Name That Trauma :: Reader Kat on a Guy or Zombie or Ghost Playing Basketball With His Head

September 1st, 2008 by aunt john · 5 Comments

There’s a movie and it takes place in a house and there is a guy (a zombie or a ghost?) using his head as a basketball.

My stepbrother was recently trying to recall said movie that he’d seen as a child and asked me, seeing as how I’m the family’s resident horror nerd, if I knew. I also vaguely remember this movie, but was ashamed to admit I couldn’t recall anything else about it either.

Do you have any idea?

UNK SEZ: I have a feeling I should know this one but I’m drawing a blank. All I can see in my mind’s eye is the bouncing head in ROMAN POLANSKI‘s THE TENANT but that noggin is self propelled! I’m sure one of our readers knows this so let’s let them have at it via email ( or the comments section….

    It could be Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, there’s a scene where the robotic versions of Bill and Ted play basketball with their heads in that. I remember being quite freaked out by it at the time…

    While I can’t be sure, seeing as how there are a lot of youngin’ about, I’m gonna venture a guess and say ‘Night of the Demons 2’. Sure its from 96′, but one man’s blur of a decade is another’s childhood (See clip @ 2min 40 sec)

    Could it be…”The Sixth Man”?

    I want to agree that this is none other than Night of the Demons 2 -=- I’m a big fan of both the first and the second film.Ā  As the kids are killed by the demons they are also taken over by them and one scene does show the kid playing basketball with his own head.Ā  Very good stuff! šŸ™‚
