Name That Trauma :: Reader T.W. on a Crucified Mom and Her Delusional Daughter

I have a trauma that no one has been able to help me identify.

My sister and I saw it on TV when we were 8-10 years old, so we assume it’s a movie (or made-for-T.V. movie) from 1974-1976’ish.

I scared her with a line from this movie for years…“You killed me, April!”

The movie, if we remember correctly, involved a woman that a group of people are trying to drive insane.

The big scene was time and time again seeing her “dead” mother hanging on a crucifix yelling, “You killed me, April!”

It was very creepy and we’d LOVE to see it again!

Can you help?

UNK SEZ: Whatever this movie is I certainly want to see it! Anybody out there have any ideas? If so, leave your thoughts in the commments section or email us at!
