Saw this movie in the late 1990s. A young boy lives in a rural area and becomes friends with an oldish man who lives in a house/cabin in the woods. There is a big storm and afterwards the boy goes to the old man’s house to see if he is okay. The house has fallen over and the boy stumbles upon the body of the old man. I remember the first thing you see is his dead hand – very memorable and nightmare inducing for young me.
