What Was That Weird Movie?

UPDATE 11/5/2013: I Remember This Movie, an entire website dedicated to solving mystery movies, is now open! You may continue to post your questions here for the time being, but we prefer you use e I Remember This Movie and plan to move all our movie-answering operations there by 2015.

This page has become very popular, which is gratifying. Unfortunately, it has also become a pain to maintain, which is not. As a solution we have created an entire new site organized around the concept.

I hope I Remember This Movie will prove easier to use: your mystery movie will now have its own post to which people can respond if they have a solution. I think this will be much better organized and easier to follow. We also keep a leaderboard showing how many movies each user has solved, and hope to add prizes at some point in the future.

I will keep this page up for the time being while we work out the kinks, but I encourage you to try out I Remember This Movie instead.

Now back to our regular movie guessing exercise.

 

We received enough requests to help people remember the names of movies based on brief memories that we decided to start a page dedicated to the concept. Here is the page feed: it may be a good idea to grab it if you ask a question so you can check for updates.

As a heads up, I find that the badmovies.org “What Was That Film” board can be the best place to ask these sorts of questions, particularly if the film your looking for is in the horror or science fiction genres.  It may be a good idea to ask there as well.

Some idea of when the movie might have been made is helpful. If you saw it in 2005 then say so so we won’t suggest movies made later. Remember, something like “I saw it when I was six” isn’t that helpful because we don’t know if you’re 16 now or 60!

In August 2012, we cleared out the “solved” movies to save space on the page (thus explaining the gaps in the numbering) and also took away the first 50 unsolved movies (thinking that if no one’s found your movie by this point, it’s not going to happen, and you’re probably not checking anymore). If we removed your unsolved movie please feel free to ask it again (and I’ve archived the unsolved movies on my personal hard drive).

From kostas. He says it’s not Novo (2002). Natasha suggests there is a movie with a similar premise called 00:01 (or 12:01), but if this is it the porno part seems unlikely.

MOVIE 51

Someone has the same day again and again (AND NO ITS NOT Groundhog Day!) The film ends on a park and was a kind of soft…porno!

A mystery from blue. It’s a short from the 1960s or earlier and I think it’s going to pose quite a challenge.

MOVIE 52

Hi, I’ve wondered for years what the heck it was that I saw-any suggestions appreciated!
It was back in the mid to late 1960′s, when I was between 7 & 10 years old. I think it may have been part of a short film festival that was a special event at the Pacific National Exhibition (a local summer fair) that my Grandmother always took me to. I’m sure it wasn’t a full length movie. It was a dark, grim story which I believe may have been about a little girl wearing old-fashioned clothes and a doll. I think it was in black and white and possibly silent as well. (?) The scene I remember the most is the doll being lost or abandoned at the bottom of a cliff at the edge of the sea. I think it may have been thrown over the cliff by the girl, landing on the beach. I seem to have a memory of it falling through the air as well as it being on the beach. The scene was filmed looking down from the top of the cliff where there was an ornate iron railing right along the edge. I know it isn’t a lot to go on, but the image of the dark sheer cliffs and the small white doll on the black beach has stayed with me for most of my life. It would be great to solve the mystery…

Another mystery from Gary. Shoot… I thought I had this one for a moment but then I realized the date is way off. Ping! stars “Incredible Hulk” Lou Ferrigno as a dogcatcher—but it wasn’t made until 2000. Can anyone think of a similar movie from the 70s era? Addendum: Movie 109 below may be the same film.

MOVIE 53

This was probably in the 70′s, too. It’s about a boy and his dog. The dog gets picked up by a cruel and very muscle-bound dog catcher. The kid spends the movie trying to get his dog back (which he does and the bad guy gets his in the end). I don’t remember much else but that the dog catcher was huge like a body builder. I showed this as an ARMY projectionist decades ago. Anyone remember this movie?

Kayra needs help finding a silent film with a bald winged man. It could be The Bat (1926) or The Bat Whispers (1930) but I don’t remember any tinting in those. ppok suggests “Harpya, ” which is a good guess—it’s not an early silent movie but it’s done in a similar style.

MOVIE 55

I remember seeing a film, an early silent chaplin-esque one, with a bald winged man/creature in it. the chaplinish guy was trying to run away from it, then the mist on floor would become red and we’d see him losing his arm. later, his whole lower body. does anyone remember something like that?

“Pamela” has a toughie but she does have a link to help out:

MOVIE 56

Can anyone provide info on the film used in this music video for the band This Heat (“Not Waving”): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ5LgJPNMzY
A title card appears near the beginning that says “The Island of the Dead,” but I can’t find anything about this film online. It’s quite surreal and is made to look like it was made in the silent film era, but I suspect it was made more recently, perhaps as an experimental or student film.

Another toughie from Lyss D. A. Coleman suggests that this ” sounds like an adaption of Ray Bradbury’s short story ‘There Will Come Soft Rains,’ maybe from the television show ‘The Ray Bradbury Theater’?” The only problem with the RBT suggestion is Lyss thinks it wasn’t in English, but the source material could be correct. There was a Soviet adaptation of “There Will Come Soft Rains” in 1984, but it was animated, and Lyss didn’t mention animation; it’s still a possibility. Matt also believes it’s the Soviet “There Will Come Soft Rains” and provides a link to a clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LNHYz89sNc.

MOVIE 57

I saw this short film, maybe about a year ago. I have no idea how old it is, when it came out, or what language it was in, but it definitely wasn’t English. I really have no idea. It was very dark. It’s a science fiction. It takes place in a future, dystopian scenario. These machines are basically running peoples lives for them. They wake them up, they wash them, they dress them, they feed them, they do everything possible for them. Except, the people are dead, and they must’ve been for a long time, because all the beds and chairs are filled with ash, ash shaped like people. They were all long dead, but the machines keep running. It was so disturbing, I loved it so much, but I can’t find it for the life of me!

Gee says Teresa’s movie is the British miniseries Gormenghast.

MOVIE 58

I am looking for a movie that aired on tv, it is English and really colorful. It might be fantasy and I remember that the title is the same as the main character. I just remember this scene where there were two old women who the main character somehow killed and they were up in a tower sitting in chairs already dead for days. I think he was trying to kill the entire royal family or something.

From Matt A. My long shot suggestion is Pit and the Pendulum (1991). A better suggestion is “Sword and the Sorcerer (1982, stars L. Horsely, S. MacCorkindale, R. Lynch, R. Moll).  Yes, the new recruits get caught sneaking in; yes they’re in prison–helplessly watching Eliz. have tongue torn out (she kills herself rather than provide leverage).  One of my fave “sword and sorcerer” flicks___Shannon”

MOVIE 59

I have a movie I saw on tv in the late 80′s/ early 90′s. I’ve been trying to find for years. It was a Fantasy-esque film (swords and all that). The once scene I remeber is this band is goinh to try and snek into the villans stronghold. The next scene we cut to is a jail cell where we see many of them imprisoned. Someone drags in a woman and a man from the band who have both had their tounges cut out for not telling who sent them. The executioner type tells the guy in the cell that if he doesn’t tell him who sent them he’s going to flay the woman alive. The prisoner says nothing and the camera focuses on his face as the executioner kilsl the woman. The man who had his tounge cut out tries to fight back but gets killed by the executioner type. This is the only part of the movie I can remember…

From lilbrowncat. Can someone help with a B&W 1960s American movie about a disease that wipes out the population? A. Coleman suggests The Last Man on Earth.

MOVIE 60

60′s American black and white film about a disease in the wind that wipes out large chunk of the population. Vague memory of our hero witnessing his wife wake up as a zombie…..please help!

Kirshark is looking for a pre-1984 experimental movie:

MOVIE 62

I’ve been trying to figure out a movie I saw as a young child for years and years. Rented it in Manhattan in the early 80′s (’82? ’83?) but don’t know the release date. However, the soundtrack as I remember it was pretty experimental (Liquid Liquid reminds me of it) so I think fairly contemporary to its VHS release. The film consisted entirely of a white background and variety of multicolored, fantastic creatures flying by, occasionally with little visual jokes (for example, one holding a banner that says “Hi, Mom”). Sometimes there were mutterings or other vocal cues but they were muffled and indistinct background noise. I recall it being fairly long (not a short film).

PlayV is looking for the title of a demon-possession movie set on an island. Matt A. is “almost 100% certain” he’s thinking of Stephen King’s Storm of the Century.

MOVIE 63

I saw this movie when i was a kid and i can’t remember it’s name: it was about an island, i think the action took place in summer and all of a sudden a heavy winter came, there was a murder, an old lady was killed in her house, covered in blood, the police had no clue and i think there was something written with blood on the wall or i’m just confused, anyway the bad guy was an old man possessed by 7 demons, the ones that jesus sent into 7 pigs from a possessed man, and they were back and wanted to make all of the people on the isle suicide by jumping into the water one by one, also when the man was laughing he was showing demonic fangs. The people were hiding in the church so he couldn’t do anything to them, but when all the kids were asleep he entered into their dreams and was holding their hands and was flying with them. He wanted one of the kids to come with him and if the people wouldn’t decide which one he would release the hands of the kids and that would kill them so they decided which kid to go by drawing lots and it was the child of the main character. In the end the man was gone and everything was fine on the isle. The main character was walking in a city outside the isle and saw the man with his child and the child laughed and showed the same demonic fangs as the old man and the movie was over.

May searches for a movie about a man who kills (?)  lover by hitting her with a hammer in her sleep.

MOVIE 64

I watched a movie years ago and it was about a woman with two daughters. Her daughters are grown up in their 20s. The mother meets a man and him and her seem very happy and she loves him. And eventually he kills her in her sleep or just injures her by hitting her in the head with a hammer. The actor, i think, had long-ish brown hair. Thats all I know.

Natasha has extensive memories of a sketch/anthology film full of ironic stories, but no name to go with the memories. Can someone help her?

MOVIE 65

I’m looking for a movie that I’m pretty sure was set in the 90′s. It’s made of various sketches, all of them starting with the name “Lost in….” something. In one of them, a midget falls in love with a woman, but she’s in love with a guy who’s not a midget. The midget then cuts off his rival’s legs, and shows up in the woman’s doorstep on top of his legs, so he’s of average height now. She’s moved by this, and the sketch ends with her pulling up her skirt and showing him she wears prosthetic legs below the knees. I’m pretty sure there’s no dialogue in this sketch.

The other sketches I remember are:

Two guys meet in a hotel lobby, they make a bet, and the prize’s a Ferrari. One of the guy wins, but the other leaves him with a toy car. There was also one where some people are waiting outside a theater to see an artist that’s a Master of Disguises, and only later they realize that the artist was there all along, disguised among them (no dialogue on this one too).

In the last one, a guy wakes up after a night of heavy drinking, and finds out his wife left him. He gets pissed off and calls her, and it takes a while for him to realize that she didn’t leave her, he slept in the neighbour’s instead.

Marie is looking for what she’s pretty sure was a French a movie about a girl with no friends. matchstickman suggests In Your Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0307343/

MOVIE 66

So, it might be a french movie (certain 95% it was) and it was about a family with one young girl. The girl didn’t have friends at school or something like that and I remember her mother trying to invite some girls from school to come to her birthday party. Then I remember at her birthday party that the girl at some point started screaming. Not much after that comes back except that her mother (and I think her father too) were confined in some kind of asylum, they must have gone mad or something. Maybe her mother killed herself in the end. Also, the mother was blond.
That’s what I remember, I must have seen it more that 5 years ago.

Stephanie is looking for a full-length “The Little Match Girl” adaptation that starts with a Gypsy caravan.

MOVIE 67

My nanna had it on video/dvd (I dont remember) in about 2002/2004. It started with the girl and her grandmother in a gypsy caravan, then her grandmother, whilst in the caravan, rolled into a frozen over river and died. then the girl went on the have her story in the city selling match sticks. For the life of me, I cant find it! And no one can remember what it was called/who it was by/etc!

Krissyleec wants the title of a movie about a witch in a tree stump. Matt is sure this is from the miniseries “Tin Man” and advises to go to “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tin_Man_%28TV_miniseries%29. Ctrl + F on the link I gave you……Then put in the word hand, read that sentence and voila, I’m amazing.” (P.S.–he is amazing).

MOVIE 68

There were two sisters playing in the forest. They went inside the trunk of a tree and there was a witch in there. The sisters held hands and they glowed. The witch couldn’t hurt them. Then the sister ran away and the other sister was taken over by the witch.

iamaries03 seeks the name of a movie about a perfume that grants a girl psychic powers.

MOVIE 69

I’m looking for a movie about a girl who found some magic perfume or something of the sort, and she sprayed it on herself and when she did, she was able to feel other peoples emotions or what they were feeling when she thought about the person. There was a scene where she was thinking about her boyfriend, and he was cheating on her and having sex, and she felt all of the sexual tension and emotions of the boy while he was having sex with someone else.

casjacobs simly remembers a film featuring cutout animation:

MOVIE 70

I recall seeing this on television when I was very young sometime during Christmastime, but I don’t seem to remember anything Christmassy about it. It was in an animation style very similar to Terry Gilliam’s Python work, but the cutouts were hand-drawn, not lifted. One scene involved two bumbling people climbing up a slope inside a cave. At the top of the slope, there was the face of an old man in stone. The two characters fell down the hill. Another scene involved two old people talking inside a sort of flying saucer type vehicle. It could teleport, I believe. Wow, writing this down, it sounds really crazy. I hope these bits might jog someone’s memory!

James is looking for an anime featuring multicolored eyes. Matt suggests Kaze no Stigma: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rURt0l_QCz8

MOVIE 71

I’m looking for an anime movie. At the beginning there a girl/boy priestess with multi colored eyes. I think the eyes are red and blue, and her village is attacked by somebody, they drop down in crates and burn the village to the ground, in 1 scene there is a ring of fire and the boy/girl uses some kind of wind power to escape. There is a desert scene when he/she hides with a guy trying to protect her but then tanks roll up from the desert and manage to capture them or something. After being captured their taken onto a ship where a rather muscly guy harvests their eye power into crystals and after that he stabs himself in the eye with the crystals to gain his/her power.

Whatwasthatfilm is looking for a movie from the 1990s or earlier with a naked man being served at a feast.

MOVIE 72

SOLVED! (The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover)

Shannon is looking for an anthology film with a segment where a boy trades in his parents. judas beast says it’s “Children’s Zoo” from the 1980s incarnation of “The Twilight Zone”–I think he nailed it!

MOVIE 73

Does anyone remember a short movie that was on Twilght Zone or Amazing Stories movie? It has a 8-10 yr old boy sitting at breakfast and his parents are fighting. The boy reminds his parents that they would both take him to the zoo or something. When they get there, mom and dad are sent to a waiting area. The boy goes in and looks down a hall filled with displays of parents in different backgrounds. He looks and finds one couple who looks normal and nice and chooses them. On the way out he sees his real parents in a new display begging him to take them back. The boy just walks out with his new parents. It has more short stories or movies after that. Like the Twlight Zone The Movie.

Melissa seeks the name of a murder mystery movie from the 80s or 90 where a pair of guilty women escape punishment. Rob M. suggests “Mortal Thoughts (1991), directed by Alan Rudolph, starring Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.”

MOVIE 74

…it goes somehting like this…a woman’s husband was killed/murdered and her and her best friend are telling the cops the story, proving their innocence. They get let go and then it talks about how it really happened and they actually killed him. It was an older movie…80′s maybe 90′s?

Dana Xu is looking for a silent movie featuring a socialite in a car crash.

MOVIE 75

Silent movie from the 20s/30s where a young socialite kills herself in a car by hitting a tree at the end. Saw it on HBO in the 90s and its been haunting me since…

anika remembers a movie with a wolf boy and a tree with red or orange flowers.

MOVIE 76

Saw it on tv in the late 90s. I think it was a fantasy movie.the only scene I remember is there was a boy a wolf/dog and a magical tree. The tree had some huge orange or red colored flowers. Sorry but this is the only part I can remember.

Kyle is looking for a movie where a video game controller thingee attached itself to a person’s hand. It’s not Videodrome. Dr. Orloff  and MikeV both vote for eXistenZ.

MOVIE 77

I have been looking for this movie about this guy who gets this video game controller or something but it looks like it is made out of flesh and it like attaches to him or something and he goes into this wierd place. I might be off on some parts but it was a long time ago. But the living thing ends up dieing or something and i think it was a guy and girl running away with this thing from some people or something along those lines.

Anthony has a memory involving a boy submerged in a capsule, possibly a sci-fi/horror from around 1990 aimed at kids, and it could be from a TV show as well.

MOVIE 78

A boy is in a capsule that looks like a water heater. I believe it is outside a house. I don’t remember if he was forced in or got in himself. There is a window on top and you can see they boy in the water and his mother is screaming his name trying to get him out. I remember it as a scary movie or tv show and it may have had sci fi elements. I feel like the boy wanted to go in there like it would heal him or clone him but these are distant memories. I just vividly remember his mother screaming at the little window and you could see his face under water and it freaked me out!

Timeframe: I’m guessing this was around 1990. At first I thought it might have been on the Disney Channel because I was also looking for another movie that I had remembered scenes from and found out it was “The Watcher in the Woods” but I have looked and can’t find this in anything related to Disney.

Maxwell is looking for a “fog horror.” Steve says “Movie 79 is The Monster Club. It’s an anthology horror with one story as described. I vividly remember the bit where they’re reading from a book describing them finding a creature by a grave ‘gnawing’ on bones.”

MOVIE 79

British movie probably from the 60′s or 70′s where a young couple is driving around and I believe they get a flat or breakdown. There’s this whole quaint English village full of fog. The fog surrounds the place and has turned the villagers into cannibals or murderers. The couple tries to hide in a church at one point and I believe the priest was also a murderer/cannibal. Eventually they get police in on the case who start helping them out but turn out to be murderers/ cannibals too. It’s possible that they tried driving away but couldn’t leave the foggy village.

Jack Plumm is looking for a B&W Gothic animation with a spider.

MOVIE 80

A black and white (and possibly silent) film I saw in the late 90′s. It had title cards like a silent film and I swear it was an adaptation of the spider and he fly except no adaptation of it ever made matches what I saw. It was cell animated and very Gothic in influence.

Demyan is looking for a ghost movie.

MOVIE 81

I watched this movie in 2008 but it could be older, it´s about a family that moved into a building and there always a ghost that you never get to see except for a few seconds, but basically I think it shows 3 versions of the stories or possibilities but it always end up one of the family members getting killed or kidnapped, the only part I remember is a kid hanging from a balcony, you think is the mother but no she is looking for him you think is an accident but no you can see someone holding him.

joking420 remembers a scene where a housekeeper walks in on a couple making love, from a French movie.

MOVIE 82

Ive been searching for a movie i remember from late 90s on HBO or something. It was a French film about a girl. The only scene i really remember is she is working as a housekeeper at a hotel and she walks into a room with 2 people having sex. When she sees this she run into the bathroom to be sick. The lady in the room follows her into the bathroom and tells her she could have her fired.

Alex is looking for an anime featuring a mysterious mask.

MOVIE 83

6 years ago (when i was 6) i watched an show that was about a group of middle or high schoolers whom found a strange mask, through the show, the mask appeared in several places but had not been moved, a few times it appeared in the house of the victim, that person put it into a draw to make sure it didn’t move, but as they went downstairs the mask would appear there, in place of one of the paintings in the stairway.

It was definitely a horror movie but in a cartoony format, an anime, I can’t remember what it was called and I’ve searched many times, but cant find it. The reason I couldn’t remember what it was called is because it was in Japanese, but with English subs.

Nina has a vague memory of a fantasy with a girl fleeing a villain in black on a sleigh. Jolene suggests this could be Babes in Toyland (1986 version) with Drew Barrymore.

MOVIE 84

I remember there being a teenage girl in the movie who went into a magical land. I remember the villain was a man dressed in black, and at one time in the movie she was on some sort of sledge trying to get away from him and she veered into a tree. I know this is vague but I really want to know if I just imagined this as I am SURE I watched it.

Kevin seeks an anime featuring a demon invasion and rape. I suggested he check out this IMDB search but someone else may recognize his description right off the bat.

MOVIE 85

The movie i am looking for is a anime of the mid 80′s i want to say, its similar in many ways to the series called Urotsukidōji or legend of the overfiend, and it starts off with a bunch of demons running around terrorising people in the town and everyone is searching for the reincarnated ruler of all the demons, it turns out to be a boy in a catholic school and just like in legend of the overfiend he is a push over and his powers don’t show unless he is being bothered or getting very emotional for any reason, so there is this girl in the school and she gets raped by two upperclassmen one male and one female, the girl is a friend of the main charectors and the two upperclassmen turn out to be some sort of angelic beings and fly the girl to what looks to be heaven at the end of the movie which sends the main boy into an uproar and he unleashes all of his dormant power and all of the demons in town seem to be able to feel the power of their ruler awakening.

Lacey is looking for a movie with a bicycle crash and the word “street” or “road” in the title (not Arlington Road). Denise R. suggests “Reservation Road with Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Ruffalo.” Matchstickman suggests Roadflowerhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110999/ — as an alternative.

MOVIE 86

I watched it from a video rental store when I was young probably around 6-8 or 9, so late 90′s. All I remember is there’s this one scene where this kid is on his bike and he’s at the end of this street and crashes because this van or car comes and hits him. Then I remember his dad was trying to figure out what happened and or stop it from happening again and I remember the movie being called something street or road, I use to think it was Arlington road but obviously not that.

SamuraiFox18 remembers a scene with what he recalls as a half-woman in a computer chair. John Sherman thinks this may be an episode of “Amazing Stories,” and Stacey even has an episode name: “Miscalculation.”

MOVIE 87

Its in a guys bedroom, and there is half of a woman attached to a computer chair. the woman moves herself closer to the guy who has a magazine in his hand. the guy freaks out and tries to get out of the room… I saw it around 1996 and it looked like it was late 80s or early 90s.

From Jack Plumm. It’s not Flowers in the Attic.

MOVIE 88

A group of children are forced to stay upstairs during an adult party. In the trailer there would be pleasent clips of the adults enjoying themselves down below to cheery party music, but it would keep cutting back to gory scenes of the kids upstairs being murdered and mutilated. They would call down for their parnts for help but they wouldn’t listen or couldn’t hear. amy mum says it was similar in feel to Black Christmas but wasn’t the same.

From Matto: a gopher (?) in a toilet, and he’s not thinking of Ghoulies.

MOVIE 89

There was an 80′s (maybe early 90′s) movie where a woman was scared by a ?gopher? that reared up from the toilet. Then her ?boyfriend/husband? was there in a daze and she said “I love you!” and he replied, “Even with a ?gopher? in my arm?” and it popped out and scared her. I think there may also be a man in a completely dark room that gets his head chopped off. The animal (not monster) that was in the toilet also was in the guy’s arm. (there were two).

Jensee is looking for a thriller.

MOVIE 90

I remember watching a movie in the late 70′s or early 80′s that seemed like a horror or suspence film, where a young boy (or girl) is suspicious of a dangerous man and follows him to a house where the man is having sex in the shower with some woman. I don’t think it was The Stepfather, but that always comes to mind. The suspence has a similar feel as The Stepfather.

Robin is looking for a B&W movie with someone who believes himself to be Jesus—possibly Whistle Down the Wind? Nicolai Jensen has what may be a better suggestion: Carl Theodor Dreyer’s Ordet.

MOVIE 91

I saw it on IFC around 2005 or so. I think it may be Scandinavian or possibly Eastern European. It’s in black and white although it’s a modern movie. It’s set around 1900 or earlier in a very rural sort of rustic place. There’s a man who lives with his parents and he and they believe him to be Jesus.

Cc9540 remembers a movie about an alien girl who doesn’t understand Earth showers. E.J. thinks she’s found it: the Australian TV show “The Girl from Tomorrow.”

MOVIE 92

There’s this girl and I think she’s from another planet and she wears this jewel on her forehead (I think). how they “shower” is the stand in this little squared out area and touch their shoulders and this energy beam thing comes down there entire body while they have there clothes on and that’s how they get clean. she come to earth and makes a friend and the alien girl is trying to figure out the shower. She stands in it, touches her shoulders and nothing till she realizes there is a “waterfall” in their own house. She puts her clothes in the microwave and sets it on fire. One scene the two girls are sitting in the tree house and it looks like they are in the middle of space. The mom comes up to check on them and freaks out from what she sees and falls from the tree house.

Jose Perez has vague memories of a sexy scene with four black actors.

MOVIE 93

I would like help on a movie that i saw when i was a little kid. There’s two blacks guys that open a door and find two naked black girls. One of the guy leaves scared, and i guess tje other one bangs both girls, but my parents covered my eyes. So this is really killing me to try to find out. 1996-2000???

Chris Baird is looking for a short film about experimental bicycles, probably from the 1960s or 1970s.

MOVIE 94

In the early 1970′s there was a short film that was shown to fill time on the Mississippi Public Broadcasting network. It was silent, in color, and appeared to be from the late 60′s or early 70′s. It showed people riding experimental bikes, and as the movie went on the bikes became more complicated. Towards the end of the movie the bikes went out of control, carrying their riders into a lake or river. The movie ended with people standing waist deep in water, looking for their bikes. This short film was often shown with the Canadian film Cosmic Zoom, so it may have been Canadian.

Mitchell G. is looking for a Taiwanese (?) horror movie with a demon dog. Rae suggests the Pang brothers’ The Child’s Eye.

MOVIE 95

The movie is a horror type set in i believe Taiwan with some high school students that are stuck because of a riot in the city the take refuge in a crappy hotel where after a while the story moves to there being ghosts and a shadow like realm where everything’s the same but all nether world also is a demon dog thing which you later learn is a guy’s daughter, all revolves around some curse of killing a dog…

Amanda C. is looking for a fantasy film:

MOVIE 96

I’m looking for this movie that I watched when I was a child. I think it was kind of old, from what I remember of the picture quality. I don’t remember much about it except I think there was a young girl (or boy?) and they were traveling with an old man (I think he was a knight or a soldier) and in one scene, I believe they were escaping some kind of tyrant king? I remember this particular scene being very red with lots of fire and the castle or ship or something was coming down around him. I think the king thought the old man was trying to take his queen? And then the queen distracted him with a kiss or something while the others escaped and then the king and queen died?

fenasi kerim has a vague memory of a sleaze movie:

MOVIE 97

…a pervert man was spying out women’s houses and sometimes rapes them at night when they are sleeping, finally one of the women realises the situation.

From Johnson: a parody with Darth Vader and Madeleine, circa 2002.

MOVIE 99

There’s a movie that has darth vader in it and also madeleine and the girls from the house that madeleine lives in are all in a room and darth vader appears in the window. I know i’m not making this up because my sister remembers it. I watched it like 2002. it might have been a parody.

Asked by Shawna: probably late 1960s, a girl dips a cat’s paw in blood to sign a letter.

MOVIE 100

…was shot late 60s, early 70s, looks similar to movies from that era. A blonde teenaged girl has witnessed a murder, I think, and is trying to solve it. At one point she writes a note to someone I think she thinks is it and signs the note by dipping her kitties paw into ink and putting it to the paper. There is a scene where she’s snooping and ends up in a meat locker and I think there’s a body in there. A lot of the scenes are at night, from what I can remember. I think she also has a crush on a man in the movie and is following him (NOT the Lemon movie) and I think that’s how she gets mixed in with the murder stuff. Of course the murders are following her and for some reason I have the impression they were Asain, but I could be mixing my movies… I think it was late 60s as apposed to early 70s, and I think there was something about kitties in the title. I think. lol Not much help, I know. :/ Oh and the blonde heroine’s hair was in a ponytail, I think.

Chanse Lyle Howe is looking for a movie where a “higher being” falls in love with a human girl.

MOVIE 101

…the first thing that i remember is it focusing on a clock. The movie fires on and you find out this guy is like, i say, not human because he’s not an alien but he was of a higher being? So he falls in love with this girl but his people keep trying to make him forget keep trying to make him forget cause its against the rules or something to love a human. I know it sounds like a movie called 9? By that’s not it. If i remember correctly the guy i keep referring to was also their leader.

Nikita is looking for the name of a movie she suspects is 1970s erotica:

MOVIE 102

I remember being young and watching something forbidden for kids on TV that looked like 70s erotica.

The movie took place underground where a man was kept by a group of naked women. They had a queen with a beautiful crown and a cape…but everyone was naked.

This man was kept as a toy that women would play with, and I remember a scene where he was tied down to the floor of a huge white room and all these women were touching him including the queen..it was erotica…not porn! There were two women who were planning on escaping…now I don’t know if they were all held captive there, if they knew each other before this, but the two of them were rescuing him.

I am not sure what the language was, it might have been Italian, or English.

The last scene is of them crawling out from underground. The man was carrying a butterfly in the cage…and that is the last thing I remember.
Also, he resembles that main guy with a mustache from The Gods Must Be Crazy movie.

bartdan87 is looking for a movie where dogs or creatures eat their tormentor—he thinks its a short from the 70s or 80s that might have played on the BBC. The Awful Dr. Orloff suggests it could be wither a segment from “Hammer House of Horror” with Peter Cushing or from the Amicus horror anthology film Tales from the Crypt.

MOVIE 103

All i can remember through is a man who is locking up some dogs or creatures of some kind underground, or something and am pretty sure the ending was these starving dogs/ creatures get out and eat this man. It was a short TV film possibly on BBC set in 70s/ 80s by the graphic/ acting i can remember.

Ephream remembers a single scene from an animated film with a witch pretending to be a girl’s mother, made sometime before 2000:

MOVIE 105

A girl is lost in a magical world and she has this friend she made in that world, throughout the movie she is looking for her mother, in this one scene she thinks she sees her mother, but then her friend quickly stops her saying that its a trap, and her mother turns out to be a witch in black robes… saw this back in around the 90′s.

dennis remembers a military base setting and rats in a movie from the late 90s or before.

MOVIE 106

…two girls are with this military guy and they go to his place back at the base, i remember at one point they’re in the back of this truck and kill these rats that appear, later they accidentally kill the guy, and i think i remember some military guys wrestling, anyone think this sounds familiar? Saw it when i was like 12 in the late 90s, 96-99 sometime I think.

Roxxe needs help with a movie about a girl painter who’s work is stolen by a famous artist who lives in a houseboat. It’s not I’ve Heard the Meremaids Singing.

MOVIE 107

…it starts off with this girl, who is a talented painter, at her school painting a scene for a play. The girl is friends with this boy with glasses. Somehow the girl meets this man who she thinks is a famous artist, he lives in a house boat on a river. The girl does this really great painting and the “artist”, being a con-man, claims the painting as his own. The girl tells everyone that she did the painting and, of course, no one believes her. He friend, however, has a picture that he took (in disguise) while the girl and the “artist” were at a restaurant that shows the girl with the painting. In the scene at the restaurant the “artist” hides behind the painting be cause he doesn’t want people to see him.

Not much to go on with william’s mystery movie: drug addict, swamp, three oddball brothers. Dave says this is “The Shy People w/ Barbara Hershey, mid 80′s.”

MOVIE 108

A movie about A mother who moves her drug taking daughter to the swamps to live with A strange relative and her three oddball sons.

Cesar describes several scenes from a movie about an old man looking for a white dog, possibly the same as movie 53 above:

MOVIE 109

I am trying to find the name of a movie, with a similar description as MOVIE 53.
In that description, Kayra says that it was a boy trying to find his dog.
My memories are about an old an trying to find whis white little dog (the breed maybe was Coton de Tulear) with the help of a young man.
I remember some passages of the film.
One of them, both persons entering to a doghouse, trying to recover this dog and they met with the dog catcher, which yes, he was mouscle-boun and there was an inevitable fight between this dog-catcher and the young man. The fight was long and the young man was loosing, while the dog-catcher put some extrange liquid over his knuckles (maybe anesthesia). Suddenly, the young man asked the old man to play his mouth-organ (or harmonica). After listening to the music (maybe any melody) this gave him (the young man) like certain energy or rithm to fight better.
Another passage I remember of this film is that they realized that this dog had been bought by a little girl, so they (the young man and the old man) found out where the address of the owner was, and went in front to that house waiting for the moment when the door was oppened. So, when it happened, the old man began to whistle very loud so that his dog listen and get out. And it happened, unfortunately the dog came out of the house so quickly that no one realized that a big truck was passing by the street and the only thing it is seen, is that apparently the dog finished under the truck, it braked very hard, and all was in silence, and after a few seconds it was heard the shout of the old man but happy, taking his little dog up on his two hands, and turning on his feet.
I think this is the end of the film.
Another passage I remeber very well, is this old man, with the young man, trying to enter to a evening dress party. The old man was always wearing like an old smoking. So he said (in spanish because it was a translated film) “…one day I said to me, why having two dresses, if I can have two dresses in one”..and then he wrapeed his smoking taking out like a tail, and making his hat bigger just pushing it from the inside and he took out, I do not know from where, a cane.

Jessica seeks the name of a post-apocalyptic teen movie. Mofo Rising/Rob suggests Larry Clark’s “awful” Teenage Caveman.

MOVIE 110

I watched [it in] either the late 90s or early 2000s. All I vaguely remember is a group of teenagers (i think) trying to survive the ending of the world, or something of that sort. The teenagers stuck together to try and repopulate, also it was future based. They were in some sort of warehouse where they had all of their supplies.. One scene I remember is, one of the females has sex with a male and she got pregnant, but she died or got killed. The ending is, the guy who tried to inseminate the females was the only one left because he killed the other males, and he successfully started a new population.

A description of a very crazy-sounding movie from Andrew:

MOVIE 111

I’m trying to find a movie that I saw when I was young, sometime between 1995 and 2000 I think. It was about a man who starts seeing the world differently, literally. I remember there was a scene with a burning skeleton going down a slide, guy in a biohazard suit, Marilyn Monroe’s Happy Birthday song, and especially a scene where the protagonist is escaping with a girl and runs into police with guns, but he sees them as priests with wooden guns, so he laughs, opens up the floor and escapes. Then he goes through some electric underground grid and talks to some architect type guy. Then I remember something about him seeing his parents in a desert-like place and they have some electric voice box things in their throats to speak. Sorry, that’s all I remember since I was very young (5-10) and an immigrant to the US.

Kern wants the name of a movie about a teenage runaway who’s seduced by a woman who takes him in, with a famous actor:

MOVIE 112

I think I watched this when I was fairly young so probably somewhere the 90s to 2000…

It seemed like one of those coming of age movies maybe? I just remember the main guy was like teenage boy that was becoming a young man sort of deal. He either ran away from home or was an orphan. He lived with different people and it was about his experiences about that. The one scene i remember because it was so messed up when I watched it. So he’s probably 16? 18? Pretty young and he gets taken in by this married couple. Like in their 40s 50s probably. So they treated him like a son. But the messed up part was the lady/mom basically would sneak into his room and have sex with him. And I think he did it only because he felt like he had to. And at some point i think he had to run away from them too.

The actor was sort of famous for his time? I think…i just remember thinking he’s pretty cute.

Joe’s memory involves a failed suicide attempt and nudists in a van:

MOVIE 113

I think I watched this movie maybe 10 years ago, it was something like this:
I remember there was a girl in a car trying to kill herself with the car smoke but failed and a guy for some reason joined her later..
and I remember another scene that four people (2 guys and 2 girls) drive to a place just outside the town and get to the back of a van and get naked, they were like nudists or something.

Kelly’s mystery movie has a woman trapped in a computer and a head in a freezer:

MOVIE 114

I’m trying to find a movie I saw in about 2000-2005. There was a guy and he had a wife/girlfriend. And there was a girl in a computer(???) and he was in love with he and trying to find a way to get her out or something like that. And his wife/girlfriend was really jealous and the guy gave her a gift at some point in the movie. And for some reason the chick that was in the computer, her body was frozen, and he kept her head in his freezer. Then his wife/girlfriend found the head and took it outside to the road and smashed it on the road. Then in the end of the movie the guy gets the woman out of the computer or whatever it was. And then the guy’s (best?) friend somehow gets into the computer, but he actually wants to be there, unlike the girl. And I think that the computer’s background was just plain white, but I’m not sure.

justin’s looking for an “evil grandma” movie from the 1990s or before. Sam suggests Jack Ketchum’s The Girl Next Door.

MOVIE 115

I saw maybe in the late 90s so its not that old but from what i remember it was about 2 girls who had to go live with there grandma I think because there parents died but there grandma hated them and was horrible to them and towards the end of the film she tied them up in the basement and had the neighborhood kids rape and torture her and one kid tried to set them free but she ended up dying right as the kid got her necklace back from the grandma to give to the one girl.

Roy Dixon seeks the name of an old (pre-1968) black and white movie about ghosts in a hotel.

MOVIE 116

This black and white film I think I saw it in 1968 or there abouts was about Ghosts living inside this Hotel and if anyone who stayed at the hotel escaped then all the ghosts would disappear. I remember right at the end this guy did finally “escape” BUT he swung open this big iron gate and sank back against it and breathed a sigh of relief only for the gate to swing back and impale him on this large iron spike. So he became a ghost and the other ghosts all stayed.

Ryan Healy remembers a movie with a machine that strips women, probably from the  1960s-1970s. Jason suggests he may be slightly misremembering the “Excessive Machine” sequence from Barbarella.

MOVIE 117

I saw a clip of a film when I was a kid, in the mid 90s. Sixties/seventies era, color. A scientist is using a machine to rake a woman’s clothes off. It was broadcast on airwave tv, so it may have been editied, a tv movie, or a tv episode. I don’t remember anything else.

abby only remembers a couple of kids, a houseboat and a black panther.

MOVIE 118

I watched a movie on TV in the 80′s and it seemed like it was older then… I was just a little kid so I”m not sure… It was not black and white… It had a little boy and his sister on a house boat. The house boat crashed and there was a black panther stalking them.. Thats all I can remember…

denny’s looking for an offbeat romantic/horror movie (?) about a possible cannibal.

MOVIE 119

think it was released in the early 00′s about a functional special guy in his 20′s who starts to spy on this gal across the street from his apartment. its a classic long shot situation, he’s from a dysfunctional family (mommy issues) she’s a young professional who’s always throwing parties and luring guys back to her place. you watch this through his apartment window and eventually it becomes more intense and the question if she is a cannibal starts to flourish.

Mike is looking for an HBO comedy short. Mofo Rising/Rob recognizes it:”Stalker Guilt Syndrome” by Mark Maron.

MOVIE 120

I saw this Short on HBO back in the late 90s early 2000s. It was on between movies. It was a comedy about a guy who gets off a bus at the same stop as this girl. Every time she makes a turn, he happens to be making the same turn. He starts to worry that she’ll think he’s following her (the movie has his inner thoughts as a voice over).

He tries various things to make it clear he’s not, but everything he does just makes it worse. One example I remember was that he stopped to tie his shoe so that she’ll get far ahead of him, but at the same time, she stops at a new stand to get a newspaper, so it just looks like he was waiting for her.

bobby remembers a flick about a cop framing people.

MOVIE 121

I saw this movie i around the 2004-2006 time but i know i was made before either of these. i was young and i only remember a couple parts about it. i think the story line was about a evil cop/ sheriff who kidnapped people by saying they were under arrested and i know that one of the people he kidnapped had a flashback about when he/she was a kid and was riding a bike with a friend and the friend got hit by a car and went flying into a wall and even thou he was wearing a helmet his head cracked open and i think he died. another part is when the cop pulled someone over on a motorcycle and planted drugs in a smiley face bag on them and might have taken him in. i think the motorcyclist in the movie was like famous in the movie and he might have bribed his way out but i don’t remember any help would be great its not silent or in b/w.

From Samantha: anime, early nineties or prior, reincarnation and a heavenly train… zombiebait is sure this is A Chinese Ghost Story.

MOVIE 122

I watched this as a kid in the early 90′s. It was an anime movie and the most vivid part I remember was when ppl died they got on this train in heaven where they were dropped off somewhere and start falling from the sky. Next they get transformed into babies and a mallet pops out, hits them on the head (think that’s to signify them losing there memory from there previous lives) and they get born again. I also remember a boy and a girl character telling each other not to get hit so they remember to meet under a tree.sorry that’s all I can remember…

From skyler: an army with torches that villagers mistake for a dragon of fire. My long-shot suggestion is Throne of Blood. Bailey’s much better suggestion is The 13th Warrior with Antonio Banderas.

MOVIE 123

I’m trying to find a movie where some village people are seeing an incoming a giant fire snake or fire dragon in the forest but it turns out to be a marching army of enemies with torches. I also remember the enemies wearing bear skin or something. The village has to stay away from the forest at night or else they will be killed.

From lane: horror, mid 90s or earlier, monster dies by having a microphone shoved down its throat. Jason suggests The Outpost a.k.a. Mind Ripper a.k.a. The Hills Have Eyes Part 3, “presented by Wes Craven” and starring Lance Henriksen.

MOVIE 124

I saw the movie in the mid 90′s, all i can remember is that they were in the desert and there was a cave. there was a person also i think he was a monster as well and to kill people he had this long thing come out of his throat and it had a small spike on the end of it. and to kill this thing his spike comes out of his mouth and one of the actors shoves a microphone on the end of it and it electrocutes him and he dies. that is all i know.

From chavezac: a Star Wars ripoff with space pirates. Kellrayc suggests The Ice Pirates (1984) as a possibility, and so does Jason.

MOVIE 126

I remember a movie from the late 70s or early 80s that I liked as a kid. It was a sci fi movie and the opening scene had a group of space pirates in a warehouse shootout with blasters. I don’t remember what they were after or if they found it but after that they got in their ship and flew off. Most of the film from there is hazy but I think they were being chased and split up. One of the gang was an alien who went to a space station hotel of sorts. Another of the gang met him there and after the meeting the alien killed himself. Sorry not much detail, but any ideas?? We had it on Betamax, so when our player broke when I was a kid I lost the movie. It reminded me a lot of Star Wars…

From MikeV: A little boy kills robbers who are holding his family hostage. The description sounds like a violent version of a Home Alone movie.

MOVIE 129

It is movie about robbers (i am not sure) taking members of rich family as hostages except little boy. The boy kills robbers one by one with homemade stuff/traps. All I remember is that one bad guy is killed by water gun filled with lighter fluid and one guy (he was some kind of computer specialist) is killed by electicity when he steps on wet carpet. That’s all I remember.

From Jonida: a house on an island full of dolls, from the 1980s or earlier.

MOVIE 130

There was this movie in the 80s. There was this illegal girl of a woman to whom her mother left one house in one small island. The girl goes to stay in a hotel just in front of this island and during the night she sees light in the house and during the day she sees someone in the window. Everytime she takes the boat and goes to this house but she finds lots of dolls and one of them even cries. At the end the house burns, the girl watches it from the hotel and also sees someone at the window.

sophie remembers a scene with a spaceship and a woman being dropped and eaten by a giant snake.

MOVIE 131

There on some spaceship or something, and there on this ledge, and there is a guy holding onto a woman, and trying to help her up. But he doesnt and lets go accidently, and some giant snake thing swallows her whole.

from Jamie: Woman falls in love with an imaginary robber/rapist wearing a black glove.

MOVIE 132

I think this one is a suspense. A woman meets a man in a store while it is being robbed. The guy places his black gloved hand over her mouth during the robbery (and maybe gropes her as well?). The movie goes on to show them develop a really hot and heavy relationship. We are led to believe they are mutually fond of one another. At one point, they have sex in a tunnel at a park, then they go to one of those photo booths and get their photos taken. She carries it around with her. Later, she is telling the story of how she met the guy to some detectives (I can’t remember why). They think she’s made it all up. So, she goes to show the photo of them together. She sees the guy, but he isn’t really in the picture. So, she imaged the whole situation. That’s about all I’ve got.

from Amanda: 1990s or earlier, two brothers and a sister, depressed and lobotomized pulling a toy train, and running through a forest blindfolded (this part matches Intacto, but nothing else does).

MOVIE 133

I saw a movie in the 80-90ties. I think there were two brothers and a sister she was the youngest. The older brother was depressed and at the end he was lobotomized pulling a toy train. I think there was a fire too. And one time the big brother took his sister to the forest and he run blindfolded without hitting any trees. She tried this later but she ran in to the trees.

From Dave: Possessed stranger at sea, plot similar to Fallen with Denzel Washington, not Dead Calm.

MOVIE 134

It could be 70s or 80s but I mostly remember a couple finding a stranger at sea who turns out to be possessed, it’s not dead calm but as far as I know it followed a story line not far from the movie Fallen with Denzel Washington!

From Star: 2007 or before, painter dies falling off ladder, demon and altar in basement.

MOVIE 135

It starts out with a house being painted, the painter and ladder fall, painter dies. A young women, bf/husband and their friends come to this house and at night is when the terror starts. Everyone is pulled away from this young women and tortured and killed, one of her friends is killed …by fire and one by being hanged. Towards the end of movie in basement she is on like an alter of sorts and the demon tries to kill her, but the young women during this time has a vision of a doll that had a dagger in side it’s body, she finds this doll being a part of the crumbling basement wall after she wakes up and using the dagger to kill demon. At the end you see her with her backpack walking down the road away from the house. I saw this movie between 2003-2007 on Syf…

from silky: a pretty generic memory of what sounds like a noir/neo-noir.

MOVIE 136

What is the movie where there is a accident, wife disapears, crazy husband, cheater, and murder?

from Alice: Mid 80s or earlier, probably from the BBC, runaway gets involved with an older man.

MOVIE 137

Mid-80′s, most likely BBC, one film or mini series, blond teenage girl called Claire (?) runs away, sees older guy called Mac (?)

From Emily: a movie where monsters in a film reel come to life, possibly black and white.

MOVIE 138

An old movie, i think in black and white, where a boy goes in the basement of some old house (his grandpa’s?) and finds a film reel with monsters and then the monsters end up a coming to life?

From Zahraa: kid with moving toys kidnapped to help rob a bank? matchstickman suggests Malcolm: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091464/

MOVIE 139

It starts when a really small guy goes to two old people house in a rainy day and they keep him with them and he lives in a room which his toys can move then two men steal him to rob a bank that’s all I remember…

From Ralok: Underground creature, claims he’s a great warrior, trying to recharge his people’s sun? jmweasle suggests A Gnome Named Gnorm with Anthony Michael Hall: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109912/

MOVIE 140

It was about a creature . . .kinda like dobby, and he was like, coming up from underground or somewhere, and he claimed he was a great warrior. And he was trying to like, recharge his peoples sun or something, I think it took place in new york . . . the film wass weeeeird.

from Shane k: Father discovers son is a serial killer using the color white as a calling card.

MOVIE 141

There was a movie I saw in the 2000s about a father and son. The father always broke plans with the kid, but gave him 20 dollars every time he did. I think the father was a cop? The son ended up being some murder mastermind, and his calling card was the color white. At the end, the father finally goes in the sons bedroom and discovers its entirely white.

From Angela: sticky marshmallow stuff on a plane. Morgan suggests The Stuff (1985). Matchstickman suggests a TV show: “‘ Doomwatch.’ The Plastic Eaters, first episode, released in 1970 – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065290/.”

MOVIE 143

…made in the 70′s (I think)..people on a plane…floor is marshmellow-like substance and people step in it and get stuck…spreads through plane…

Also from Angela: 1980s, young people renovating a hotel.

MOVIE 145

…group of older teens (maybe early 20′s) finds and repairs an old hotel that’s falling apart….one scene, they’re painting the wooden siding outside and they paint each other in a musical montage of renovation…nearby town officials try to stop them (I think they dam up their irrigation or something)…made in the 80′s.

Martin H believes his mystery movie is a short silent film about a man eating blocks of fat and flying out a window.

MOVIE 146

I remember seeing what I believe to be a short film and a silent movie about a fat man who eats big blocks of fat, loses weight and finally flies out the window.

From Alex: foreign (Swedish?), girl in car separated from mother during rainstorm, says “mammooo mammoo” (or something similar).

MOVIE 147

I saw this movie on Netflix from April to May of 2012. As I can remember it was a foreign movie, possibly Sweedish. It starts off with a mother and her daughter I think in a car, maybe van, driving through a rain storm and the car either crashes or they stop for some reason. But the mother gets out for some reason and the daughter stays in the car. After a while the daughter worries why the mother has not returned to the car and she starts to hear things and goes out to look for her mother. She begins to say “mammoo mamoo” over and over again. She says it really weird and it sounds really funny, similar to how I spelled it out there. But she hears scary noises and then she rushes back into her car and locks the doors. The rain is loud and heavy and she hears scary noises and suddenly things start hitting the car and mud is thrown on the windshield. That is all I can remember.

From Roo: Room with wall full of drawers (?) and rats crawl out of the walls…

MOVIE 148

There is this weird guy in a dark room with all these draws [drawrs?] that make up this wall, then there is a little girl, then all these rodents crawl out of the walls? and the scientist was really tall…

From darkcyeote: short (TV episode?) featuring Michael Douglas (?), portal to another dimension.

MOVIE 149

It is a short. Perhaps 15 min long. I want to say it features Michael Douglas, but I may be wrong. Horror theme with a modern-day setting. The military has found some sort of “portal” into another dimension. They can see in this dimension, but they can’t enter. On the other side is what appears to be a “little house on the prairie” type homestead complete with a large family. The main protagonist (Micheal Douglas?) is obsessed with a blonde woman on the other side. Was it because of a deceased wife? The military somehow knows that the portal opens for only a small amount of time at random intervals. They use a simple ice cannon that “tests” the interface day and night. The protagonist tries to have a “lip reader” sent to understand what the people on the other side are saying. The military commander reprimands the protagonist and cancels the lip reader. The next day the portal is open and the protagonist jumps through. He meets the blonde woman who seems overjoyed to meet him. Her mouth then opens three feet long and she starts to devour him right along with the other inhabitants. An old man on the other side notices the protagonist and seems to cast a spell closing the portal. The end scene shows the family trying to get through the portal to the other side using a femur bone. End.

Peter Drury has little to go on:

MOVIE 150:

A film ends with a group of people looking for a girl who had run away in the snow.

from Dinos: older movie (70s or earlier) where children rule adults.

MOVIE 151

I’ m looking for an English-language movie i saw in Greek tv in late 70′s. (’78 or ’79). It’s about an imaginary place where young people rule, while the older are being prisoned(i think). I remember the last scene where the young leader behaves badly to a 13years old (or something) who gets angry and mumbles “When i get a little older I’ll get you prisoned”

From PD: short film, people murdered on a train, twist ending.

MOVIE 152

My sister visited a film festival some 5-10 years ago, where she saw a short action movie (like 10 minutes max). This is the plot: A Subway station, a woman in long coat gets on the train. There are three other folks in the wagon: one, lying on the seat, another one, listening to music on his walkman, and a a third one, old guy with a walking stick, rhythmically knocking with it on the floor. The train departs, there’s a tunnel and darkness, and when the view lights up again, one of the guys is dead — killed by a stab wound in his neck. Another tunnel, darkness, then light — second dead, once again with a small round bleeding hole in his neck. Third tunnel, and another dead character. Finally, the identity of the killer and the reason for the killing is revealed (don’t want to spoil it) in a surprising plot twist.

from alex:

From Jessica: family drama, teens dating, girl breaks her nose in a car accident.

MOVIE 155

A daughter dates a boy who i think her father despises. one night they’re driving and he obnoxiously puts on a pair of sunglasses, then they get into an accident. they both live but she had a broken nose. then at some dance or event her ex is seen with another girl dancing and kissing, so the girl with the broken nose goes over and punches him in the face. i think she had a younger sister too. i’m pretty sure it was a family drama but it ends good i think.

From yezenia: serial killer movie, head in freezer.

MOVIE 156

I’m looking for a movie i saw in middle school sometime from 2005-2009. there’s this serial killer guy who draws women in with his charm, and then kills them in his apartment. Most of the movie from what i saw, takes place in his apartment.

Here’s the two scenes that i remember:

1. he brings a girl home and then she finds a head of someone in his freezer, and she tries to play it off like she didnt see, but is really freaked out.

2. he takes a girl to bed, and while they are completely under the white sheets, and everything sounds like normal sexual behavior she starts screaming, and suddenly the sheets are soaked with blood. then he hops out of bed and she is dead.

From Paula:Black and white, comedy, people getting hit on the head with mortar as building’s being built.

MOVIE 157

I watched a movie in black and white where some men are building a house and each time they do some thing like mixing mortar it fall out of the bucket and hit some one or the ladder fall, something turn over it’s a real funny movie i watch it from the 80s. It’s like a army movie where a general goes around and see that everything is done bt in the end it’s he who get duck with the water or the mortar…

From Tony: Italian,? doctor in asylum has sister who’s a patient, nudity.

MOVIE 158

Italian? movie about an asylum, a fair share of nudity, a young doctor trying to find a cure for madness?, because as it turns out his sister is one of the inmates and he’s afraid it may be genetic. He vists his sister in a cell where she lies naked hiding in a corner covered in straw. A nurse is seen in her bed with a pillow between her legs. A naked inmate is covered by a nurse and pulls off the blanket.

If you have weird movie memories of your own that you can’t place, mention them in the comments and we’ll see if someone here can help.

  1. The only scene that I remembered was … The police/sheriff shot the prisoners on a deep hole along the road then the prisoners(soul, zombies or what you call that comes alive) kills who trespassed or go within that border where they were killed by the sheriff. They use construction materials to kill. The last part was, the prisoners had the chance to kill the sheriff and soon finds out that of the victims that goes within the border was his daughter. They rest in peace when they killed the sheriff.

  2. Ive been haunted by a movie I saw my mother watching 31 years ago, I was four. All I remember is a woman is having a nightmare about an old man with white hair coming after her, and placing a dot on her forehead. When she wakes up from the dream the dot is on her forehead and than she dies.

  3. I believe the entire movie was set on an airplane. I also think it was a British movie. I remember seeing it some time between 2011-2013, so I think that’s when it was released. I know I watched it shortly after a movie called “The Exam,” was released and they seemed to have the same general plot.

    A group of people wake up on an airplane and don’t know how they got there. Or maybe they all boarded a plane with a destination but they won’t go to the destination until a certain demand is met. I believe it is the first thought though.
    A voice comes on the speaker system and starts telling people to do things to other passengers or people they know, friends/family, will get hurt. In some scenes you see said friends/family being held hostage and getting tortured or killed until one of the passengers does what they are told.
    The passengers couldn’t get into the cockpit. I think the guy that is flying the plane is the guy over the intercom, but it may be remotely flown as well.
    I remember one guys wife/girlfriend was a hostage and they showed a bad guy going to the house to kill her unless a task was done. His friend/brother was a hostage as well and he got killed because they thought it was a joke or something of that sort.
    That’s pretty much all I can remember. I hope someone can help me.

    1. Hi Samantha, I am pretty sure from the detailed description above that your movie is called “Panic Button” – all the main characters have supposedly won a trip to New York after winning a competition on social media. But once the plane is in the air things start to turn nasty and the characters have to play games in order to keep t heir friends and family alive. Here is the link:

  4. I remember a film that I saw on HBO when I was a kid in the early 80s. It gave me nightmares. I vividly remember little monsters that looked like Jawas from Star Wars. They had little brown robes with hoods, but unlike Jawas their faces were clearly seen. The faces remind me of almonds – brownish, almond-shaped, wrinkled, blank stares with large, black eyes. The little monsters grabbed people and dragged them down small chutes. I think there were little hidden trap doors and passageways in this large house. I remember a scene of a dinner party and one of the little bastards was noticed by a guest peeking out from behind a large potted plant in the corner. Freaked me out for years. But I’d like help putting 2 and 2 together because now I’m a big horror film fan and I’d like to see the movie if I can.

    Cheers!

    1. That totally sounds like “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” (1973). I haven’t thought of that movie in decades! I could’ve sworn it was a vivid childhood nightmare until you began describing it here. Had to look it up and came up with this YouTube video that has everything I remembered as a child (the “chute” you mentioned is actually the small fireplace through which the creatures come): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yC-7t5VLLN4

      There’s also a 2010 remake, but I haven’t seen that one.

  5. When I was a kid, I saw the later half of this movie where two guys (not sure if more) were staying in a house nested in an igloo, I think. And one of them takes a shit, the other comes in and sees that there’s blood all around. Suddenly, this monster kind of sprung from the toilet and like, killed them all. Or at least that’s how I remembered it ended. Anyway, I really hope you can help me watch it again. Cheers!

    1. Rodiell,
      I think that might be called Dreamcatcher. It is based on a steven king novle. Im pretty sure thats what your thinking about!

    2. No i know its called dream catcher cuz i own the movie, and when i watched is at a kid, i used to be scared to sit on the toilet, i always had to watch it. I know its called dream catcher

  6. I remeber this movie where a british boy is getting chased home from school and ge starts going to this low life mans house and his mother is very sick and his dad meets a woman who has a son who is upset his mother likes the man and the boy hangs out with the goth like kids in school and close to the end the boy decides to enter the talent show and sing a song dedicated to his mom and the man goes up on stage to help him and at the end the man and the girl he likes end uo getting married and the british boy and son of the women end uo being like brothers

  7. I saw this movie in the late 90’s. It’s a car movie set back in the 70’s I believe & the guy drove a late 60’s Camaro I believe. One scene in the movie the guy sticks a $20 or a $50 bill to the windshield & tells the girl if she can reach it she can have it & he takes off racing(she never reaches it). Another scene almost at the end where the guy races & wins but the car catches fire & he lets it roll into the field where some other car have decayed.

  8. A fantasy allegory art film, short, between 30-60 minutes. Probably foreign. Saw on Bravo back in the ’80s when they were also playing “Street of Crocodiles”.

    Characters are puppets-like creations. Town is ruled by pig people. Story is told by a subjugated slave. One scene has the pig people callously discussing the virtues of using white swan necks to wipe their butts after crapping. The film climaxes with a big celebration ball in a big building. The slave guy locks all the doors and drops a chandelier holding lit candles down onto the pig people thus killing them all in the ensuing fire. Slave escapes through a hole in the roof.

    Seems like a pretty heavy-handed allegory against consumerism and capitalism. Which is fine with me. I just liked the fantasy elements.

    1. I wonder if this was an adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe’s short story ‘Hop-Frog’, which has a very similar plot, but I don’t know of any animated versions, sorry!

  9. So there was this Asian movie I watched when I was about maybe 8 or 9 so it was at the earliest made in 2005. All I remember is this guy being in love with this girl who he called butterfly. He even got a butterfly tattoed really big on his chest. I remember her being in what I think was like a brothel and getting killed by the guys enemy because he wanted her for himself or he was just jealous. At the time the hero in the story was mad at her I think or just couldn’t reach her in time. Anyway he came too late and I think it was raining and she had blood on the side of her lip and he held her as she died. I just don’t remember the name of that movie. Any ideas?

  10. Hi! So a few years ago i saw this movie about a woman and two men i think, they kind of reminded me of vikings. I Believe they were speaking norwegian or something close to that. They were wandering in the forest and they find a girl and take care of her as if she was one of them. Later on there’s a boy involved and i think he tries to escape with her but this woman and the two men keeps hunting them, wanting to kill they boy for taking the girl. Soon they give up and this woman tells the two men to kill both the girl and the boy.

  11. I believe this movie was a version of phantom of the opera. A woman who was having an affair with a man found ut she was pregnant. She tried to kill herself by walking into the ocean but was saved. Then a gypsy like woman gave her poison to drink the baby came out deformed. Taken place in europe in the late 1800 or early 1900 the women wore long full skirts. Black and white movie…

  12. The Michael Douglas one is an episode of Night Visions. It wasn’t Michael Douglas though. It was Jeff Pullman. The short I think was called Oasis or window in the desert.

    Anyone remember a movie where 3 souls are locked in a house waiting for the afterlife? I remember they all had just died and were spending their last few hours in a house waiting for a portal to open into Heaven.

  13. Hi, i remember a movie about a young boy who had a weird anti-nazi/communist father. Also, the boy had a crush on a girl, and on their first date the boy brings the girl home and his father makes them goulash. At the and of the movie they find out that their neighbour was a nazi/communist who was gathering information and was ready to kill them. I don’t really remember the end of the movie, but i know that their neighbour came to their house trying to kill the father and the boy.
    Can you please help me with the film’s title?
    P.S.: The plot is set in the 80s/90s(i’m not sure) and the father worked as a comedy actor on tv

  14. So there’s this one movie and it’s animated. It is from the early 90’s or 2000’s. Somewhere around there I think. Anyways the only thing I remember from it was there was this dude that was messing with people’s dreams. I can’t remember if it was a dude or multiple monsters or something. I think I remember this scene where the things or whatever get inside of this girls dreams. Then she wakes up the next day and is really scared. She lives in this palace thing I think.

  18. I watched this animated movie years ago. I can’t remember the name. I don’t remember what it was all about, so bare with me. All I know is that its a dvd. A black case I think with a girl on it with white hair. It was a animated movie about these people/robots/aliens (humanoid) they looked like regular people but werent. It had some erotic/sexual parts in it. I don’t think they could provide for themselves either. They used machines to live. (i think) Its an animated movie but doesn’t have crappy picture. It was in color. However I don’t think it was in English. I think this movie starts with a G and only has one word for the title. Please help.

  19. i disagree with the possible movie of mystery 62. Storm of the Century was not made in the 80s, I remember watching the mini series on television. also, that is not the plot to Storm. I can with almost 100% it is NOT SoftheC

  20. a movie filmed in the 1990’s maybe early 2000’s that takes place around the medieval times where a young brother and sister are separated in order to save their lives, and then when they’re older they take part in a ceremory where they both wear masks and had their bodies painted and have to sleep together, the sister ends up becoming pregnant and when she is reunited with her brother her brother tells her about how he was in love with a girl he slept with but since they had both wore masks he didnt know who they girl was but wanted to somehow find her (he also about to get married to another woman) after hearing that the sister then realizes her younger brother is the father of their unborn child and then tries to kill the baby

  21. I watched a movie on MM or Mnet, cannot remember actually and it was an old XXX movie.
    The first scene is where a woman is goin to bed and is wearing a wonderful necklace, she goes to bed naked and a burglar enters the house to steal but finds this beautiful woman sleeping and gets a change to …. Well you know how this goes. It was a complete movie. I have been looking for this for a long time.
    Will really appreciate your reply. thanks.

  22. I watched a movie where 15 year old daughter of a police officer gets kidnapped by an insane man who holds captive a number of other girls to get them pregnant. The 15 year old is already pregnant when she gets kidnapped (she actually meets her boyfriend to tell him about the baby), and she uses that to fake pregnancy test for another girl which saves that other girls life, because the insane man punishes girls who can not breed for him… That is all I remember. Any idea? Thanks.

  23. I saw a scene from a (70s ?) movie where a young couple are about to have sex on a water bed in the back of a van (in the middle of a parking lot). All of a sudden a big burly biker opens the rear doors, shoots the water bed with a (mini crossbow?) causing it to spill out; and drags the naked girl away. I saw it when I was young and never learned what the title was, I wonder why ;)

  24. I have 4 movies Im trying ti find the title to.
    1) 70’s or early 80’s a teenage girl who is either just rebellious or a runaway. The part I do remember is she gets picked up by a man who is older then her. He kidnaps her shortly drives her to a secluded area where he removes her underwear (she is wearing a skirt) he keeps his clothes on never whips it out, but oddly dry humps/rapes her on the hood of his car. He then later drops her off back in town.
    2) 80’s film about a boy who discovers an alien spaceship through the sewers in his small town where slowly the aliens begin to take over the adults (his teacher is the 1st) he finds out that the people the aliens got to have band aids on the back of their necks where there is a small hole containing a glowing ball.
    3)80’s film again- a group of college students meet up with their college professor in a house where they all sit around telling scary stories. the movie has cut scenes that goes to each storytellers scary story. In the meantime somebody starts killing off the students 1 by 1.
    4) movie late 90’s or early 2000. Two teenagers a boy and a girl meet and fall in love but they have a delinquent pasts, they both had there top front teeth knocked out, and wear a partial. I believe the boy used to fight a lot and the girl was drinking and driving. The boy goes into the military and is on leave when they meet or is about to join. there is a possibility that they were already together have drunk driving accident after a night of partying(that knocks their teeth out) and their parents are trying to keep them apart by sending her away and him to the military.
    So if anybody can help me with this it would be appreciated, thanks.

  25. I remember a movie where there is a world in the sky and the rich people live on it and they have healing machines on the island. The poor live on the other island… a poor man takes his daughter, who is dying, to the world above to cure her.

  26. I remember watching this movie at my grandmother’s house. It was before the year 2001. All I remember was this lady stated talking to some lady in the bathroom and next thing you know she was smashing her head in the mirror. Can anyone help me find it?

  27. There was a movie that I think may have been a horror movie. I watched it when I was 4 years old and PBS back then was like HBO is now lol So this movie was made in the early 70’s. There was a man and he walks up to a woman at the end of the driveway. (I want to say that she was bbq’ing) But before he walks up to her, he puts what looks like sunny side up eggs on his eyes. They may have been plastic but it gave the illusion that his eyes were boiled and gross. When the lady turns around, she’s startled and faints. He catches her and takes her inside and removes her underwear. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

  28. I saw this movie in the early nineties, so it would be no more recent than 95ish. It was probably made in the late 80s or early 90s.
    It was set in the future, or on/in another planet/dimension. It was about a boy who lived with his family, maybe just his mother (?), in a house next to a cliff edge that fell away to darkness. I can’t remember if there was something to be scared of down in the dark, but the edge was the key part of the film. I thought it was called something like Living on the Edge or Life on the Edge or something similar but I can’t find anything with a name like that that fits the description. It might not even have been a full length film, maybe an episode on a tv show or something?
    Other than that, I remember that it was very dark, like perhaps it was always night in the world they lived in, and their house was a bit weird and futuristic with gadgets and technology… maybe. I might be making that bit up. But the main thing was the presence of this edge to oblivion!
    Any thoughts? I’m pretty sure it was American, but I can’t remember any actors of note in it. Any ideas appreciated!

  29. Movie #64 is definitely about the Anne Scripps murder. It has 2 titles on imdb. One is Daughters, and the other is Our Mother’s Murder. It’s based upon the true story of the murder of an heiress.

  30. I’m looking for a movie that I saw part of as a teen back in the 1970s. That was before cable and VCRs, and we just had 3 channels. The local station cut in during the movie and cut if off due to inappropriate material, so of course that made me want to watch it more. I do remember the name of the movie was The Fortress, and I’ve been searching imdb and other places. I believe it was a foreign movie dubbed, and possibly the main guy in the movie had either a missing or deformed ear. If anyone knows anything about this movie I am interested in locating it.
