Thanks for naming my most mysterious past traumas! I’ve tossed a couple of tough ones your way and you never fail to name them. Before I get started on my newest one, did anyone ever manage to find the scary cymbals-monkey PSA? I’ve been looking for that thing since I read about it on your blog and thus far have come up dry.
This trauma has to do with a Disney film from the late ’70s, whose title sadly continues to elude me. It wasn’t an animated feature and the trailers featured a little girl with long dark hair and at some point there was a small (possibly man-made) waterfall. I think there may be a well in the film but can’t swear to it because the ad creeped me out so utterly that I never stayed in the room past the first few seconds.
Seems to me the girl’s hair was also in her face alot, kind of like Sadako/Samara in RINGU/THE RING. I think there was also a large flower somewhere in there but can’t swear to it, one of those huge pink things that’s used as a wrist corsage. The part of the trailer I saw had the girl standing in what may have been a garden. I remember telling my mom that Disney was making scary movies, which at the time I was pretty unhappy about. Now just about any horror rocks my stripey socks unless it’s done by UWE BOLL.
Does any of this sound familiar? I’d love to know what this is so I can revisit it.
Thanks in advance,
UPDATE: NAME THAT TRAUMA SOLVED! Special thanks to Pinchy for naming it with CHILD OF GLASS.
