Dimly remembered creepy movie

I'm trying to remember a movie in which a woman was chained to a wall or ceiling, and an unattractive bald or blond man approached her with a worm-looking growth emerging from his forehead toward her face. What is the movie?

This would have been 1992 or earlier. It was a movie playing on the television screens at a Price Club (definitely pre-Costco), so it can't have been too horrific. The actors were in a very bright, possibly all-white room. The woman had some room to try to get away from the worm-like growth, but I think the chains were relatively long; her hands were chained at shoulder-length or higher. This scene is the only part I remember, however.

Unfortunate caveat: I would have been a very young child here, so it's entirely possible this was a made-up nightmare that has for some reason stuck with me. I totally had nightmares about said movie for years afterward.

Best answer: From Beyond?

I should have warned - the scene I linked to is kind of gross. The girl bites the worm and there's blood.

I don't remember this exact scene, but could it be the same movie that gave me such horrific fucking nightmares as a kid, From Beyond? This was '86.

There were definitely worms sprouting from heads, anyway. You can see the trailer on youtube to see if the wormy heads seem right.

If it isn't From Beyond then I am a horse.

From Beyond is the only movie I know of that involves someone chomping an angry and tentacular pineal gland, so if it's not it, then I'm a horse's pituitary gland.

Response by poster: I think that's it! It's such a relief that it's not just a product of my subconscious!

I'm in after the real answer, but if you want a similar scene from a newer movie, Slither would fit the bill.
