The Witch of My Childhood

From closet monsters, to floating garden tools, to little deformed children in the chimney… House of 1986 is one hell of a ride but for me, it was much more nostalgic then that. See, back in 2000 and 2001, I used to watch this movie over and over because it scared me and because I got to hear “You’re No Good” by Linda Ronstadt. In fact, I even have a video of myself making a skeleton puppet dance to the end credits of this movie where the song was heard; that’s how obsessed I was with this.

Although, the one scene in this whole movie that freaked me out beyond anything else was the scene when William Katt’s character encounters that purple, Grey, wrinkly looking witch. How she just jumped out from under the table seriously frightened me. Just look at her:

The bitch freaked me out to no end and how she sounded like a girl on helium just added to her freakiness. Although I could not find the scenes that showed her on YouTube, I will show you the two separate parts where the witch is shown. Also note the use of “You’re No Good.”

The scene starts 4:00 minutes in.

The scene ends at 4:00 minutes in.

Dude it's really weird but pretty much everything you just described about this movie applies to me as well.

I was born in 1985 and that witch haunted my nightmares when I was a kid. I have this movie on dvd now and I give it a watch at least once or twice a year because it gives me a unique kind of nostalgia I don't get anywhere else. It really holds a special place in my memories.

Anyway it's nice to see someone else feels the same way about it, I just kinda stumbled upon your blog and felt compelled to post something.
