Name That Trauma :: Reader Tyler J. on a Sinister Sister Singe

March 29th, 2011 by aunt john · 13 Comments


I have a problem I’m hoping you might be able to solve. I’ve been having flash backs of a movie or T.V. show I saw as a child. It involved two young sisters, one of course was evil and hated the other one. In an attempt to murder her sister by lighting her on fire, the evil sister hides a birthday candle behind her back, the eventual accident ensues and she lights her own hair on fire, severely burning herself in the process. I wish to find this movie and re-watch it, please tell me you’ve seen this or know what I’m looking for.

    Hmmm, I’m trying to dig around a little on this one, but the search results are currently swamped with reports about some nude model at a P Diddy party whose hair burst into flame.

    Ha. That’s all I could find too, that, or Michael Jackson. I really want to know the answer to this one! Evil twins are the best plus it sounds a bit like “Don’t Go to Sleep” which I love!

    Senski would probably know. Which brings up the question, where’s the Senskinator been? It’s like he fell off the Earth.

    Oh that Senski! I fear we’ve lost him to twitter! I’m going to try and fetch him!

    OK, I just sent out the Senski Signal! Maybe he’ll drop by!

    I’m here, I’m here! I saw this one earlier today, and it didn’t come to me, and about 15 minutes of websearching didn’t produce anything either, but I’ll take another crack at it tonight! Yes, you’ve temporarily lost me to Twitter as I’m fighting the fight for Truth, Justice and the American Way in Wisconsin, but I haven’t forgotten you guys, and I’m glad to see you haven’t forgotten me!

    I was afraid the Senski Signal was on the fritz again. For a while there, every time you turned it on, Sister Marie, you know, the one with the plate in her head, would go wildly flailing about the room.

    We could never forget you Senski, you are the Name that Trauma slayer and to each generation only one is born!


    I just had the Senski signal repaired and although it still causes Sister Marie excruciating pain we have found that binding her to a chair prevents her from damaging the valuables.

    Oh, so that’s how it got fixed! It makes me a little sad since we’d occasionally turn it on when she was gardening just to give the neighborhood kids some cheap entertainment.

    Brownie points for the stills from Barton Fink.

    I keep coming across a story about how Justin Bieber accidentally caught his mom’s hair on fire. Love it.
