Name That Trauma :: Reader Kevin M. on a Ghoul-Faced Girl Sitting in the Woods

October 14th, 2013 by unkle lancifer · 3 Comments

Hello There!

So there is a movie that I only remember watching the beginning of that scared the bejeezus out of me when I was young. I think it was British, and I think it had something to do with vampires. The part I remember seeing (and I apologize it has been a long time but it has stuck with me) is there is a young woman with blonde hair sitting in the forest and someone comes up to her from behind, it’s a POV shot, and goes to tap the girl on the shoulder and when she turns around, her face is all disfigured like she looks like a ghoul (or a vampire!?) I also remember a shot of a mirror, like a handheld mirror on the ground that drops of blood start falling on. So yeah, not much to go on, but even in the Internet age I haven’t been able to figure out what movie this is.

Thanks so much for your help.

Kevin M.

    I don’t know the answer to this one but it really made me think of BLOOD and ROSES.

    So this is not a real guess but I just thought I’d mention that movie and point out how much the girl coming to the window in the dream sequence in that movie feels so much like a similar scene in SALEM”S LOT…

    How come nobody wants to put this movie on DVD?

    I seemed to remember a scene like that in CAPTAIN KRONOS: VAMPIRE HUNTER (1974) but I haven’t seen it for awhile. It is British (a Hammer film) and is about vampires that suck out the life force rather than blood.

    Might be the answer. And if its not, you should watch this fine film anyway.

    “Commenter gillis is absolutely correct, the scene Kevin describes is from the opening of “Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter”.

    And check this out, the sene in question is in the trailer!!!….
