Name That Trauma:: Reader Luke on Strange Happenings in the Snow

May 9th, 2013 by unkle lancifer · 7 Comments

I have a very vague memory of a movie I saw as a kid. I must have watched it in the ’90s but it could have been a movie from the ’70s to ’90s. I don’t remember which part happened when but I’ll try my best. I didn’t watch the whole movie either, just a few scenes. It was about this woman and her son in a winter setting and it was like no matter where they went, something totally bizarre and scary was happening. They went to a middle school or high school and all the kids looked either possessed or demonic or like ghosts. They wanted to hurt the woman and her son but they ran. Then she is driving and to her right she sees a guy standing in the snow and he suddenly falls through. I think she investigates this and finds a facility underground and there are a bunch of people fighting this machine/alien; not really sure what. Like I said, very bizarre but I would love to find out what it is called and watch it as an adult.

— Luke

I agree with Animanu – I’d say it sounds a bit like a distorted memory of either version of “Invaders from Mars” – the original 1950’s version was, to me, the more traumatic of the two. Either way, the Martians reprogram people into a sort of alien communist conspiracy with the result that people act strangely, and operate from a flying saucer hidden underground beneath some white sand that people fall through or get pulled down into by the Martians. For some reason, the scenes of people falling disappearing through the sand always creeped me out, they really seemed to leave an impression 🙂

It reminds me a bit of Invaders from Mars, the Tobe Hooper Remake…

Oops – NTD = NTT.

Yeah Unk, not so sure about “The Brood” Dolls. I think that your standard apple-head dolls fit the bill anyway. I’m surprised that no one has ever done a Traumafession about them. Creepy.

I seem to have some fuzzy recollection of Luke’s NTD, but I have come up with zilch. For some reason it reminds me of “Dreamcatcher” but that can’t be it for multiple reasons.

I don’t know what this could be either. I do LOVE the “Brood” screen shots though.
