I get attacked by a boss - part of Goluux, and now a boss in the scrapyard.

A two colo(u)red bar appears above me with a white work glove on each end. The bar is yellow and .. red? black? I can't recall.

It starts with a divider in the middle, which moves towards one end and I die. It is not seduce, I know that much.

What is the effect called - and how can I get out of it?

    If I'm right about what I think you're attempting to describe, mash your left and right arrow keys.

    It's petrification. Mash your left and right arrow keys to make the bar go down. When it hits zero, you escape and can move again. The bar is somewhat unresponsive, so you'll have to mash your keys rapidly while alternating between each key.

    Gollux Head and Abdomen have this skill, as does any elite monster or boss with the "Petrifying" prefix.

    Pretty sure those are arrows.... and you should do what it symbolizes, as in press the arrows repeated....
    The effect is basically the monster/enemy version of a "bind".

    Thanks guys. You have prodded my memory - either there are arrows, or the white, gloved hads on each end are poiting.

    Sounds like you go it. I will post to verify, as soon as I can confirm.
