Name That Trauma :: Reader Maritsa on a Boarding House Franken-Mom

November 9th, 2008 by aunt john · 2 Comments

I have a question maybe someone can help me with. In the early eighties I remember watching a slasher film where a man lived in a boarding house with his domineering mother. She would tell him that he needed to find himself a girl just like mother. He was killing the girls that would move into the boarding house. Using their body parts, he created a woman that looked like his mom. Then he locked his mother up with the body and told her to teach it to love him just like she did. Does it ring a bell? I can’t seem to remember the title of the movie.

    Reader Laurel emailed this tip:

    The reader may be talking about the AIP version of The House That Screamed.  It took place in a girls’ school, not a boarding house.

    That sounds right. When will this film get a DVD release?
