What is the movie where a woman is accused for murder and is either in jail or a mental asylum. Right at the end you see the real murderer outside where he flicks his cigarette lighter three times (this being the signature move of the murderer throughout the movie)?Shannen Bartlett
I wondered if any one can help me figure out a film I watched when I was a kid - it was about a truck driver who gets killed out on the road, and the man's dad drives around and searches for who it was. At the end of the film it turned out to be a woman - I don't know if it was a true story.Sarah Perrins
What was the name of a movie around 1965 to 1967 about teenagers who sold watches to buy racing betting tickets. At the end, the man who purchased them for the teens bought a big winning ticket, but died at the racetrack and dropped the winning ticket into thousands of discarded tickets at the track?
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.
I have been trying to search for a movie, TV show episode or TV movie with this plot: I remember that there were kidnapped girls kept in some kind of basement, tied up and gagged, hanging from the ceiling. The kidnapper would put a wedding dress on the girl he was going to kill. One of the girls manages to escape by pretending to be the kidnapper son's dead mother and she sets him on fire. It is not:The Cellar Door, Bereavement, The Hamiltons. Could be a TV episode. Please help!
What's the name of this movie? It has to be from the 80s/early 90s. Hair/clothing was current with the time. I remember it being about a dad who gets re-married to a woman who is only marrying him for his money but he has no clue. The wedding is outdoor like in a park area. Once she ties the knot she starts secretly changing everything and she does not like the dad's kid (can't remember if it was boy/girl) I think she secretly makes the kid miserable. She redecorates the house and particularly the kid's bedroom in a way that the kid hates tremendously. I think she redecorates using an excessive amount of the color red. In the end, I think the dad/new wife split and possibly the kid spends the night on a park bench.
There was a movie I watched sometime in the early to mid 90s. It was about a woman whose friends were being killed one at a time. In the end of the movie she confronts the killer who is another woman. According to the killer, when she was just a child, she had a birthday party at her house but everyone ignored her and paid more attention to the other woman. Angry about this, she was going to burn the woman's hair to get even. Unfortunately, she held the candle behind her and it caused her own hair to catch on fire and also disfigured her at the same time.
I watched this movie years ago so I can't remember all the details, but I believe it took place in the 1800s based upon their clothing. It was about sisters and they had to go multiple funerals which may have been for some of the sisters that died, and when people died that had to wear black for a year.
For about 30 years I've been trying to find out the title of a black and white movie from the 30s - 50s. I fancy it might have starred someone like Jimmy Stewart. It was about a husband (and father) from a well-off community who. I think, gets hit by a train and suffers amnesia. At the end of the film, he inadvertently comes across his old house at around Christmas time, and looks through the window, but is promptly sent on his way, unrecognised by his own family.
There was an animated movie in the 80's or 90's about a small girl being chased by werewolves. If I remember, they want to turn her into a werewolf as well. She is helped by a talking toad and with his help she manages to escape.
I am looking for a made for television movie that came out years ago. The movie is about a family with 2 young sons. The father favors the youngest son and is cold to the other. One day both boys went for a boat ride. The youngest boy accidentally falls off the boat and starts to drown. The older son tries to save him but he hesitates at first. The young boy drowns. The older son is under suspicion and might go to court. The father blames his older son for what happened. I believe that the mother separates from the father and supports her son and the father doesn't support him. That's the plot does anyone know the name? Thanks.
Looking for a movie in the mid-80's. I remember a vehicle gets dropped in the jungle named H.A.R.V. And in one shoot out a guy is blown out of his shoes by a shotgun behind a counter. I think a girl hired this man and his buddy to find her sister.Clif D Bradley
I'm trying to remember the title of a movie or TV series set in the late 1800s or early 1900s. The girl is travelling in a stagecoach that is either held up or breaks down miles from a town. She tries to carry her trunk all that way, and a guy who is trying to help her tells her that it's too heavy. He ends up having to carry her. A later scene, she tries to light a wood stove and ends up smoking up the whole room and her face, ruining her dress. I think she was a school teacher.
I watched this movie probably late 90s. I was about 8-10 years old when I saw it so the only thing I remember was two boys perhaps camping in their backyard. The boy had a sister whose friend was also sleeping over. The boy's friend was infatuated with the sister's friend, and in the morning the sister's friend was found murdered, either suffocated or strangled. I remember they were in some shed playing strip poker, then everyone went inside - the girl who is the boys sister's friend wants to stay out and sleep there, and then the next morning she was dead.Gemxx12
I'm looking for the title of a not so old movie, that starts with a couple going to rob a road restaurant, sitting inside that restaurant and discussing to do it or not.Tom Edelweiss
I can't remember the title or stars of a movie, maybe 15 years ago or so, about a troubled young girl who goes to work for an older woman's restaurant in a small town. She comes up with idea to raffle off the restaurant to a best essay contest winner. The woman's son is presumed dead in war, but actually still lives, hiding out.
