What Was That Weird Movie? (not actively maintained)

UPDATE 1/8/2015: I Remember This Movie, an entire website dedicated to solving mystery movies, is now open! Please move all your movie questions there. Comments will be left open here for the time being, and we will not stop anyone from posting here. However, we are removing the list of unsolved movies, since it makes no sense for people to keep guessing about movies questions that were asked years ago. Thanks a lot, this page has brought us a lot of traffic over the years—which is precisely why we thought the concept deserved its own site.

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 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.

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!

  1. looking for a movie i saw as a youngster in the mid 90’s about a masked hero who fights and is trying to collect 3 magical skulls, that when used together are really powerful or something. I remember these skulls being purple, green, and gold? I would love to re-watch this someday, i really loved it as a kid.

  2. My husband and I are trying to figure out a movie we watched as kids. It has an all black car, with pitch black tinted Windows, that kidnaps people. The beginning shows a child walking a dirt road/lane from school and the car pulls up and kidnaps her. You never see the driver, even when he pulls over, he never gets out the door just opens and the victim is pulled inside. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, as its been bugging for months trying to figure out what it is.

  3. What is the name of the movie? It was in the 80s. I remember these puppets I believe are traveling from planet to planet and each planet leaves a shape. They stop at a planet that this man has many of everything. Exp. thousands of basketballs or tennis balls. He sings a song “I want it all”. The get all their shapes and build a rocket ship. Then they go to the moon which there is a man made out of the moon.

    1. Omg never mind I found it, it’s called coming soon!!
      I was way off she dies while making the movie and then goes after everybody that watches it

  8. Hi, can anyone help? I’m looking for a movie I remember watching when I was a kid. Well brief scenes I think I remember so a group of friends go out and a girl gets stabbed? By a guy. Accidentally I think.

    Well they help bury her and hide the murder.
    Next scene I remember is that one of the boys does his laundry, he forgets his sock which is covered in blood. His mum is like ‘ is he ok?’ He Doesn’t do laundry etc.’ And that’s all I remember.

    Its bugging me

  9. This is a weird movie that I have searched and searched for. From the 90’s maybe? Astronauts go into space and this gel type alien gets on board and causes you to have sex/orgasm until you die. It jumps from person to person and eventually goes to earth. I can’t remember how the movie ended, but it was an x-rated, after dark film that may have been on Cinemax, HBO, or showtime. It’s a long shot in the dark to find someone else who has seen the same movie or even knows what movie I’m talking about since I don’t have many details.

  10. Two teenagers kidnap a 30 yo woman for a fun. One of the boy falls in love with a hostage and rescues her, thay have a sex. Related story movie names.

  11. About 20 years ago I caught a scene of a movie and I’ve been trying to figure out what the movie was ever since!

    Had to be a late 80’s/early 90’s movie. The scene was a woman with short brown hair, being held down by some men and another man was painting something on her stomach, like a word or symbol. It looked like blood or dark paint. And she was struggling to get up.
    Anyone know by chance?

  12. I remember this one movie I watched when I was younger. I think it was older than 2010.

    So, I can barely remember the details but this one girl meets an adult guy (I think) in a sort of black and white world. Everything around them was white but the buildings were black I think, but not in a realistic way.

    I remember another scene were the girl is shrunk and is floating in a wall and the walls of the room had black writing all over them. The writing were floating because the walls were invisible and the background was black like they filmed it with a white screen. So the young girl sees a giant teenager crying. Maybe it’s a sister or older version of her? Everybody in the movie wore black clothes I think.

    The young girl and guy have this enemy who was a queen maybe? She owned a clock tower and somehow got the girl brainwashed. The brainwashed girl met the guy again and she was wearing a black dress. The guy tried getting her memories back by juggling (I think he was a joker?) The girl didn’t remember him then but started to.

    They went inside the clock tower and I think destroyed it?

  13. I’m trying to find this movie so I can buy it. It was a black and white film. The characters all spoke with a British accent. Characters wore period clothing where the women wore long poofy dresses and carried fans and the men wore powdered wigs. The main character somehow goes back to the past and claims he is a cousin and is well loved by everyone until he scares everyone by stating he knows what will happen to each one then is shunned by everyone except for one woman who believes his story. I think she was doomed to die but he fell in love with her before it happened

  14. OKAY. I have been looking for a movie I watched when I was little, I can’t remember the year it was made, but it was pretty old I guess.

  15. Chasing the title over a movie I saw parts of when I was a kid, would be early 90’s.

    Scene: two males have a female and her baby. I think they were in the woods or something similiar. The woman is lying down crying and one of the males has a machete or large knife and is running it along her belly before stabbing her. I think they leave with the baby after.

  16. I saw a movie on Showtime in the 90’s I think it was a womans prison movie. Two women are kissing and one of them pulls the needle hair pin out of the others hair and stabs her in the eye. I can’t remember the name of the movie

The movie was an unheard of fantasy film that starts out with a boy a swing and kind of staring at the ground when he finds a crystal or stone.
