Question: When I was younger I saw a movie about a teacher and her students who were abducted by three men wearing masks. The leader wore a Santa Claus mask. The teacher and her students manage to flee from the men but end up getting chased by all three. The only thing I'm sure of, is that it did not have Christopher Lambert in it. Does anyone know the name of this movie?
Question: I saw a movie early last year on Netflix where a blonde woman moves into a trailer park and it's a little weird. She witnesses two people having sex through a window in one of the trailers and the other thing I remember is she was later chased up a concrete structure of some sort. It was a pretty good movie and I'd like to see it again.
Question: I'm trying to remember a movie that I saw on TV years ago. It tells the story of a rich man (a lawyer I think), who is married to a much younger woman. The movie starts with the woman's birthday, her husband offers her a yacht as a present for her birthday. Later on, it appears that the woman has a lover and she plans along with her lover to kill her husband.Yasabdo
Question: I can't remember the name of a movie. It's about a young girl losing her older sister because her older sister goes to Europe where she joins some kind of movement. She disappears/dies and years later when the little sister is old enough she travels to Europe where she meets up with her sister's ex (and I think they get involved) and follows her older sister's footsteps, possibly by letters she's received from her sister, trying to figure out what happened to her. There's this one scene from the movie I specifically remember. It's a scene where the little sister has been given a stamp with LSD on it and she walks about town and when she looks in a shop mirror, she hallucinates seeing her sister's reflection.Tanja EgestrÃ¸m Jensen
Question: I'm looking for a film from the late 80's early 90's. It was an American film about a young girl who was abducted and murdered I think by her male school teacher or neighbour. When the man is eventually charged and found guilty of the child's murder in court, the girl's mother shoots him in the courtroom.
Question: I started watching a movie the other night, but fell asleep midway through and have no idea what the title of the movie was about. There were two women in a female prison/jail and they were in the gym talking. A few minutes later a guy walks in. He was either doing construction work there or was a janitor/maintenance worker. Him and one of the girls have sex behind the bleachers and he leaves. But he falls in love with her and marries her when she gets out of prison/jail. Anyone?
Question: Does anyone know a movie that begins with a witch transporting a woman's child (in utero) to a cow before birth? I believe it's the same movie that has some magical creatures that have bat-like wings that envelop unsuspecting humans and devours all but their bones in a matter of seconds...anyone know of this film (name and year made)?
Question: I'm having trouble finding a movie I saw on Netflix a couple years ago. It was about a 17 year old boy that enters college early and ends up being attracted to an older classmate in his art class. He ends up sleeping with her and finds out she has a 14 year old daughter who ends up liking him. When he doesn't like her back she falls into bad company, and a guy tries to force her into sex, but the 17 year old shows up with a cop and saves her.Grimsystem
Question: I am trying to find the name of a movie from the 80's that played on HBO often. From what I can remember, there is a blond teenage boy who accidentally hits a girl on a bike with his car and kills her. I believe she was going to the store for her mother for a loaf of bread and it was dark and raining outside. Sometime later, the boy ends up dating the dead girl's sister not knowing she's the sister of the girl he killed. The mother sort of freaks out when he's introduced to the family. Any ideas? The blond guy had wavy/curly hair and played in a few movies back in the 80's. Thank you.
Question: I am looking for the title of a heist/bank robbery movie from the 60s, 70s or early 80s in which the robber, along with his (female ?) accomplice gets himself locked up in the vault. Since the vault cannot be opened before the next working day, he has a whole week-end to open several deposit boxes and put their contents in a deposit box of his own. When the vault can finally be opened again and he is "rescued", nobody knows the boxes have been robbed.
Question: There is a movie with a girl from another country who is in a prearranged engagement and before she is supposed to wed she gets to travel. In her travels she meets a young man and falls in love. Once being sent back to where she came the young man finds her and wants to break her out. Throughout the movie they speak English as well one or two other languages. I remember seeing the title once but it was in another language so I cannot recall it. Can you help me? Thanks.
Question: I'm looking for a movie I watched at school. It was about a teenage girl who gives birth to a daughter, but because of her age she can't raise her, so the child is given up for adoption to a childless couple who raise her. 2 years or so later, the teenager decides that she wants her daughter back, and so goes to court to fight for her. Any help in finding this movie would be much appreciated.Heather Benton
Question: I'm looking for the name of a movie that was made in the last 10 to 15 years, not in the U.S. But it was in English (not sure if it was dubbed). This 20 something guy drove a trash truck, met this wizard or something from another dimension who trained him to fight bad guys from other dimensions, all the while trying to form a relationship with a girl who worked at some type of coffee house with Xmas lights on the inside. Is this familiar to anyone? Thank you.
Question: This is a movie I saw a couple years ago; I believe it was a Lifetime movie. I don't remember much. All I can recall was a baby crying in a high chair, kicking her black shoes, and the lady got frustrated and killed the baby. Then I remember her going to court. And at the end it was a big truck digging up dirt looking for the baby's body.
Question: There is a movie from the late 80s or early 90s. All I remember from it is that there was a father and daughter, the daughter got a part on a TV show and she had to cry and say the line, "I love the African Americans." She was supposed to hug the lady in front of her, but she ran off set to hug her dad instead. That's all I've got. I remember seeing an interview with the female director (casting director maybe?) of the movie who said that when the little girl came in to audition, she cried but had just gotten new glasses, so instead of rubbing her eyes to wipe away the tears, she rubbed her glasses.
