Name That Trauma:: Warren F. on a Burnt Faced Boy

April 16th, 2016 by unkle lancifer · 2 Comments


I’ve written to you before and you added my little archetypal childhood fear on your website. It was titled “confessions by Warren F.“, in it I related the story about a large muppet on “The Ed Sullivan Show” where Jim Henson had a “Gluttonous” huge puppet that ate “it’s own” smaller version of itself… you put this on your website and I thought that was really cool.

I have another memory of a movie where there is a boy who half of his face is “burned” or “mutilated” somehow. His eye on the messed up side is totally white. He is being followed or is leading a man into an area, and it starts to rain. When the rains begin the nearby “Black Boulders” start to absorb the water and to grow into huge columns that start to collapse and the man and the boy have to find safety…. I just wonder if anyone out there can help me with this obviously twisted but true memory?

Note: Today’s bumper images come courtesy of PAUL VERHOEVEN’s 1985 epic FLESH + BLOOD which stars BLADE RUNNER’s RUTGER HAUER and BRION JAMES, the always incredible JENNIFER JAON LEIGH and legendary Kindertrauma role model SUSAN TYRRELL! Check it out if you have not already because obviously it is awesome.

    I don’t remember a burnt boy but there where people drying up and turning to stone as well as growing rocks in THE MONOLITH MONSTERS (1957).

    crabbymoon, you were right on the money! I just got this message from Warren F. –

    “I recently emailed you about a movie with growing rocks ( when exposed to water)… well.. the movie in question is “Monolith Monsters” 1957… unfortunantely there is no “Burnt Faced Mutant Boy” in the movie…. must have synthezised that in my gelatinous human brain jelly memory with another movie… (or who knows… I may be the product of satanic MK ULTRA mind control… (lol)”
