We love the Kindertrauma blog. And are also quite disturbed by it. Kindertrauma delves into the recesses of your memory and reminsces about the things that terrified you as a child. Movies, TV, books, toys ... all the tiny terrors that you can't possibly understand at a young age.
When I was nine, we moved and I met the girl who lived down the street from us, and one day she and her family (older sister? I couldn't have been her mom...) took us to see 'The Deep" with Jacqueline Bisset. Which was rated R. Which there was no way my mom would have OK'd, had she known. Which includes a scene where creepy voodoo bad guys break into Bisset's hotel room and draw on her stomach with a CHICKEN FOOT DIPPED IN BLOOD.
Did I understand the rest of the plot? God, no. I don't even understand it reading the Wikipedia page I linked above. A sunken ship carrying morphine ampules? Wha? But I'll never forget that damn bloody chicken foot, which wasn't even considered important enough to mention by whoever wrote the Wikipedia entry.
Kindertrauma also has a "Name That Trauma!" regular feature for those traumas you don't remember the names of. Brilliant.
In the spirit of Kindertrauma, share your horrifying, childhood-destroying pop-culture memories. Come on, you're among friends.
By the way, the actress whose eye apparently gets split in this Kindertrauma entry (it was a dead cow's eye) later immolated herself in public. Shudder. And now we pay thousands of dollars to have our eyes split for laser surgery.
