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. Very weird movie that I saw a very long time ago but it is driving me insane because I can not remember the name so please help!! Okay so theres a group of friends who decide to go out and end up at this weird horrow freak club. If I am not mistaking one the friends sister had actually “ran off” from home but turns out she was killed by the people from the club. What they would do is kill people and have shows of them dancing by electrifying them. So when the group of friends where at this club they actually saw the sister who they thoughy had ran off on the stage being electrefied. This pretty much sums it up and is all I remember.

  2. Looking for a movie I saw in the mid 1970s as a kid at the Drive In. We didn’t stay to see the entire flick because it wasn’t good. I remember that it took place in the woods and the ghost/spirit looked like an upside down string mop. There may have been Native Americans or some type of tribe in it. I’ve been trying to find this movie for decades. Please help!

  3. I watched a movie where there was a woman with pig snout who turns to a very beautiful woman after she’s kissed and wizard kills a witch with sword

  4. I am looking for a movie where humans are invaded by aliens from the late 70s early 80s. There are scenes I remember of a teacher infected, and humans peeled their faces off. Any ideas?

    1. Maybe “V” the TV movie and series? There were aliens who came in peace and looked human, but their skin peeled away to reveal lizard skin. Really messed me up as a kid. They tried a new series in 2009, but it was awful.

  5. I’m looking for a movie I can’t seem to remember it fully in the beginning the have an old black man playing the saxophone.

He later takes the head set off and tell people that they don’t have to wear them but then he gets shot.
    I know I’m all over the place but please help my I think the movie is from the early 80’s or late 90’s

In a fight scene she got shot in the stomach, & she also had a daughter I think it was her child at least, & they got locked in like a freezer or something & she used the daughters baby that like peed or something to get out.

They are trying to get to a tower because of some sort of signal, and one of the girls gets stuck by her ankle and killed.

  20. I’m looking for a (I believe a German) film in which a father does all he can to bring her daughter who’s been in coma after an accident to normal life. All I can remember is that he even takes his daughter to another country (which I think was Switzerland) in order to bring her to normal life again.
    Does anybody know the film’s name?

  21. who will help me remember the title of an Indian movie that I watched on TV a couple of times between 2001-2003. It was about an honest police inspector brutally killed by 5 corrupt rich men for investigating them. His wife forced to take poison gave birth to twin boys, one a dwarf, but were separated when the house was set on fire. The dwarf worked in a circus and embarked on revenging his father’s murder and along the way met his twin brother, a mechanic brought up by another couple. Their names were Raja and Apu. police often mistakenly arrested the big twin for crimes committed by his short brother. A nice drama that I miss watching. HELP ME FIND IT

  22. I saw this movie in about 2009 or 2010 and this black kid and his dad broke into a house then the couple who lived there came home and they caught the dad so they killed, cut, and ate him and also fed him to people kept as slaves or something but the kid got stuck in the house and met another really skinny kid then they escaped and the black kid came back and used a metal stick to beat the couple for killing his dad

  23. I’m not sure the name of this movie or the actors. I just remember a few scenes. All of the car suddenly stopped working and giant spider looking robots began to take over. The town of people are walking and sealing safety. The movie focused on a specific family. Father, daughter, and a son. The father and the son didn’t see eye to eye. Eventually the son got lost. At the end of the movie, they all meet back up. Can someone please help me with this.

  25. There was a movie in the late 70’s early 80’s where there are hostages taken in what I believe was a hotel. The hostage taker asks for guns and coveralls with dark shield helmets for everyone including himself and they all appear to look the same while they’re coming out to board a helicopter (I think) and that’s where the drama ends . I saw it when I was younger and don’t know It was a movie or an episode of something. Does anyone recall this movie ??

  26. Can’t for the life of me remember this movie: no big name actors, low budget, perhaps indie film.

    Movie is set in Lousinana or Mississippi during the 70s-80s.
    Beginning shows 2 guys(friends, 30s) outside talking about growing weed to make money because they are broke and do not work..
    At some point they encounter a young girl (20s), red headed I believe and one of the guys end ups tying her up or locking her in the old house they live in..(wooden house on blocks)

    The guys friend devises a plan to get his friend drunk and kill him because he doesn’t want the girl to be hurt and secretly likes her.
    Get his friend drunk, walks him deep into the swamp and think he drowns him.
    He tells the girl what he did and now wants to be friends with her and she becomes worried because he starts acting weird.
    Meanwhile she’s whoring herself to some “rich” guy across town. This guy wears pleated pants, hat and button ups the entire time.
    She asked him to help her with the now “weird” friend but soon discovers the “rich”guy is far worse.
    Movie ends with weird guy somehow saving her from rich guy.
    It’s a muggy rainy day and she’s holding him tight so happy that he saved her(realizing and revealing that he wasn’t so weird after all).

  27. I saw this movie long time ago and i cant remember the name of it. Its about this girl who was locked in a cage by her grandfather because he thought she killed his own daughter when she was giving birth to her , and then the young girl was found by a woman acter a flood happened and she takes and tries to help her but the girl couldnt speak because she was afraid from her grandfather and then when he finds his granddaughter alive he wanted her back but the woman knew that there was something that kept this young girl silent for so many . So in the end the girl speaks out and tells the truth and lives with the woman who saved her . I really if anyone can tell me whats the name of that movie ☺️
