Name That Trauma :: Reader Stephanie R. on a Turtle Traumatizer


Great website. I had the sudden urge to find a movie I'd seen years ago called the CHILD OF GLASS. The search led me to your site -- and all I can say is HA! Love it!

O.K. so it got me day in about 1979 on a Sunday afternoon, I'm flipping through the channels and I come across the end of a French (I think) movie in which some kind of reptile or alien or large turtle tears it's way out of a woman's back, and then the next scene is of a giant sea turtle swimming out into the blue ocean depths...

The End.

UNK SEZ:: Whenever something crawls out of a woman's back I think of THE MANITOU and whenever I hear of a giant sea turtle, I think of THE BERMUDA DEPTHS. I don't know what to think here, does anybody out there have any ideas?

i'm not sure, because i think of the manitou and the first demons movie when i think of back-erupting violence, and neither involve a sea turtle…but i LOVE the use of the copper-masked killer from truth or dare!

I wonder if it might be a combination of memories. 

Fart_Mike, Yes, Truth or Dare rules and that copper face looks kind of like a turtle to me!
