Thank god I found your website! I’ve always been one who knows the obscure movies people barely remember but this one stumped me.
My friend told me he has always had this memory of a scene from a movie he saw when he was a kid. It had to be early ’80s, maybe ’70s. He says it was live action, and that it could have been a kid’s movie. The scene he remembers is that these kids are running from something, they go into a house and are hiding under the floor, possibly looking up through a grate. The door opens and a witch with a black veil covering her face enters. A man enters, possibly a father or relative of the kids, and he confronts this witch. The witch pulls out a piece of paper, then whispers something to the man about his heart. She starts to crumple the paper and the man has a heart attack.
Any idea what movie this is?
UNK SEZ: Kevin, both me and Aunt John are convinced that your friend is speaking of SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES (1983)! Although it’s a bit jumbled, the grate, the crumbled paper and the veiled heart-attack inducing witch all fit! We’ve been wrong before so if there are any other ideas out there, please let us know. In the meantime here’s the trailer in hopes it will jar your pal’s memory!
