I caught the tail end of a presumably made-for-television movie some time in the early to mid 90s. It featured a man who had himself altered to look exactly like another man whose life and family he wanted. The two ended up fighting with one of them falling to his death. We are led to believe the evil man died, but it is shortly thereafter revealed that he was the one who survived when he is shown shuffling a coin on his knuckles, which my brother told me is something he was shown doing earlier in the movie. Does anyone have any idea what the title of this movie is?Phaneron
Has there ever been an incident in any Star Trek episode or movie where the Enterprise (or other vessel) encounters another ship that is oriented upside down relative to Enterprise's perspective? Given that starships use artificial gravity, a ship's orientation in space is meaningless (in fact there are times Enterprise will bank sharply to turn, but inside everyone and everything stays oriented upright and nothing falls over or slides off things). It just seems improbable that everyone is flying through space the same way, but I haven't seen or don't recall this. Is there something mentioned (show or novelization) about rules of orientation in space (e.g. a galactic law).Bishop73
What movie is this? An evil guy wakes up with bandages on his face. he takes them off and looks out the window and destroys a passing passenger plane with his mind.
I am looking for the name of a movie that came out in the late 1960's or 1970-71. The only thing I can remember about this movie is a scene that occurs in an underground cavern with a natural pool of water with a woman (Ursula Andress?) wearing a long flowing gown appearing to walk on water. There is also a man (actor unknown) there with her. She may be an apparition that suddenly appears to him.Clockman
There was a movie with Jim Carrey in it although he was not the lead. The only scene I remember is that he walks home and knocks on the door, his dad and sister are surprised to see him because they were told he was dead. His sister believes that he's actually a zombie and wants to know what it's like to be one.
There was a movie that had Keanu Reeves in it. In the movie, he plays a teenager who discovers that he accidentally gave his girlfriend to a pimp and intends on making her into a prostitute. When Keanu finally manages to rescue her, he takes her home and tells her and her dad what he thinks of her, breaks up with her and then walks home.
What is the title of this movie? A woman meets a vampire. I remember one conversation where he tells her about a woman who he used to be in love with; he says that they were together for 100 years. The movie had an adult comedy feel. Made in the '80s or early '90s.
When I was younger I watched an old black and white film, it had 3 firemen in a old fire house and there was a headless horseman in it as well. I would love to see the film again if I can find it but I don't know the title, does anyone know it?
If I remember correctly, there was a movie about some kids who snuck into a house where an old woman died. Suddenly they are being murdered by the old woman and came back looking exactly how they did when they died. One person was killed by being stabbed in the back with scissors and came back with the scissors still embedded in the back. I also think that one of the people in this movie played Russ Thompson Jr. In the movie Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.
I'm trying to find the name of a movie where people get paid to be living mannequins inside a department store. The manager gives them a hard time by trying to make them move during their shift. One night this guy and female employees are dressed up in a wedding outfits and witness either a murder or bank robbery. The criminal looks inside the window trying to figure out if the people he sees are real or fake then leaves. Is there any one who knows the name? I think it came out about the same time Wedlock came out.
Looking for the title of a book that contains a collection of short vampire stories. One story has a boy talking with another boy who claims to be a vampire and tells him the rules of vampirism. The boy says that he would like to be a vampire too but the end of the story has him changing his mind but the vampire claims that it's too late. Another story has a teenage boy waking up in a coffin and at first refusing to accept that he's dead. He eventually realizes that he's a vampire and after leaving the funeral home after attacking his uncle, he meets the girl who turned him into a vampire.
I remember a poignant scene in a (new-ish) movie where a dead person communicates with their living loved one by dropping all the blossoms off a tree all at once. I think pink blossoms, and it was perhaps as an answer to a question. What is the movie?
Several times I've only seen the ending of this movie. A man goes to an abandoned construction site at night to rescue a woman and her son who have been abducted. When he gets there, he sees little robotic machines. The kidnapper tells him that the machines won't attack him and he goes to the top of the site. When he gets up there and confronts the kidnapper, he's told that the machines will attack and kill the first person that appears on the ground floor. A fight ensues and the kidnapper gets knocked to ground level and is killed by his own machines.
Why do cartoon shows often portray characters with three fingers (and a thumb) instead of four? For example, The Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park.
This is a TV movie from the early or mid seventies. A lady is in a sculptor's loft with several disassembled statues. A head of a statue sitting on a table starts speaking, saying to her, "you killed me, Rachel, you killed me!" She screams, picks up the head and smashes it on the floor. Anybody have an idea what the name of this movie was or who was in it?Scott215
