Name That Trauma :: Reader Tristan R. on an Architect, a Bathing Beauty & a Demonic Car Crash

December 14th, 2010 by aunt john · 6 Comments

First Up! Keep up the great work, Kindertrauma is a wonderful and insightful website!

I am trying to track down a movie that has played on my mind for the last 18 years. I was about 12 when I watched this movie on T.V., the same night I saw what I thought was a ghost in the hallway and had an asthma attack. I’ve been trying to piece together that particular night for years!

I am sure the plot involved an architect and maybe flashbacks to a site in Egypt. Two scenes I vaguely remember were the lead actor sitting beside a possible redhead while she was in the bathtub and some kind of demon appearing in a car windscreen or looking down from the roof a car and causing a car crash.

The film has haunted me for years, I have never been able to locate it – even after endless plot searches on IMDb! I thought it could possibly be SCHIZO/PLAYROOM but am not sure.

Can anyone help end my trauma????

    The elements you describe, the car crash, demon, architect, flashbacks, *could* all be from The Kiss (1988), which I very vaguely remember from my VHS days. Have a Google of it and see if it rings any bells.

    The site in Egypt makes me think of “Manhattan Baby”…

    ??? maybe ???

    And the demon causing a car crash makes me think of 1972’s “Gargoyles” made-for-TV movie.

    I have no idea, but I do have a couple of new movies on my tosee list. (Already seen Gargoyles….)

    Manhattan Baby was my first guess…

    Thanks for the feedback! It’s definately not Manhattan Baby but i’ll check out The Kiss. has anyone seen PlayRoom just out of curiosity??
