Name That Trauma:: Reader Pho22 On Burning Ashes In A Pool

February 13th, 2012 by unkle lancifer · 3 Comments

This trauma is not from my childhood, it’s actually from earlier today but I wondered if you guys could help me anyway. I was in a restaurant and there was a black and white movie on the TV with the sound off. In the movie, a man is followed around by a woman and two children who stare at him with automaton blank looks on their faces. Eventually he turns into a smoldering silhouette of ashes at the bottom of an empty pool. The movie ends with several of these ash figures in the pool and then the pool fills with water that washes them away. I don’t know what channel it was on but it’s been bugging me all day. Any ideas?

    From Facebook, Elizabeth Rudolph says it’s “The Day Mars Invaded Earth” (1962) That looks like it must be it!
