I need help finding another movie. I have looked on IMDb movie by movie in the horror genre and not found this movie (mainly because I cannot recall a great deal about it). I am pretty sure this movie was made in the early to mid 80's but it is possible it was late 70's.

The movie is either going to be considered a thriller/drama or a horror/drama.

It is centered around a child that died due to medical reasons (I am pretty sure he was in a wheel chair), or his father killed him. He is buried under the floor of this house and his ghost/spirit is attacking another child and haunting them. Through parts of the movie you hear the spirit of the dead child asking for his medal which has been given to the child he is going after. After some investigation they find the remains of the dead child.

This is about all I can recall and even some of that might be sketchy. The “my medal” part though that the child spirit is calling for is something I am 100 percent sure on though.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Raist

Could be The Changeling, (the 1980 movie, not recent Angelina Jolie movie) Although It's years since I've seen it.

en.wikipedia.org...


A couple of quotes from the wiki page



Hunter discovered a child's trunk that contained the diary of a 9-year-old boy whose family had hidden him in the attic because they were ashamed that he had been born a cripple. The journal mentioned that the boy's favorite toy was a red rubber ball.




After a couple of warning incidents affecting their children, the owners of the house gave permission for the excavation under the bedroom floor, and the gold medal was found.

Yeah I think you might be right.

I have been looking and looking and found a trailer for it.



I have been looking for it all over, figures now that I post a thread about it I find what you did.


After seeing this trailer I am pretty sure this is it. I have not seen it since I was a child though and could vaguely recall what I did. I could not have been more than 8-10 when I saw it. The childs voice calling for his medal stuck in my head but the rest seems to have been overwritten.

Thanks for your help.

I just want to say thanks again.

I have gotten help with a few other movies on here before and the community here is very fast when it comes to finding a movie from very vague details.

You're welcome.... that's the movie I thought of and after looking, seemed like it could definitely be it.

Glad to have helped.

I remember it scared the crap outta me as a kid

Yeah I remember a part of the child with the cries of "my medal" and it stuck with me. lol


Certainly a bit creepy, I cannot wait to watch it again though.
