There was a game for the video game console, Sega Saturn. It takes place in a mansion located in the afterlife. All of the inhabitants are dead and they take the forms of butterflies. The player, along with one of the inhabitants, is looking into mysterious things that are occurring such as one inhabitant being destroyed which leads them to discover that one of the other inhabitants is working with an evil entity. One of the items that the player is given is a deck of tarot cards that represents each of the other inhabitants.

Answer: This game is "Mansion of Hidden Souls".

Name of film in which a wife is cheating on her husband, who pretends to be deaf. Her lover has doubts about his deafness and fires a gun next to his ear, and the husband does not flinch.

There was a movie that I believe starred the late Bill Bixby. The movie was about a man who had a son and the man married a woman who had a daughter. His son and his new wife's daughter fall in love with each other and one night after coming home he catches them both asleep in his son's bedroom.

Answer: The film you are referring to is a 1986 TV movie called "Sin of Innocence".

Looking for a 90's movie about a evil clown, not the movie IT. I just remember it was the scariest thing I had ever seen on television when I was a kid, and It also had to do with the clown appearing in different places to scare people.

Looking for a movie about mythical Gods being real in today's society, one of them, a man, saves one of the kids. I don't remember much but it might of been on HBO around the late 90's, and there was something about Golden apples.

Looking for a movie about two kids and the smaller kid dreams that he was flying with fireworks or fire crackers, I think their dad ran out on his family and they get a new step dad. At the end the younger kid sees himself flying while fireworks are going on...this was a movie I watched in the 90's.

Name of a movie made in the 50's or 60's where a boyfriend proposes to his girlfriend in front of a jewelry store after hours. He asks her if she sees a ring she likes and then pops the question. That may not be enough information, but I would be grateful if anyone has a clue or guess to the name of this movie.

A comedy movie with Peter Lorre as a sheriff. He says "contractum, sactum, pactum" which he defines as "done and dished out." What is the name of the movie?

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.

Answer: That might be "Too Close to Home" with Judith Light as the murderous mother-in-law, a TV movie from 1997. Alternatively there is TV movie with that plot. The Perfect Mother. Tyne Daly is a controlling mother, convinces her son's to murder her daughter in law. Based on a true story.

Jodi Hendon

What is the name of a movie about 3 siblings? After spend some years in a psychiatric hospital, the oldest daughter knows that parents are abusing her little brother and sister, comes back and killed both of her parents in their bed by cutting them into pieces. She tried to hide the body, but a hand is found.

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?

Answer: Could be "The people under the stairs" from 1991.

In what movie is there a scene where I think someone is talking and says something along the lines "fed the fish" then it shows pizza crust in the fish tank? it came up at dinner and now all my friends are trying to recall the movie and it is bothering me please help.

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.

Chosen answer: Sounds like a 2002 TV movie called Disappearances. Harry Hamlin and Susan Dey play a couple with kids, who stop in a desert ghost town. A mysterious force prevents them from leaving and they end up becoming part of the town's other trapped inhabitants.

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.

Answer: Sounds like "Late for Dinner" (1991).

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.

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?

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.

Answer: It is similar to the (1967) Belle de Jour. Catherine Deneuve plays a bored housewife who becomes a high class escort.

Back in 1996 or '97, I watched what I remember a TV movie named simply CLASS 101. It was about a college dorm kind of movie and they were about to graduate or something like that. I have next to nothing details about it. I know it is not With Honors nor Threesome.
