I saw a movie about 20 years ago that scared me. I don't remember the
name. I want to see if I will still be scared 20 years later.

It is a scary movie I saw on TV. All I remember was one of the
characters is having a baby on the back on his (her?) neck. There was
a scene on a tram. There was another scene in a study room. The end of
the movie was in a hospital where it was snowing inside the hospital.

Ick! It's "The Manitou", starring Tony Curtis, a 1978 howler from Avco
Embassy about a reincarnated Native American spirit. Here's a review
with sound clips and movie stills.

The Manitou

It was directed by William Girdler
(, who also gave us such
screen gems as "Grizzly" and "Asylum of Satan" ("Love Slaves of Satan
Tortured to Blood-Dripping Death").

Better pay attention to those moles, people! See what happens when you
stay out in the sun too long?

Oh, ew.  Still, I'm completely astounded by huntsman's ability to pull
this one seemingly out of nowhere.  I didn't even have an idea of
where to begin looking.

Thank you very much. I will go rent it and see if that is the movie.
and see if I will still be scared. I doubt it. I did not know it is a
bad movie. I saw it on TV when I was 4 or 5. At that age, I would not
be able to tell a good movie from a bad movie.... well .....
