Name That Trauma:: Scott P. on Multiple Monsters in an Old House

January 29th, 2018 by unkle lancifer · 9 Comments

Scott P: Not my trauma, but one of my favorite musicians ( Ginger Wildheart ) was asking about this on Twitter, & I suggested he come here to see if any of the experts can crack it. In case he didn’t see that Tweet, I thought I’d send the details he mentioned :

Trying to remember a movie where there are monsters inside of an old house. Some are tall, some are hunched deformed things. It was made in the last decade. The action kicks off in the kitchen, and culminates in a tall creature chasing a woman down the hall, while a hunched over goblin thing sits in the corner.

It was not a found footage film. I think the premise of this horror movie was a house built on top of Hell, or something.

These monsters all looked different from each other. Different shapes, sizes and looks. Some of these monsters weren’t remotely human shaped.

It was a small budget movie, not much promotion. I think it was American, but had more of a European horror than a 50’s B-movie feel. It was an indie flick, similar vibe to Digging The Marrow, looked fairly expensive too.

Any chance we can figure this out for him? Thanks!

    I seriously doubt that this is right because of A.) the time period, and B.) it seems too obvious, but the description is reminiscent of “The Gate.”

    I know this isn’t the right time period, but it totally reminds me of The Sentinel.

    There’s a 2008 movie called The Gates of Hell, but it seems to be partially found footage style.

    I was thinking GRAVE ENCOUNTERS (2011) but I guess that one is found footage too.

    We also have somebody looking for an albino crocodile movie if that sounds familiar to anyone….

    “I was wondering if you could help me find a film. All i remeber was there was a giant killer albino alligator/croc in the amazon cant find it anywhere online.

    Unk, The movie Creature (2011) has a part about an albino alligator, but it’s set in Louisiana.

    This place has a pretty good list of a bunch of creature features:

    So sounds like the Sentinel, but how could you mistake that movie as modern? Also all the monsters in that are basically human, right? I haven’t seen it in years.

    Thanks for taking a crack at this, guys. On Twitter, there were a gazillion guesses, & the answer still eludes us. It’s crazy that no one’s figured it out yet, but that’s the case.

    It may be A Dark Song (2016), the action starts in the kitchen, it involves a house used to commune with dark forces and culminates with demons of different shapes and sizes chasing a woman down a hallway.
