remember correctly, an accident happened, someone fell into one of the machines (but I’m not sure about this anymore).

So I hope you guys can help me out with this one.

Thanks in advance and kind regards.


UNK SEZ: I may have this one Goorlap! Could you possibly be thinking of the Australian vampire flick THIRST(1979)? I’m pretty sure that HENRY SILVA falls out of a helicopter in that one and lands on some electrical wires (you can catch a glimpse of that in the trailer below) and I recall some tours through a (blood) factory too! Hope this helps but do let me know if I’m off the mark!

    I’ve seen some clip from a movie probably set in the Depression Era where there is a factory machine death. It might have been a textile factory and there is a scene where a woman gets pulled into the machine. A cop goes in to investigate the scene, sees the mangled corpse and then has to run outside to vomit. Don’t know the movie. Might have been made in the 90’s or 2000’s.

    Yep, Thirst is the movie I was looking for, thanks once again.

    @FatherOfTears: I believe the movie you are looking for is The Mangler. The first Mangler movie is from 1995, starring robert englund. There are 2 sequels.

    Check the trailer below:

    A guy gets pulled into a machine at the beginning of Stephen King’s Graveyard Shift. There’s also Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, where Augustus Gloop falls into the liquid chocolate and gets stuck in one of the machines because he’s too fat.
