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:
The film was in color
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.
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?
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.
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.
