The Electric Grandmother (1982)

Who remembers this trippy early 1980s made-for-TV gem? It scared the shit out of me as a kid.

Rewatching now ... what memories.

A remake of a Twilight Zone episode written by Ray Bradbury. Josephine Hutchinson played the grandmother, and one of the kids was Veronica Cartwright.

I realize now why I thought it was scary. I thought that the electric grandmother was a nefarious presence and only the daughter knew it. I remember turning it off after the scene where the girl "unplugs" the grandmother because I thought it would only get scarier.

Yes MARY!!!!!

I randomly remembered this movie a week ago. All I could retell was the Grandma getting hit by a car and the little girl crying and then Grandma gets up and says "No, not like mommy." I didn't know where to begin searching for it. That was one of those weird movie memories you have as a child.

Yeah, r3, this movie definitely stayed with me. Well, certain moments. I remembered, for example, the father brushing the soot off the building number, and also how the grandmother's voice is a conglomeration of the father and kids.

But I completely forgot other parts, like the milk being poured out of her finger and the grandmother being airlifted in (which both seem ... memorable.)

Memory is a funny thing.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
