POV shot

I posted this on the TOMT reddit sub, but no luck. I was googling around an found this site so fingers crossed someone here can help me.

I’ve been thinking about this for about 20 years.

Some time in the late 90’s (I believe it was about 98 or 99 – the very latest it would be is 2002) I was flipping through channels late at night while I was babysitting. I stopped at a scene from what I figured was a movie but could have been a show. It was a pov shot going up stairs, down a hallway, and into a bedroom where a woman was in bed. I believe she was sleeping, though she might have been reading or something. She sees whatever is standing/floating over her and screams. Then one of the kids I was babysitting woke up and came to the living room and I quickly changed the channel. I didn’t know what channel it had been on so I couldn’t find it when I tried to go back.

Here are the little details I remember:

  1. The film was in color

  2. I *think* it was set in another time period just by the way the house looked – maybe early 20th century? I could be wrong about that though.

  3. It was a pretty grand house from what I remember – more likely a mansion or something. I think there was red carpet on the steps. Maybe it was even a nice hotel?

  4. I always got the feeling it was the pov of a ghost, but it very likely could have been a person. I feel like once it got to the woman in bed it the shot was kind of floating over her and I think that’s what gave me the ghost vibe.

  5. All I heard was the scream so I can’t say for sure it was English language, but it likely was because it would have been on US cable.

Please Help Me Figure This Out And Move On With My Life

Hi everyone! When I was really young I saw parts of this movie (or episode I have no clue) and it scarred me for life and I just need to watch it now that I’m grown up so I can move on. I saw it in the early 2000s:

There is a scientist/ doctor guy and he has this lab and the protagonist is a boy in his late teens I’m pretty sure. The scientist guy invented a machine that when you step on you get turned into a hot women in a school uniform or something like that. And the boy tried to stop the scientist guy from convincing people to step into the machine thingy. I’m pretty sure that the boy’s parents even did it (they didn’t believe him that the doctor guy was evil). There was also a part where the scientist guy brought a girl into his lab and sat her in a chair and put on special glasses and then electricity shot in them and idk if she died or went blind or what but it really traumatized me at the time. Finally, I remember the guy being forced into the machine and he tried to resist but his clothes changed and I don’t really remember what else. This could easily be horror or sci-fi but also even comedy. I was too young to “get it” either way.

I know what I just described sounds crazy and isn’t very specific but it’s all I’ve got. It would be so incredible if someone had any idea what this could be. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!!!
