    Horror Movie, Late 70's?

    Horror Movie, Late 70's?

    These images have haunted me forever. I have memories of two scenes from a horror movie all-nighter that my parents took me to at the drive-in in the late 70's. I really think the memories were both from the same movie but there might be some fusion going on.

    1. A man scratches a painting. The part that he scratches on the painting is of a young girl. The scene then cuts to a young girl screaming. She looks just like the girl in the painting. I think she is in the same house as the man but it's as though it's a different time period.

    2. Blurry memories. Devils. They have tails because of water and horns because of food. They walk around slowly covered in white sheets. They look at you through small black circles on the wall.

    Not much to go on but these images have been freaking me for many years. I'd really like to see this movie again so please let me know the titles if you have any ideas. Thanks.

    The first one reminds me of Night Child.

    Dude look at the date to these threads you're replying too. They're over a year old.

    It's an old thread but I'm still hoping someone can help me. I swear these images were real and not my imagination

    Was it the original Dont Be Afraid of the Dark from 1973?

    Memories can be kind of screwy, so taking that into account and how much of a mark this movie left on you, i think it could be this movie. I think that movie scared every child who saw it TBH.

    There's is some similiarities here with The Two Worlds of Jenny Logan, but I doubt that's it.

    Sounds like a Shriekback video.

    Thanks Solo, I had a look at "Jenny Logan" but unfortunately that one is a TV movie. Much appreciated though

    Well the first one kind of has me thinking Deep Red which came out in 1975 which is in the time frame you mentioned.




    There is a scene where he scrapes paint from a wall to expose a painting underneath, but the scene isn't shown in the trailer

    Thanks Necromancer, I downloaded and scanned Deep Red and saw the scene you mentioned. Sadly, the hunt is still on I'm afraid.

    who cares when the original post was made? This thread isn't solved, so let the postings and suggestions continue! I agree with whomever said Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, the original...for the 2nd description anyway. The 1st description sounds like an episode of Tales from the Dark Side or Outer Limits or Monsters.
