Name That Trauma :: Reader Tara J. on Sinister Stuffed Animals

December 28th, 2008 by aunt john · No Comments

I started reading Kindertrauma a few months ago and I love it. Anyways, I have this horrifying memory of a movie I watched when I was a kid and I cannot figure out what it is. I have tried asking on other message boards, and no one can figure it out. I figured you guys are pretty good at this from what I’ve seen, so I figured I’d give it a try. So this is what I remember:

I think it was about a woman who’s daughter had been killed (possibly by being hit by a car? or maybe the woman had been the one who hit her?) Anyways, this woman kept finding stuffed animals around. She found a stuffed rabbit in her freezer with a knife through it and blood. I also remember her backing up her car and hitting something and she got out and under her tire was a stuffed panda and it was raining out.

Those are mainly what I remember. Some details might have gotten mixed up in my memory, but I remember the stuffed animals really freaked me out.

I saw this in the early ‘90s sometime. I’m 23, so I was probably 7 or so when I saw it (I was born in ’85). I was watching LOVE BOAT and it came on afterwards, so it aired during the day sometime. It could have been a made-for-T.V. movie.

I have tried for years to figure out this movie. It gave me nightmares for years and I’m still a little scared of my grandma’s office. She’s a shrink, and I was watching it in one of the empty offices near hers while waiting for her to finish work. I was so scared I refused to go near that room again and sat outside her door until she was finished that day.

So any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
