My dad told me about a monster movie that he watched when he was young (1980s).

He said the movie had this monster where it comes from the toilet. It's like this this hand comes out of the toilet and pulls you inside it.

The language was English and the movie was aired on TV.

    This question is a bit terse and there are several movies that fit the description, for example Ghoulies II, Monsturd or Bloodbath at the House of Death. This question would be greatly improved by going through the checklists here; How to ask a good story-ID question? – Valorum Aug 30 '18 at 19:18

    Yuk! Well, you've already been directed to the guidelines for ID question but it doesn't hurt to point to it again! Does your dad remember when he saw that? Did he watch it in a theater, or on TV - if so would he happen to remember which channel it would likely have aired on? – Jenayah Aug 30 '18 at 19:18
  • No. I think he watched it when he was small and he watched it on TV and doesn't seem like he remembers the channel and stuff. – RAWOKATO Aug 30 '18 at 19:20

    Well, "small" is a bit vague I'm afraid :) not asking for his birthday of course, but when was he a kid? 60s? 80s? – Jenayah Aug 30 '18 at 19:21
  • 80s. Sorry for the vague answer though – RAWOKATO Aug 30 '18 at 19:22

Monsters coming out of toilets was a featured element of the Ghoulies franchise. (The movies were obviously trying to cash in on the success of Gremlins, but they were fairly successful in their own right.) A hand coming out of a toilet and grabbing a guy features prominently in Ghoulies II (1988).


Could it be the X-Files episode The Host? There was a lot of attacking going on from toilets and outhouses and such. I recall it being pretty disturbing in more than just a scatological sense ;-)

  • No it seems. Any other thing which mainly focuses like a "hand from a toilet"? – RAWOKATO Aug 30 '18 at 19:56
  • it was back in 80s. – RAWOKATO Sep 1 '18 at 12:55

I think it was the horror movie House. I saw that scene at a friends house when I was walking through the room and it scared me of using the bathroom at night.

    Hi, welcome to SF&F. That's a 3-hour-long video; your answer would be much better if you gave a time-code for the scene in question or, better yet, updated the embed URL to the correct time. – DavidW Feb 25 '20 at 22:34
