Name that short horror film- dresser monster
February 9, 2020 12:13 PM   Subscribe

One of our neighbors had a short horror film on super 8 that he used to pull out for his kids’ sleepovers. Help me figure out if my memories are accurate.

The plot, as I remember it, was that a mirrored dresser came to life in a child’s bedroom, shattering and transforming into a monster that conveniently disappears when the parents check back in. No gore, as this would have been considered “kid appropriate” in the late 70s / early 80s.

Help me contextualize this early childhood trauma-on-a-reel.

(It’s so weird... I literally just thought of it for the first time in, like, TWENTY YEARS yesterday morning. We are CONNECTED)
