Question: There is this movie that I can't remember the name of - I saw in on TV back in the mid 90's. It was about a little boy who kept killing his family members. I don't remember much of it but there was a scene where the boy's grandmother was in the hospital on one of those breathing machines and the boy went and unplugged it so she died. I think he also pushed someone else into a pool who drowned. I know it's a long shot but if anyone can help me name this movie, I'd be so appreciative. Thank you.
Question: I am looking for the title of a foreign film I saw in the late 60's or early seventies about a man with three testicles. I believe it may have been an Italian comedy. My recollection was that it was titled "Man of the Year", but I am only coming up with the contemporary movie of the same title.
Question: Google can't seem to help me with this, so I'll have to ask you. A movie I saw sometime in the early 2000s, I think, featured a woman who has a little girl. This girl, who's autistic, is obsessed with building towers from playing cards or building blocks, to reach her father, whom she thinks is in the moon. The father had died in a climbing accident. Ring any bells? The movie's probably filmed between the years 1995-2002.
Question: Does anyone remember a movie, probably made in the late 70's early 80's somewhere in that time. All I can remember is that its a horror movie, about a little girl who fell in a well and died, its got some rhyme that goes with it but I cannot remember. I also believe that it has some type of clown doll in it also.
Question: I would like to know the name of a tv show that I saw a few years ago. All I can remember is, in one episode this woman (main character?) went to see the famiily of her boyfriend, and he has a brother who pretends to be retarded after an accident the brother causes, and he feels quilty and looks after him and wears a helmet of some sort. In the end the family find out he is faking it.
Question: There's this movie that I've been trying to find that I can't really provide a lot of details about, because I watched it as a kid. I think it's an early 90's movie (definitely before 1996, anyway) or possibly late 80's (89 maybe). It's kind of an action film (sort of), and has a dark-haired, handsome young guy in the lead. The only thing I can remember is that in the movie, he gets a red convertible, and that towards the end, there's a burning (fire) scene, and he has these special shoes that help him stick to the roof (so that he doesn't fall). I know that's a very bad description, but it's all I can remember. Hopefully you can help. I watched it dubbed in French.
Question: I am looking for information on a movie possibly filmed 1995-2002 that featuring a woman with a little girl who is autistic and is obsessed with building towers from playing cards or building blocks. She hopes in doing this she will reach her father believed to be on the moon whom died in a climbing accident.
Question: I am looking for a title of a movie that I believe was made in the 80's, possibly early 90's. All I can remember is that there was a boy who had a lot of junk, and wanted to get rid of it, but someone didn't want him to and told him it was valuable. I also remember there being a little rat-like creature, and them using the term "scuz-bucket" quite often. I believe at one point there was a tunnel of some sorts, and the creature coming out of behind a dumpster? I vividly remember a point where the boy was at a gas station, and had a station wagon type vehicle full of all this supposed "junk." I appreciate the help.
Question: This is a black-and-white movie, where a man is staying in a house that is haunted. After a woman in the house takes him to his room, he notices her talking to a painting of a man and then kissing it good night. Earlier in the movie, when the man was saying goodbye to his wife, she didn't want him to touch her, so that her coat and hair wouldn't get dirty/messed up. I think she got on a train, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know what movie this is?
Question: I'm trying to remember a movie - it was either an older movie (1970s) or was made to look like it was older. It had a guy who I think tried to change his identity but someone recognized him. He also had a woman working with him who wore a blond wig. They kidnapped someone and put her in a huge, safe-like locked room in the basement. The woman put on her blond wig and went driving to meet someone and either pick up diamonds or get money or something. The guy started worrying when he realized someone recognized that he was involved in a fire I think in the past.
Question: I would like to know if there is another movie about the Son of Sam besides Summer of Sam. I just watched Summer of Sam on The True channel and the actors and the info about the movie was all wrong. The one I saw was with a very young Martin Sheen or an older Emilio Estevez (that sparked an argument with my husband so I did research and found nothing). Anyone know?Janice C English
Question: I remember watching a movie (or was it a TV show?) at my aunt's house several years ago. I forgot the name, and I am just curious to find out what it was. All I remember was the end, which involved a car that went crazy with a mind of its own (I think it took place in a desert). I remember a schoolbus somewhere in the scene, also, as well as a woman who was trying to dodge the car. And the last thing I remember is the car driving off of a cliff, and blowing up. Does this ring a bell in anyone's mind?
