This scene has haunted me for many restless nights. There was a vampire movie that came out on T.V. back in the late ‘80s or early ‘90s that had this particular scene where this teenager was lying in bed, looking out the window. When all of a sudden this boy, with a pale white face comes floating, horizontally up to his/her window, and beckons him/her to open it. The teenager slowly gets up and opens the window. Just thinking about it gives me the creeps.
UNK SEZ: Katherine, that’s an easy one! That has got to be one of the greatest moments in Kindertrauma history! It’s from TOBE HOOPER‘s television adaptation of STEPHEN KING‘s SALEM’S LOT. That child vampire scratching at the window scene has been the cause of countless sleepless nights and I’m sure many a wet bed. As a child, watching that scene and then having to retire to your bedroom to sleep is almost like returning to the scene of the crime. No wonder it’s had such a lasting effect!
