Name That Trauma:: Reader Nicole E. on a Demon Charred Chest

I’m a huge (well ok at 60 inches, a short) horrorphile freak and I’ve adored the genre since I was much too young to partake. One of my earliest memories was waking up in the middle of the night and pushing play on the VCR containing a horror movie older relatives had been watching earlier and hadn’t allowed me to view. Back in the day they were not kind and did not rewind so it opened on a scene from the middle of the film. I’ve never found out the title, even after years of devouring guides to horror films and even writing my own (currently with Citadel Press, maybe one day on a bookshelf somewhere!). So I’m turning to my fellow horror fans on one of my favorite websites here.

All I remember is a man in formal wear running from seemingly nothing, from room to room in a large house. Eventually he lies backwards onto a bed, pulling open his shirt and screaming. It looks like his flesh is being burned even though there’s nobody in the room with him. I’m pretty sure it had something to do with demons or the devil. And I seem to remember it looked like his stomach was sort of caving in as it burned? If anyone has any idea what movie that was please let me know!

Meanwhile thanks for all the great entertainment!

Except for the formal wear and the burning, this sounds like a scene from Amityville II: The Possession.

The formal wear and general body distortion reminds me of SOCIETY. I haven’t seen it in so long, so I can’t remember for sure whether there was actually a scene like that.

Love the MY DINNER WITH ANDRE theme, by the way. Very KinderTraumatic!
