Name That Trauma :: Reader Kirsty D. on a Possessed Person With Lumpy Looking Skin

February 21st, 2010 by aunt john · 9 Comments

I posted a post yesterday on the IMDb I Need To Know board, asking if anybody knew what the name of this movie was, but nobody answered. All I remember is a dark haired young man getting possessed or turning evil, and getting lumpy looking skin. There’s a scene where he goes under the kitchen sink and while he’s under there he sees a hand hanging from the top.

In one scene he’s chasing some older woman in the house, I think in the basement, and she tries to run away from him from on one side but then runs into him on the other. It was like a scene in EVIL DEAD 2 when Ash was possessed. AMITYVILLE 2 came on T.V. a couple years back, and I thought for sure that it was the movie, but these scenes weren’t in it. I saw it when I was about 3 or 4, it’s a distant memory and those are the only scenes I remember.

Just wanted to see if anybody out there can name this movie, I know it’s really vague.

Thanks in advance.

UPDATE: NAME THAT TRAUMA SOLVED! After further investigation, it was AMITYVILLE 2.

    I’m wondering if it might be Fear No Evil (1981), the possessed guy looks sort of similar to the guy in Amityville 2…

    That’s a great guess, but the kitchen sink thing is throwing me off.  I don’t think that was in Fear No Evil, but I love the clip you posted. lol

    Was it “The Beast Within?”
    That dude got seriously lumpy and gross at the end. And he chased and “did in”  at least  half a dozen folk of an advanced age.

    That’s a great guess Theverysmallarray, Does this look familiar Kristy? (I’m going to havr to dig up my copy of TBW and see if I can find that sink…)

    I watched The Beast Within when I was a young I think.  Last year it was on the IFC channel,  and I was at my mom’s, and remembered her asking if I remembered some movie where some guy shed his skin and turned into a cicada.
    It came out when I was a year old, so the part with the hand in the sink I could have made up in my head somehow or I was mixing it with something else.  Like I  watched Atimyville 3D not too long ago on tv, because I remembered the scene where they expose the old couple as frauds and thought that there was a scene where the old woman was in a rocking chair and spits in the other woman’s face, but that wasn’t in there.

    Kirsty, I recently watched Amityville 3-D and there definitely was a scene where the old woman spit in the lady’s face. Maybe it’s cut out in some versions?

    Thanks!  Guess what?  Since I missed the part with the woman spitting in the other woman’s face when I saw Atymiville 3D on tv, I decided to go see if those scenes I was talking about were in Atimyville 2.  There was a scene where the guy who gets possessed was down in the basement walking in some passageway in the wall, where he looks over and sees an arm sticking out.   I probably remembered it as a sink because of the leaking water.  So it was Atimyville 2!
