Traumafession:: Amanda M. on Incident at Dark River (1989)

May 1st, 2018 by unkle lancifer · No Comments

I caught part of a movie on TV when I was a teenager. There was a little girl with a doll playing in a river. Soon, she becomes deathly ill and has to go to the hospital. Some time later they let her out, only she’s pretty much in a catatonic state, and only days later she dies. Her mother finds her body in her bed and begins screaming and crying. It was at this point I changed the channel, greatly disturbed by what I’d just seen. I never forgot it, though I didn’t know what the movie was. I tried to find it today, and although I discovered what it was, I couldn’t find it to watch online. It’s called Incident at Dark River: A Father’s Revenge (1989). I tried to find it on youtube, but all I could find was the trailer. There’s another movie called A Father’s Revenge, from 1988, but it’s not the same movie.

Here’s the trailer for Incident at Dark River:

Name That Trauma:: Chris D. on a Firing Squad Execution

April 30th, 2018 by unkle lancifer · 1 Comment

Greetings Kindertrauma:

Was wondering if you could help, or if anyone out there might be able to shed some light on a snippet of a film that I saw on Channel 13 (Tri-State Area, some sort of TV special I think – not positive) ? Here’s my only recollection particulars:

There was this TV special on channel 13, with a guy who looked like Peter Frampton/Roger Daltrey – type who got executed at the end of the movie, on like this white and black checkered firing squad patio. It was some British type show. Any info or thoughts would be awesome….????

Thanks/Cheerio-

Chris D.

Name That Trauma:: Brian N. on an Upsetting Table Setting

Howdy Kindertrauma!

I’ve solved all of my childhood mystery movie memories — save one — and it’s perplexed me for years! Here is what I can recall:

The scene takes place in a bar/restaurant. Some people are sitting around a table, and there may be some sort of aquariums (?) in the background. A man or men walk up to their table and it’s a little tense. What really scared me, though, is what was on the table. There was some sort of centerpiece that frightened my young eyes. I’m not sure it was meant to be scary, but it was to me and has remained the centerpiece of this movie mystery memory for over 45 years. I’m not sure if it was a movie or TV show, but I know I saw it on TV, not in a theater.

I would’ve see this sometime between 1969 and 1971, when I was 4-6 years old. Thank you for any help you can give me! It’s been a looong, frustrating trip trying to solve this one.

Brian

P.S. There is an early 70’s anthology that has vampires in a restaurant, but that’s not it.

Name That Trauma:: Amanda M. on a Sterile, White Prison Cafeteria

March 27th, 2018 by unkle lancifer · 3 Comments

One of my early traumas comes from a snippet of a movie I don’t know the name of. My cousin was watching this movie one day and I walked in and caught a scene that’s stayed with me ever since (I was in my single digits I think). There was a man surrounded by a lot of tubes or pipes or something. He screamed, then the movie cut to a scene in a sterile white prison cafeteria. All of a sudden a bunch of blood and guts comes falling through the ceiling. That’s when I noped out of the room, so I never caught what the movie was. Can you help me? I’d really appreciate it.
