Name That Trauma :: Reader Karol L. on a Nail in a Noggin

October 25th, 2010 by aunt john · 5 Comments

Hey there,

I remember watching some B-horror flick when I was little and I can’t for the life of me remember the title or much of the plot. I remember two scenes however:

The first one involved a young couple camping somewhere at night, messing around, playing hide-and-seek (possibly near a lake?) The chick runs off to hide in some shed, but there’s something in there that drives a huge nail through her head.

The second scene I remember was some CCTV footage from a security camera in a hospital, where this creature walked between the staff yet nobody seemed to notice it.

Any ideas?


UNK SEZ:: Karol, I’m not completely sure about this but the first scene you describe sounds a lot like 1981’s THE INCUBUS. If memory serves there is a young couple hanging out by a quarry and at some point they hide from each other in a shed. I think the guy ends up with the nail in his head though. I don’t recall the CCV bit so I might be wrong. If anyone has another idea let us know!

    I don’t know about hide-and-seek, but there’s some genuinely brutal nail-in-head action (big nail, more like railroad spike) in “Superstition.”

    That’s a good possibility! There’s a lake in “Superstition” too!

    I believe the second trauma was the Exorcist 3, specifically this scene:
