Grandma sequestering her daughter in a closet!


This website is exactly what I needed. When I was a kid, I saw an horror movie that traumatised me on TV (my parents should have been more careful). While I remember very few from the main content (I think I recall a mummy running around but I’m not so sure…), I will never forget the ending.

I believe to recall that at the end, it turns out the whole movie was a story told by a grandma to her granddaughter, to make her sleep (weird to tuck a kid in bed by telling a horror story but there’s weirder). Then the little girl says something like, “I miss mom”, so at that point, I understood her mother must have died and now she’s being taken care of by her grandmother.

But then, when the grandma leaves the bedroom, she goes to another place of the house (a sort of closet or very small basement), and she throws food to what appears to actually be the mother of the child (and thus the daughter of the grandma)!! I think she was chained, living AND acting like a dog. She didn’t say a word of the whole sequence and just rushed on the food on all four limbs eating like an animal, while her mother was looking down on her and made a disgusting comment. The movie then ended with a camera shot of the face of the shackled woman watching in fear her mother close the door, like a dog afraid of its abusive master.

Now I believe I must have been between 6 and 10 years old when I watched this, so we can situate the airing time between 2000 and 2005. It was in french (because I am french), but it may have been dubbed.

This scene had a strong impact on me. I remember I imagined many times my lovely grandma doing the same thing to my mom, locking her away in our own house, unbeknownst to everyone, and feeding her like an animal, with the mind of my mother reduced to that of a tamed dog. It would be amazing if I could see again this scene, arguably the most disturbing I have ever seen in my life.
