What Was That Weird Movie?

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. I can’t find my previous post?! I failed to see the option to receive notifications. A while back I posted (between August and September) and it disappeared after a couple of weeks. Thought maybe it was taken down and put on the new page, but I can’t find it there either.
    I was trying to find the name of a b&w movie in which a Pinkerton type cop poses as a mechanic and “infiltrates” a dinner party. The hosts don’t know anything about it until the guests show up.
    There is some kind of dangerous mineral or something that has been stolen, and the Pinkerton is out investigating it.
    The cars of all the guests get disabled by the killer, and a lady gets murdered out in some woods near a swamp or bog.
    The title was something cheesy/overdramatic. It’s not much, but if you can please help! And if you come across my previous inquiry somewhere and it has an answer please help me find that, because it has a better description I just can’t remember how I explained it last time!
    Thank you for any help!!!

  15. I was trying to find the name of a movie about this kid at a pool at a hotel I think…he was roaming around and saw one of the doors of the hotel cracked and he went in and found a body…and I think the bad guys eventually found out he saw the body and was after him…and I also remember luring them to a baseball field…its been a long time since I saw this movie

  16. What is the movie when theres people stuck on an island and a girl has hairy armpits and another girl sticks a pill in her ass

  17. The movie had a girl who was living with a family. She was seducing the old guy by like leaving the bathroom door open and stuff. I’ll never forget the movie because when they eventually had sex and it was on a washing machine. I believe the washing machine was outside? It was so weird but I hate that I can’t remember what it was called.

    I’ll be shocked if you can figure this out but I saw this movie on IFC one night, years ago.

  18. Sounds like Taking Lives with Angelina Jolie and Ethan Hawke; although I don’t remember any cannibalism, just plain serial killer murder :)

    Besides the cannibalism, it’s a perfect match for Taking Lives, especially the part about the fake pregnant belly.

  19. So, here goes. I have no idea what the name of this movie is, or when it came out. However, I remember watching it when I was no older than 5, which was in 1998. Here’s everything I remember:

    This little boy’s parents leave him with this old man, (presumably his grandfather), because they have to go somewhere. So, everything is fine at first, but then the next thing I remember is the boy walking in the bedroom. He walks in to find his parents and the old man in bed, but you can only see their heads. They tell the boy to join them, or something to that effect. He pulls the blanket down only to realize they are all conjoined by this monster body. I don’t know if the monster ate them, or if they just somehow managed to become a monster. Any guesses would be super helpful, thanks!

  20. Remember that movie where the guy tortures this girl and cuts off her fingers and then sets her free and she pays him fir the service. Then he ends up in this weird dimension. I have been rackin my brain for 3 years trying to remember

  21. There was a scene where this mutated giant man in a hospital bed with all arms and legs in slings. The man in the bed is screaming and thrashing around, while his limbs grow longer. I saw just that part on t.v. late at night, and I have been wondering what it was for years.

  22. I am looking for an old sci fi movie I remember when I was a boy probably from the late 70`s! All I can remember is that A guy and a girl was going to this planet, in a big bubble and when they made there way in there was this biker gang that causing havoc and they stretched a metal cable across the road and cut some of there heads off?
