Question: There was a movie I watched sometime in the early to mid 90s. It was about a woman whose friends were being killed one at a time. In the end of the movie she confronts the killer who is another woman. According to the killer, when she was just a child, she had a birthday party at her house but everyone ignored her and paid more attention to the other woman. Angry about this, she was going to burn the woman's hair to get even. Unfortunately, she held the candle behind her and it caused her own hair to catch on fire and also disfigured her at the same time.
Question: I vaguely remember a movie from when I was younger (I'm 30 now) about a blonde girl who is maybe babysitting a younger girl. She takes her out with her at night to party - they go to the beach, the blonde meets up with a guy and the younger girl feels so special because she has been with this cool chick hanging out all night. Sorry I don't remember more - I feel like it MIGHT have had "night" in the title. Thanks in advance!meganco83
Question: I am looking for a made for television movie that came out years ago. The movie is about a family with 2 young sons. The father favors the youngest son and is cold to the other. One day both boys went for a boat ride. The youngest boy accidentally falls off the boat and starts to drown. The older son tries to save him but he hesitates at first. The young boy drowns. The older son is under suspicion and might go to court. The father blames his older son for what happened. I believe that the mother separates from the father and supports her son and the father doesn't support him. That's the plot does anyone know the name? Thanks.
Question: I'm trying to remember the title of a movie or TV series set in the late 1800s or early 1900s. The girl is travelling in a stagecoach that is either held up or breaks down miles from a town. She tries to carry her trunk all that way, and a guy who is trying to help her tells her that it's too heavy. He ends up having to carry her. A later scene, she tries to light a wood stove and ends up smoking up the whole room and her face, ruining her dress. I think she was a school teacher.
Question: I can't remember the title or stars of a movie, maybe 15 years ago or so, about a troubled young girl who goes to work for an older woman's restaurant in a small town. She comes up with idea to raffle off the restaurant to a best essay contest winner. The woman's son is presumed dead in war, but actually still lives, hiding out.
Question: I have recently recalled a movie I watched a couple years ago but I do not know the name of it. I would greatly appreciate if you could help me with this. Thanks in advance. Here's what I remember: A guy and his sister realize that they can talk to his girlfriend's ghost that was recently in a train accident. (They saw it in a newspaper) In the end his sister unfolds the newspaper to reveal that her brother was a ghost the whole time. He then recalls that he and his girlfriend got stalled on the train tracks and got out in time, but the girlfriend went back to the car to get her necklace or something. The boyfriend went after her and a train ended up coming right at that moment. I hope that helps because that's all I remember. Like I said, thanks in advance for any answers.alyss225
Question: About 23 years ago, I remember seeing a movie in the theater. It was a horror movie. I can remember certain events happening in the movie. A head gets blown up in a microwave, a circular saw flies through the air and kills somebody. I think all of these things take place in an old house. I vaguely remember an old pier leading out to a pond that somebody may have been killed on. I thought at first the name of the movie was something like "Superstition", but I have searched and searched and cannot find anything on this movie. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Question: Help! I'm looking for a movie with a "dark" atmosphere. It had two girls, one of them was kind of goth and lived in a very dark world and the other was all bright and happy. At the end the dark girl kills someone. It's from another country like Hungary or Germany. Also I kind of remember the title had the word mirror in it, but I'm not sure...
Question: I'm looking for a movie that came out sometime in the 90's. Here's what I remember: there was a young girl, late teens maybe, who was in care of her younger brother. The boy had something wrong with his head that I can't remember, maybe autism? Anyway he was seeing this child psychologist and he eventually has the little boy admitted to a hospital over his issues. I think the sister tries to have an affair with the psychologist and tries to kill him when he rejects her but putting him in an icy like by his home after shaking him. I'm pretty sure it turned out in the end that she killed her and the little boys' parents.
Question: Looking for a film could be 80s or 90s but might be earlier. A teenager has a baby boy but gets it taken from her as she was too young - it was seen as wrong and she was forced to adopt the baby out. The boy's adopted mother is nasty to him. In one scene she makes him eat his own sick? I think he might be autistic but not sure. Please help - this has been bugging me for years and I need the name!Jodie112
Question: Hi, need help identifying this long lost film. Saw this movie about 35/40 years ago. It's in b/w and was probably made in the 1950's or 60's, or possibly earlier. It's about a group of school children and they're putting on a school play (possibly a religious play like Jesus and the Manger or something like that) and during the course of this one of the little girls in the class becomes very sick and ends up dying near the end of the film, and it affects one of her classmates (a young boy) who was kind of in love with her.
Question: My sister and I watched a film set in the 90's in America, maybe somewhere like New Orleans (Louisiana, Alabama, some kind of place like that). The film is about a family whose daughter is kidnapped and murdered on the first day of her kidnapping, but the murderer states that she is still alive, it has a lot of court room and church based scenes, I can't remember any of the actresses or actors. In the end credits is a picture of a country lane where the girl was snatched from, and when the credits go up the song Amazing Grace is sung.
