I have a Name That Trauma from a film I watched a few years ago – or at least a scene from it? On YouTube, I think, but no matter what I search I can’t find anything, the video may have been deleted. My memory is pretty hazy, so it might have been a combination of several different things.
It was probably an older film, ’80s or ’70s. I don’t remember CGI. Basically, a girl or a young woman was running through a gothic building, probably a church but I don’t remember any religious imagery, and one of the stained glass windows comes out of the pane and attacks her(!) It moved really oddly, like it was a sheet, even though it was glass. I think it became a circle and rolled on its side at one point like a wheel, and I remember either it yelling at the girl, or somebody else offscreen yelling at her, very insulting and hostile and not really how you’d expect a strange monster to talk. I think the girl ran out onto the balcony of the building at one point and tried to hide from it. This is such a weird, striking scene I’m surprised I can’t find it anywhere. I really hope I didn’t dream it.
UNK SEZ: Thanks for writing in Zoey G.! When it comes to stained glass monsters, I can only think of one movie and that’s 1985’s YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES. I can’t say that I’ve met every stained glass monster there is to meet though so if any of our fine readers know of any other such creatures that fit the bill, please let us know!
This could very well be Mirror Mirror II:Raven Dance.
Only on this site would someone know a movie called “Mirror Mirror II:Raven Dance” even exists.
It not only EXISTS, it stars the daughter from MR BELVEDERE!
Hi, Zoey G. here- I haven’t seen the Mirror Mirror movie, but I know it’s definitely not “Young Sherlock Holmes”- the things I remember the clearest is that it was a girl, she was in a gothic building, the monster moving like a sheet, and her being yelled at. I suppose the other details could be false memory, though I’m pretty sure the monster was an entire stained glass window, not a piece of it or a mirror.
Ah! You may be on to something there.
Everybody knows KT readers are the smartest. 🙂
The cast of Mr. Belvedere should be in everything.
So it was a square-shaped stained glass window? Hmmm, this is a real puzzler. I actually have the Mirror Mirror box-set so maybe I can find an image from that. There doesn’t seem to be anything on youtube. I’m starting to wonder if it might have been an episode of a TV show…
It could’ve been any shape, actually, I just remember it sort of jumping out of the pane and then moving like a sort of sheet. It might have had a liquid texture and changed shape.
