Name That Trauma :: Reader Joe S. on a Vengeful Hunting Trip Gone Wrong.

August 15th, 2014 by unkle lancifer · 6 Comments

Hi all:

I have a Name that Trauma that I’ve always been wanting to send but have been too lazy to type it up and send it. Anyway, I can’t remember if this was an actual movie or perhaps just a short on a show like NIGHT GALLERY. I remember watching it back with my uncle in about the early ’80s and then remembered one of my friends talking about it, so I know it existed and wasn’t a fever dream.

Here’s what I remember:

It starts with a group of friends going hunting and then one of them mistakenly shoots someone from a different hunting party, a small firefight ensues and a couple of members on both sides are shot. I think the rest of the movie (short?) entails this group of hunting buddies trying to convince some of their other friends to go back with them next year to try to take out the rest of the other hunting party for revenge.

The friends end up humoring them and go with them the next year thinking nothing was going to happen. But of course, when they get there and end up at the river where the first event happened, trap doors open up on the other side and men pop out and starting shooting at them…and then I swear, I even remember there being a tank that they uncovered that started shooting at them.

That’s about all I can remember from it, if anyone can help me that’d be awesome because it’s been bugging me for years!

    Just to add to it. I’m absolutely sure it wasn’t Southern Comfort or Deliverance (awesome movies) but in that kind of style of movie. Thanks for posting my Kindertrauma, awesome website!

    Zombiejoe! We got this message from Billy V. via Facebook…

    “Hey guys! The film that the Name That Trauma is describing today has GOT to be the Canadian thriller SHOOT from 1976. Directed by Harvey Hart and starring Cliff Robertson, Ernest Borgnine and Henry Silva. It is frustratingly difficult to see.”

    Saw this one several years ago… weird movie. I’m not sure I ever got what it was trying to say… if it was trying to say anything.

    Zombiejoe, I’m so glad we could help you find it! The thanks goes to Billy V! I’m going to have to put that on my list of things to watch too.
