Question: I've been wondering the name of this movie for years now and cannot figure it out, seeking help. A movie in the late 80's maybe early 90's about a young couple that get married and the mother in law hates his son's wife, I think they live next door or really close. They have a little kid and I think she worked at a school - the mother in law and brother in law drives to shoot and kill the daughter in law. Please help, I want to say a lifetime movie, but I searched and didn't find it.

Question: Trying to remember the name of a movie possibly from the 90's. Don't have much memory other than robbers breaking into a family home but turns out that the family are murderers and they have some people locked in a room, tied to beds, tortured. People may be disfigured or it may be from the torture?
Question: I can't remember the name of this movie. I only remember the very end. I believe this family was trying to escape from this town in their car at night. Then a strange animal or creature runs into their car. It looked like it ran into their car on purpose to prevent them from leaving town. The strange animal was never shown. The next day, the family was back at their home like nothing ever happened. A boy was playing basketball while the other family members were doing chores. It was like they were in a trance.Bkmm
Question: This movie is not Forever Young with Mel Gibson but the plot is pretty much the same. Two guys some time in maybe the 40's or 50's end up inside of Cryopods. When they wake up they go to their lockers and one of the guys who needs to take medication realizes that his yellow pills are now moldy and ineffective. They leave the facility where their Cryopods were at and go to a McDonalds to try to get something to eat but don't have any money. They eventually realize that they are now living in the 80's and have to find a way to adjust to their new home.
Question: Looking for a made-for-TV Western movie (1980's-ish), light drama with a young Sheriff or lawman called (I think) "Longarm" or they called him that. (*No, this is NOT the name of the movie...I checked that already). He's traveling on the road with a young woman his age and a precocious 10-year-old girl who's always mouthing off to him. They're on the road together and he needs to get to a certain town so he can get something done there. Don't remember any of the actors' names.CCARNI
Question: You will be our hero if you can answer this question for us! We just need the title of this movie! It is NOT "Blow Out" with John Travolta, nor "FX," but it is of the same genre. (Mystery/Suspense/Thriller/Who-Done-It). It came out around the 1970's or 80's. The lead actress COULD have been Cindy Williams, or someone who looked like her. The key scene, around which the whole storyline revolved, was a man and woman holding a private conversation about some crime or secret matter as they slowly walked around a large circular fountain in a public park. The hero of the story, through whose eyes it was told, was a technician who had several shotgun-microphones secretly set up in various hidden positions around the park to monitor that rendezvous point at the fountain on the plaza. The crux of the story is he accidentally picks up a conversation having to do with an impending murder, or big crime, or something. It was actually very well made and suspenseful. Can you remember the name of that movie?Patriots Press
Question: Korean (Asian) Romance/Drama movie (adult themes) I saw this a LONG while back and haven't been able to find it since. It's about a wife who gets bored at home because her husband is always out. She somehow meets a woman who encourages her to join the world of prostitution, which she slowly does. She gains confidence the more she takes part in it with that woman (who is probably a bit out of her mind) pushing her along the way. I think at one point she sleeps with a guy in a store? I also remember the "pimp" wore very pimpish clothes. Huge hat, cane, cape, all that. The ending is what I remember the most. The wife gets caught by her husband/she catches her husband at the brothel, whereupon we learn the woman who was encouraging the wife to work at the brothel had actually been sleeping with the husband, as he is a regular. This conversation happens while the husband at that woman are having sex and she is choking him. There's also I believe a scene where she gets kicked out and begins to bang on the door hysterically, angrily demanding the money she is owed from the husband. I hope that's enough to help. I've searched a lot and can't find it.Jaykhach
Question: I saw an animated movie in the 90's (maybe an 80's movie, Secret of NIMH style) where I only really vaguely remember the beginning scene (I think). *At night, possibly raining* Two characters in a small room when a knock at the door comes, the older of the two knew it was threatening so hides the younger behind a cupboard door, then a struggle between the older and intruder ensues (Holding a knife I believe), the light swings about and young'n witnesses this. Any ideas?
Question: I am looking for the name of a movie from I think the 90s, about a couple that have a son and he abuses her a lot - one day she tries to call the cops but he stabs her repeatedly outside of their home, but she does not die. I saw it when I was younger and have been wondering about it since.Samantha Arnold
Question: There was a movie I saw on TV several months ago. It took place in Britain at a school with a student. In the movie, there is some kind of group or band who is popular among kids but for reasons unknown, anyone caught wearing a shirt of the group is arrested. The kid is asked by two fellow students to bring them shirts of the group. He does but when he hands them the shirts, they deny asking anything of him or that they even know him. When the boy turns around, he sees that he's face to face with a cop and his family has to bail him out of jail. What made this movie shocking was that the boy, his sister and his parents were werewolves.
