I remember my sister renting a movie when I was about 9 years old (1992) and it was about a young woman (20-ish) who has nightmares about her dead father being under her bed. At one point she is telling her boyfriend about it, and I think she says “I told him to go to hell, and he did.” They look under the bed and a snarling head appears, with glowing red eyes. Do you have any idea what that might have been?
UNK SEZ: If I’m right about this one it’s a very strange, weird, uncanny occurrence. As you might be able to tell, I watch a lot of movies and I have been doing so for decades. I even worked in a video store for 20 years, all the while picking up & watching every stray VHS horror title I could get my grubby hands on. I tell you that because I thought it slightly odd that I had never come across GRAVE SECRETS aka SILENT SECRETS (1989) until the other night when I noticed it was expiring from Netflix Streaming. GRAVE SECRETS closes with a couple in bed and the then the woman looks under the bed to see her glowing eyed father growling back at her!!! I don’t remember her making the “hell” comment but that certainly fits within the story! If GRAVE is the correct movie, how bonkers is it that I watched it the night before you sent in your Name That Trauma??? Kinder-synchronicity!!! On the hand, I might be totally wrong.
If anybody has any other ideas please send them in!
The more I think about it the more I think I’m wrong- I probably just have GRAVE SECRETS on the brain having just watched it!
Being wrong would be very difficult for me if I didn’t have so much practice at it!
If anyone has a “Name That Trauma” about a floating stuffed kuala bear in an attic though- the answer to that one is definitely GRAVE SECRETS!!!
god that looks hilarious! sorry i missed it – along with the other thousand movies that went away today (wah!!!).
and that medium guy even says “eeeeviiiil!”
