Name That Trauma:: Reader Tomb on a Delusional Dad & a Sacrificial Son

November 7th, 2013 by unkle lancifer · 6 Comments

I remember a show on TV: Possibly mid-70’s? Made for TV? CBS?

Anyway, the only scene I remember was a father, under the delusion that God told him to sacrifice his son old-book style. The father held the wriggling tyke shouting verse, he might have had a knife or scissors and a frantic wife was trying to stop him. I was pretty young trying to process the whole drama; why would a Daddy try to kill his son? Years later I would do things that would bring me to near death by my father, but it had nothing to do with divine machinations!

Thanks

OOPs I should have written NOT THE OMEN!!

This was more a melodramatic film than a horror; still that scene was pretty intense!

Could it have been Frailty? It’s been a long time since I’ve seen it,but it sounds likely.

I know it doesn’t fit the era given,but everything else sounds right.

Not Frailty. This was a made-for-TV movie. This was made when mental issues were still kind of hush-hush. More like, “The Death Of Ritchie”, meets “Sybil”.

I wish there was a database strictly for mftv movies!
