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.


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.


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.


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.


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:


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.


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.


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”


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.


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:


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.


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.


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?


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/


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.


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).


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.


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:


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


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.


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!


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.”


…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.


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.


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.


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.


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.”


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.”


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.”


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.


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.


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.


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:


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:


…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.


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.


…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.


…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:


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.


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:


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.


…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.


…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.”


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:


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.


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:


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:


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:


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:


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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).


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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/


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/


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.


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/.”


…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.


…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.


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).


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…


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.


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.


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.


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:


…a scary movie but in it the mother forces her two children to have sex with each other.

From JC: horror movie, kids, snowy forest, slide.


…kids who get taken end up trapped in a snowy forest and then all the kids escape by going down the slide..

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


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.


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.


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.


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. I saw this one movie was i was a kid, way before the 2000’s. This movie has to be at least made before 1995 or so, maybe.
    In this movie, from what i can remember, this women somehow gets this alien inside her and it begins talking to her.
    In one scene, i think, she is driving on this desolate, tree lined road and the alien is talking to her again and i think maybe she drives into some water, i think:/

    1. portrays a alien impregnated woman along with many more women.The aliens are dying need new blood and babies by the thousands.

    2. Hey, I found this thread looking for the title for this movie and I remembered it while I was searching. Is this the one you’re looking for? The woman is impregnated by an alien who craves the ocean, she slowly becomes one with the alien baby and carried out it’s wishes. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096871/

  2. I just remembered a scene saw once I believe it to be a sci fi movie and I’m not entirely positive on the details I think it was when I was younger in the90’s I remember Thierry being tied or wrappedup by aliensand they were like dissecting him or something and idk If I’m remembering this right but at one point Its first person view fromthe person tied or wrapped up and I think the alien cut upon his eye and everything got milky BUT it could have also beenthat he was completely wrapped up and they were cutting the wrapping from his face but I remember it being first person view

    1. @zin ~ There is a scene very much like that in this film:
      A Fire from the Sky (1993)
      IMDb synopsis:
      A group of men arrive back in town claiming that their friend was abducted by aliens. Nobody believes them, and, despite a lack of motive and no evidence of foul play, their friend’s disappearance is treated as murder. … Eventually, the logger returns, naked and babbling about alien abductors. The next section of the film take us into the mind of the logger to recreate what he thinks happened to him.


  3. Hi, I hope you can help me. This is a movie about a pretty girl and her group of friends- teenagers (high school maybe) who went to this house in a barn or somewhere far for the weekend (i think). Suddenly, one by one they start dying. It ended with the audience finding out that the killer was actually a nerdy boy from their school but the twist was he did it for the pretty girl. She and the nerd planned the killing together. There was scene where he kissed her but the ending was she shot him in an open barn. The title of the movie was I think the name of the girl but im not so sure.

  4. It was an episode or a movie where there was this doll house in which the dolls were breathing and living. The mom was cooking or cleaning. The kids were playing. And the dad was doing something and its not from the series are you afraid of the dark

    1. thank you I looked that up and that’s it! thank you so much Ive been looking for it for so many years and people keep telling me I was looking for the dark crystal lol

  5. I saw this movie around 2000.. all I can remember is that at the end a man comes to the edge of ocean and discovers that he can’t go further and than he sees a door, so he goes in and finds out that his life was just a movie.. Anyone has a clue what movie is that?

  6. I remember seeing an animated film in in the early to mid 90’s where the main character was either pre-teen or early teens. I remember it being somewhat like Cinderella where she was treated poorly and made to do all the cleaning and chores etc. She has to clean the kitchen this one night but she falls asleep before she could finish and she wakes up to find it’s been done for her. Unfortunately I can’t remember whether animals were doing it or perhaps a fairy. Either the girl was making wishes at a wishing well or she was leaving stuff out as payment for the cleaning to be done for her. Sorry I don’t have more to go on, the memories are vague. My sister remembers seeing something like that too but we just can’t remember it properly.

  7. Hi guys, I was hoping someone could help me figure out this movie. It was really odd, and I have vague memories of it from when I was a child. I saw it probably a good 12 – 16 years ago (but, it was on a VHS of movies my grandfather copied for me, so who knows how long ago it ACTUALLY was.)

    I only remember one man actually being on camera the entire time. There was possibly a Narrator person that he talked to, however. It was an older guy (like i’d say mid 20s?) who was playing a teenager, if I recall. He was in a room that was basically white, with I believe drawn on background (fake mirrors, etc). He had a really vivid imagination, and he would sing songs about like, giants and their big smelly feet. (This would then cue a giant foot, kinda like monty python). At one point his room turns into a jungle, along with puppets.

  8. Hello!

    So i saw this Indian movie (thriller, mystery) sometime within 2002-2006. it was about a very intelligent female cop who had been in charge of some murder cases committed by an equally intelligent serial killer who had obsessions with time(killed every 6th hour), eye resolutions(of -1 and black glass frames), water ice (his weapon; hard to trace, no finger prints) and intelligent people(absolutely good at certain areas of their careers/lives). this cop got so much obsessed with the case, found the killers’ pattern and was able to predict the next victim (or not), but forgot about her daughter and by the time she realized, it was already late.

    It was such a brilliant movie (and non-“indianish”), would love to see it again. Does anyone by any chance know it??? :) I would be very happy.

  9. US film, c. 1940-50s, maybe 60s. Black and White.
    Fantasy/Detective. Bogart/Topper cross – detective is killed in beginning and returns as a dog (bull terrier) to solve his own murder. Any info, name, etc appreciated.

  10. Found it – got the plot slightly wrong. It’s You Never Know / You Never Can Tell (original title)
    One of the last of the “screwball comedies.” Charming, rather than laugh-out-loud funny. A special treat for animal lovers. Silly, but played straight, this is one of those snuggle-by-the-fire-with-a-cup-of-cocoa (and your dog/s) films. Dick Powell returns to earth to sniff out his murderer, and he’ll be dog-goned if he’ll let the fellow get away

  11. I’m guessing this is probably a children’s movie, but do you know of a movie with a scen of a little boy in his bed that meets a giant monster in dream? Shows the boy something magical in its claws but pulls away as the boy reaches for it, frightening the boy. Monster becomes sad as soon as the boy hads under the covers and pets the boy woth his giant hand. Boy wakes up and comes from under the covers to see a dog at the end of the bed. Would you by any chance know that movie? I’ve been wondering what it was ever since I saw glimpse of it on TV once as a child and it’s been nagging at the back of my mind ever since.

    1. OMG THIS MOVIE I REMEMBER IT TOO! I just don’t remember the name! And it was this cute little terrier sort of dog omg.

  12. I saw this weired movie in late 70’s. This movie is in the medevil times. The only thing I can remember is the main charater is coming to town to find a job, he is surprised to find his hero on the side of the road cuting off parts of his body for money. It is bothers me that I cannot remember this movie.

    1. You have already asked this and it was answered on the previous page.

      I saw this movies in the 80′s. It was a wierd movie during the medeval time. The only scene that I can remember is when the main star’s mentor is broke and he makes his money by cutting off parts of his legs for money. It is a very intersting and weird.

      That would be Jabberwocky.


  13. Hi,
    I’ve been looking for this one movie for a long time. The one clear scene I remember shows a boy and a girl, both probably 13 or 14, sitting in a tree house, and they just starting dating or crushing on one another. I think the boy has a little wild looking, with messy dark hair, and the girl was all goody two shoes, with blonde hair. I remember the boy trying to look down the girl’s shirt, to which she says, “I thought you were different!” and jumps up, and the boy replies “I am different!”. Then the girl yells “You know what I mean!” and runs off.

    Do you know what movie this came from? Thanks.

  14. I’m trying to find a early 1970’s film that was probably a fantasy. All i can remember is a youth or young man on a journey or quest. i remember him getting trapped in a well? and being helped by a father time figure. I’m beginning to think i dreamed the whole thing, but I saw it at the movies.

  15. Okay, heres another one. 1970’s horror film that had a scene where there is a motorcycle driven by a skeleton. I remember that barf bags were handed out before the show.

  16. Saw this movie in the early 90’s on tv (maybe on usa?). I remember a women sees an accidemt at the end of the street. She walks down the street with a cup of coffee. There is an ambulancr and medics all around, but when she gets there, she is also the one getting ready to be put into the ambulance. She drps the cup and it breaks on the ground, but i dont think they can see her.

  17. There are two movies I want to see again I can’t find them (despite several internet searches).

    Movie 1: Two black guys in a cinema watching movies and making funny comments. Can’t remember who’s in it. Was probably made in the mid/late 80’s or early nineties. Kind of an anti’blaxploitaton/comedy movie.

    Movie 2: Black dude gets convicted of murders. A lawyer believes he is innocent. He fights tooth and nail to win the appeal and the black guy goes free. The lawyer realises his mistake after he then goes on to murder people. Made in early 90’s (probably).

    An answer to one of those would be great. Two would be fantabulous (if it’s allowed…sorry if it isn’t)

    1. Movie #1 sounds like the ten-minute-long “Sneakin’ Into Movies” segment of HOLLYWOOD SHUFFLE, a 1986(?) media satire about the lack of decent movie roles for black actors not named Eddie Murphy.

  18. 1996 horror movie where these scientists bring this guy back to life in this bunker type place. he pulls his hair out and ears off and i think a spike comes out his tongue. he chases and tries to kill them. i rememder a scene where he is sneaking up on some one making popcorn and when the microwave buzzer goes off the sound makes him freak out!!!

  19. Looking for an old horror movie, I believe it was from the 80s. I can only remember the beginning. I remember these 2 murder scenes. The first one occurs at night when a woman leaves a cab she is attacked by something and then in the morning she is found hanging from a bridge and hit by a tourist boat. The second murder is a injured man half body in the water and crying for help. He is then dragged in the water. I thought it would have been maybe c.h.u.d, scared to death or split second but it wasn’t those. Any ideas?


  20. looking for a movie i which father f***s his own daughter….and another girl lives in his house in a boys clothes and she plays the role of dumb..and at the end both the girls kills the father……

  21. When I was a kid I saw this weird movie about these aliens (i think) that were like blue and they just went around and had sex with humans and it turned them into aliens as well. the one scene, not sure if it was in the beginning or not, but it was of this chick on a balcony with her shirt open. i think it made like an electricity sound when they had sex, but i’m not sure…it was definitely weird, i watched it in either 1987 or 1988 on like HBO or Showtime.

  22. Maybe a late 90’s or early 2000’s movie, but what I can remember is that in the movie they were making a movie, on of the main characters was a ladies man but it when ever he was going to have sex with a girl he had to use pickles because his dad cut off his man parts because his dad wanted a girl. Also in the movie this crazy fat guy was running around with a cast on his head and suddenly gets stopped by some lady and she starts giving him oral. was very hilarious it came on late at night on cinemax i beleive

  23. Looking for a movie I watched on Hulu a few years ago. All I remember is that the beginning started with this girl who goes to some city (maybe chicago or new york) to live with a relative (I think it was her cousin- a girl) and she gets to her apartment and the girl isn’t there. so she waits outside the apartment and then something happens and she leaves. Then later on in the movie some guy becomes involved who is like looking out for her – I think he was a cop or something like that. and she finds this guy who is involved with prostitutes or sex trafficking or something and he’s trying to get her to get involved. I remember this scene where they are laying on a couch in a basement and he’s about to have sex with her when the cop guy comes down and drags her out of there and says he cares about her.
    It was from I want to say maybe early to mid 2000’s.
    If anyone knows that’d be awesome..it’s been bugging me.

  24. i watched this movie very long bak, where in a family plans to visit another country for christmas eve. On the day of departure they hurry like nothing to the airport and a small boy from their house misses them some where near departure gate. That small boy boards a wrong flight following a man who wears a same coat like his father. The security people also overlook him cuz that was the last announcement. After getting down in a wrong country the boy befriends a teenage girl who works some where in a mall or something. He celebrates christmas along with that girl. That night they walk down the street on the christmas eve talking about each other.
    Thats it.. i only remember these scenes.. some one please tell me wt movie is it. Its pondering me since many days. kinda keeping me awake.

  25. Ok, I saw this movie when I was very young. It starts out as a couple of robots that are trying to get away from some bad guys but then they are caught and put into the slave trade and end up working for some farmers. They try to escape and somehow they end up with some crazy religious fanatic. The rest of the movie is just a long indoctrination into this bizarre religon. Any ideas? Please “What was that weird movie?” you are my only hope.

  26. I tried to find out what this movie was,but to no avail.I saw it sometime in like 2004-2006,the scene had good special effects,so I appreciate it as being eraly 2000’s.It reminded me of Lord of the Rings.The only scene I remember is a boy/young male that fights against evil,but he gets possessed by it,his eyes glowed blue,the scene happens when he’s almost drowning in what seems like a vast lake.The evil being looked like Nasguls from Lord Of the Rings.I can’t say if a ring was involved or not for sure,but the entire scene seemed very LOTRish.I also seem to remember that he was in a sack (like Conte of Monte Cristo)and that’s why he couldn’t swim,but I’m not entirely sure.
    I would be very grateful if someone can pinpoint what this movie is called,thank you in advance ^^

  27. I hope I’m not being redundant, but movie 116 (pre-1968, ghosts in a castle that need a sacrifice every year, fence impaling) is almost certainly 1964’s CASTLE OF BLOOD. The IMDB page for it is here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057993/ and I’m gonna go pat myself on the back for knowing that one.

  28. Trying to find this movie. Either only saw this scene and its stuck with me, or don’t remember the whole thing. I think it was sort of an Alien rip off, and in the scene I remember, there was this guy on the floor shaking, and out pops a xenomorph like tail from his backside. Like the full size alien was hatching from the person right there. Honestly can’t remember anymore. It’s killing me.

  29. I didn’t watch this movie in person but a friend asked the name of it, and I have no clue. I will write exactly as he summarized. I searched for it with all possible keywords but came up with no results, I will be more than happy if you can name it.
    Here it is:
    It’s kind of ancient or medieval age movie with swordplay, in the beginning there is a young/little girl that travels with an old man in a horse and carriage. A man cuts their way, he has a ring, he is enchanted/or in possession of magic. Another man with a long hair comes and saves them from the man with the ring and cuts off his arm. The girl and old man continues on their travel. Long haired man (LHM) comes to a town and sees the princess and understands that the princess is indeed the girl that he saves. The town is also enchanted. They want to move the princess and choose LHM to take her to a safe place. They start their journey, in the very first stop they come across a small lake and a gang. The gang leader is an overweight woman. They (the gang) throw a woman and her child to the lake with accusation of witchcraft, but LHM saves them. At the night time somebody kidnaps the princess. LHM goes on his way, he ends up in misty ruins and fights with ghosts. In the finale, they take the princess to a mountain, they need her blood to revive a creature, they also place a tablet somewhere. LHM comes and fights with them, the sky lightens up, he gets shot but the gods grant his life back to him. Happy ending.
    I tried to translate what he wrote and have no further info, so please if it reminds you something write to me.

  30. I watched this movie about two years ago but can’t figure it out. All i remember is this guy who is running away from these bad guys and finds himself being helped by some computer geeks who are sending signs through his brain to help him and tell him where to go and what to do, while he’s trying to get away from these people.

  31. I saw this horror(maybe)movie when I was a kid. All I remenber is that at the of the movie some of the moviecharacters saw yellow eyes down the basement. Then the eyes were closed and cat runs out of the basement. The character was reliefed and walks away, but those eyes appear again sssspoookuy mm-mm-music). The end. Does no one know the name of the movie? I’d be excited to see that one again.

  32. I watched this one movie and can’t remember what it was, all i can remember was there was this little boy and he ran away from his adoptive parents and went to find his real parents who worked at a circus but they didn’t want him. then they were in this room and his mom went up on this swing like thing and smoke entered the room as his mom went up away from, That’s pretty much all i can remember.

  33. I saw a horror movie around mid 90’s or so, but I’m betting it wasn’t new then from the looks of it. It was a “classic” setup with 4-6? teens I believe going to some cabin for fun. The only parts I can remember clearly after that is there were some problems, including plumbing, which a Man tried to fix. While laying under the sink, the claymation enemies (little “men” only an inch or so high with weapons, spears maybe) attacked him and I think used rope to tie him down? This is the only movie that ever made me scared of the dark, and I’d LOVE to go back and see it again.

  34. i saw this movie about 7-10 years ago, and i don’t know it’s name or how to search for it. it is about a red-curly-haired girl that was stalked/followed by a man. at a moment she escapes by entering in a shop where she meets a young man, and they have a one night stand. at this point there’s an erotic scene (but not explicit) with her lowering on his face for an oral job. during that night the stalker enters the house, but the girl kills him by hitting him in the head with a golf club. when she wakes up in the morning she realizes that she actually killed the young man, but ignores the fact and leaves the house like it never happened. towards the end of the movie she gets back home, where the dead body started to stink. while she rolls the body in a carpet to make it stink less, the stalker enters the house. she tries desperately to escape him, but eventually gets caught and dragged on the balcony, where he wants to hang her with an electric power cord. during this final scene it is revealed that it was herself doing the hanging, and the stalker was imaginary.

    so, anybody has any hints? the movie was well played, it didn’t have a b-movie feel to it, but still the looks of a cult movie.

  35. Sorry, got the dates wrong in previous post.

    Approx 1967-68. Film had a child chost named Melissa (possibly Melissa Gray). I think the film was British and black and white.

  36. Late 60s or early 70s, scifi/surreal/fantasy; somebody at a machine that looks like a drill press, working on a butterfly; doesn’t really do much to operate the machine, but steps out and back, and slowly waves arms, in a sort of dance. Not much dialog; weird sound effects.

  37. 1984 or so, medieval movie:

    Invading knights/soldiers/enemies approach and interrogate fellow:
    “They went south. Toward Aquitaine.”
    “Then we go north!”
    (aside) “See? It’s always best to tell the truth.”

    “Where did she go?”
    “She flew away.”
    “[something like] You’re lying!”
    “No, it’s true, she flew away.”

  38. Trying to find out the name of a tv movie watched during the 80’s. May have been an after school special? It was about a older teen that left/ranaway from home and she was harrased and helped by a young cop. They eventualy fell in love by end of the movie. Was a cute love story but the title was wierd. Any help would be great and solve a mystery for my sister and me.

  39. when i was like 10 i saw a fantasy movie about a girl and a boy they love each other and they meet again years later in dreams with help by magic and then every time they sleep they wish to dream about each other and i think they have to do something to meet in reality ..

    Please help i want to see sooo bad this movie again, i have been searching all the time but never found anything

    1. Hi
      When I was younger I saw a movie, I think it was scandinavian. It was about a boy who was bullied, there came a circus to town en the boys gets friends with a boy from the circus, actually the boy from the circus is a girl, but she don’t want anybody to know about. What I Aldi remember is that she had a mountainbike and she rode off Stairs to impress the bullies. And Also the girl was misthreated by the boss of the circus. I hope someone knows the title.


    2. there is also another movie in which the man dies at the beggining and gets into heaven, falls in love with a girl and they get back to earth, where they have to meet by the age of 30 i think. but i can’t remember its title

    3. @sabina ~ Here’s a possibility, but it’s a very old movie:
      Peter Ibbetson (1935)
      starring Gary Cooper, Ann Harding
      IMDb synopsis:
      Architect Peter Ibbetson is hired by the Duke of Towers to design a building. Ibbetson discovers that the Duchess of Towers, Mary, is his now-grown childhood sweetheart. Their love revives, but Peter is sentenced to life in prison for an accidental killing. Mary comes to him in dreams. and they are able to live out their romance in a dreamworld.
