Name That Trauma :: Reader Juha H. on the ‘Fur Elise’ Phantom

fandango?!?!....hobo camp!?!?...hobo camp!

Hey guys,

I have a problem that could be right up your alley.

My girlfriend keeps telling me about a horror movie scene that she can’t place and I’m stumped as well.

A guy/girl goes to a big mansion and as he or she is walking upstairs, the piano downstairs starts playing ‘Fur Elise’ and once they make it to the top of the stairs they see a ghost on the opposite end of the hallway who then jumps out of the window.

This scene scared my girlfriend so much she was unable to listen to ‘Fur Elise’ for years afterwards and now she says she would like to see if it still has the same effect on her. I would love to see it as well.

Any help, guys?

    I found a list on Imdb of movies that feature “fur elise” but none of them fit!

    Probably not right (can’t remember wether or not it was even Fur Elise), but didn’t The Gravedancers have a scene with a piano playing ghoulie that attacks a girl by trying to throw her out a window while she tosses the guy down the stairs?
    I’m probably way off. But at least it’s a chance to bring up The Gravedancers. 🙂

    Well, I don’t know the answer,  but massive props for the “Strangers with Candy” pics – and from a hilarious episode too!

    Unfortunately, Fur Elise always makes me think of  this.

    Maybe “The Uninvited (1944)”, about a brother and sister moving into a haunted mansion by the sea?
