Question: I have been searching for this movie for a few years. I believe it was made in the mid 2000's. All I remember is there is a pre-teen girl and boy. I think they have a relationship that their families disapprove of. You find out later the reason the family doesn't want them together is because the mother of one kid had an affair with the father of the other. The parents died in a trailer explosion that the kids witnessed. It is an indie movie. Any help would be much appreciated.
Question: I'm looking for a movie I saw in the 80's (I think). It was a western... Not so sure anymore but I think it went something like this... Some cowboys find a girl in the desert. She looks abused. They take her with them, but then one by one they get killed by what they suspect are Indians, but in the end it's the girl who is the killer.
Question: There was a movie I saw one time. The movie was about a woman whose car had broken down. She is taken in by an old woman and her family. At first, everyone is nice to but when she joins the family for dinner, they don't approve of her dress as they deem it to provocative and ask her to remove her lipstick. Eventually, she realizes that the old woman's family intend to hold her hostage for the rest of her life. She tries to have one of the woman's relatives mail a letter for her but instead, he shows it to the old woman and she reacts by locking the woman in her room. The movie ends with her husband coming to the farm and rescuing her.
Question: Here's a tough one. I'm searching for a color, live-action, grade "B" sci-fi movie from the 1970s about a modern home in the desert Southwest that seems to be at the center of a time/space vortex. The family (I recall a father and son, but there could be more) is terrified because they never know what is waiting for them outside: It might be a Tyrannosaurus Rex from the distant past or an alien invader from the distant future or anything in-between. This was not a comedy and it actually had pretty good special effects for a "B" movie back then. What is this film?Charles Austin Miller
Question: Two teenage boys fall in love with the same girl. A boy often goes skateboarding. He plays the "knife game." He gives a girl a chain with a pendant in the shape of heart. He is run over by a truck and dies. The girl visits his grave with the other boy. She hangs the chain around the neck of the angel statue from the tomb of the boy.Arris
Question: There's a film that's very similar to 2005's The Pacifier and I cannot remember what it was called. The premise was nearly the same as The Pacifier, but the kids were a bit older and one of them was asthmatic - there was a scene in it where somebody threw his inhaler away either off a bridge or next to a river and the asthmatic kid broke down into tears. I think it may be newer than The Pacifier.Neil Jones
Question: Please help me remember the name of this movie. It is from the 1980s, possibly the early 1990s. A teenage girl, maybe college student, is following newspaper stories about a criminal and fantasizes about him. I am mostly sure that the girl is blonde. I remember a scene where she is in her house's kitchen. Her stepfather/mother's boyfriend makes romantic advances. There is an implication that he has sexually abused her, or that she willingly slept with him before, but regrets it.
Question: I'm trying to identify a movie I saw in the 1960s or 70s. A girl's mother is trying to make her think she's crazy. There's a scene where she sees her dead father's body in her playhouse and she runs away through the woods. A hand reaches out from leaves on the path and grabs her ankle. Freaked me out as a child and I'd like to see it again.lyleo
Question: I am looking for the title of a movie...I believe from the late 80s or early 90s it is a period drama...turn of the century. A young woman marries an older man with a beard. They have several children and one of the children is injured in I believe a hunting accident and becomes blind (I think).
Question: I am looking for a movie from late 80s or 90s. America. There is a girl and two brothers (maybe step-brothers). The girl is in relationship with one of the brothers. Girl lives in big house (kinda wealthy). She cheats on her boyfriend with her boyfriend's brother. I can remember some scenes: girl is dancing sensually in bar; one of the brothers goes in jail and when the girl visits him, she says "I want you inside me right now"; hotel scene at the end where the boyfriend finds out that the girl is cheating on him with his brother - there is also shooting in this scene. There are very many sex scenes in this movie. In the storyline there was some issue with the girl's family and at the end it's revealed that the girl had a plan and she played a game, and the brothers were somehow part of it. I hope somebody recognizes the movie and knows the name. Thanks.
Question: I need a title of a film that's very old, probably from late 80s or 90s. I can't remember the actors' names since I was very young when I first saw it, so this is going to be hard. A guy moves into (or passes through) a small town, possibly south USA, where he encounters a gorgeous young raven-haired woman, who is married to an abusive man, who turns out to be her step-father. Sometime during the movie in a climactic scene she realizes that he (her step-father) is the one who killed her own mother with an axe, and with the help of the guy from the beginning, she kills him, and then dumps his body in a car and off a cliff.
Question: This story appeared on a "short story" type of thriller/scary show (i.e. "Night Visions" or "Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction"). A younger man is married to an older, wealthy woman. I am very sure that the woman had short hair of a red/auburn shade, but I might be wrong. The man is cheating on her with a younger woman. The man and younger woman kill his wife - I forget how - but accidents with tools or household objects cause them to end up being killed themselves. Does anyone know what show this was on?
Question: I need help in identifying a movie, please. The only scene/moment I can recall, is 2 huge things (ships, or something) one on each side of the earth. And there was some type of gravity pulse going back and forth between them. You would see a momentary rise of the buildings, rubble, etc. Into the air, then crashing back to the ground. I believe it was inevitably trying to match earth's gravity with the gravity of some other alien planet. Any thoughts?Thairen Finley
Question: Looking for a "time travel" movie in which the two main characters, a man and woman, communicate across time. He lives in "Aniston", while she lives in "Anne's Town." She can see the future through his eyes, but not vice versa. She is shocked/awed by seeing an airplane. Most likely a TV Movie and from the late 70s to early 80s. Thanks.
Question: I'm looking for a movie where a husband and wife are kidnapped by two men, one middle aged and the other one was younger. I'm not sure if it was in a cabin or a boat that they were on. Anyway, the wife is raped by the younger kidnapper and apparently falls in love/feels attached to him. The movie could have been made in the 90's I'm assuming. I believe it was an American made movie. Grateful for any assistance rendered, thanks.
