Question: I'm trying to remember a movie I saw several times on TV In the 1970's. It starred a famous blonde older movie star as the mother, and a young man who played her son, who was often in 70's made for TV movies. I thought the actress was Barbara Stanwyck but this movie doesn't seem to be listed in her bio. The younger actor always played smooth, creepy roles. It was a thriller where the young man had an obsessive relationship with his mother, and would murder for her or because of her - I think whenever he became attracted to a woman, he would eventually murder the woman because she was a threat to his feelings for his mother. They lived in a big mansion with a large staircase and at the end was a scene where I believe she finds out he is killing for her, and rewards him with incestuous affection.Hatzic
Question: I'm looking for the title of a film before 1970, not a Hitchcock film, that features a woman becoming crazy by voices she hears in the mist. Her husband tries to drive her crazy. It's for my father, he is searching for this film for a long time and I thought and promised him that I could find this film easily on the internet, without any success until now...Looking forward to your suggestion(s).Thanks!Jan Willem.jw.kooijmans
Question: Does anyone know a movie that begins with a witch transporting a woman's child (in utero) to a cow before birth? I believe it's the same movie that has some magical creatures that have bat-like wings that envelop unsuspecting humans and devours all but their bones in a matter of seconds...anyone know of this film (name and year made)?
Question: In the early to mid 90's, my sister and I used to watch a movie all of the time and I cannot remember what it is called. I remember it starts out with a woman who is in jail who gets released and somehow ends up getting a job as a nanny for a little boy and a little girl. The siblings are obsessed with eating pizza. I think at one point during the movie the nanny tries to sell the kids to another couple who asked the kids to find a contact on the dad. Like an eye contact. I know it sounds weird but I just can't think of the name of the movie. Does this ring a bell for anybody?
Question: I'm having trouble finding a movie I saw on Netflix a couple years ago. It was about a 17 year old boy that enters college early and ends up being attracted to an older classmate in his art class. He ends up sleeping with her and finds out she has a 14 year old daughter who ends up liking him. When he doesn't like her back she falls into bad company, and a guy tries to force her into sex, but the 17 year old shows up with a cop and saves her.Grimsystem
Question: I started watching a movie the other night, but fell asleep midway through and have no idea what the title of the movie was about. There were two women in a female prison/jail and they were in the gym talking. A few minutes later a guy walks in. He was either doing construction work there or was a janitor/maintenance worker. Him and one of the girls have sex behind the bleachers and he leaves. But he falls in love with her and marries her when she gets out of prison/jail. Anyone?
Question: I am looking for the title of a heist/bank robbery movie from the 60s, 70s or early 80s in which the robber, along with his (female ?) accomplice gets himself locked up in the vault. Since the vault cannot be opened before the next working day, he has a whole week-end to open several deposit boxes and put their contents in a deposit box of his own. When the vault can finally be opened again and he is "rescued", nobody knows the boxes have been robbed.
Question: I am trying to find the name of a movie from the 80's that played on HBO often. From what I can remember, there is a blond teenage boy who accidentally hits a girl on a bike with his car and kills her. I believe she was going to the store for her mother for a loaf of bread and it was dark and raining outside. Sometime later, the boy ends up dating the dead girl's sister not knowing she's the sister of the girl he killed. The mother sort of freaks out when he's introduced to the family. Any ideas? The blond guy had wavy/curly hair and played in a few movies back in the 80's. Thank you.
Question: I am looking for the title of a movie. I believe it was in the 80s, and I could swear Meredith Baxter was in it. It was about a woman who was married but fell in love with another man (I believe he was her cousin?) they both went crazy. She had children from her husband and they were in a delusional state. There is a part in the movie where they blow themselves up in the car/jeep they are in (entire family).Kristen
Question: I'm looking for a film from the late 80's early 90's. It was an American film about a young girl who was abducted and murdered I think by her male school teacher or neighbour. When the man is eventually charged and found guilty of the child's murder in court, the girl's mother shoots him in the courtroom.
Question: I forgot the name of this one movie that I saw back in 2007 on cable television (I believe it aired on AZNtv) the film is set in India and centers around a woman whose family owns a restaurant from their home. Her (rather mixed) family arranges for her to marry a man of good economic standing, but through the length of the film, she begins to fall in love with a woman.
Question: I have no clue what this movie is, as I woke up to it in the middle of the night on IFC a few years ago... What I recall is there is a young woman who carries poison around, killing everyone including the husband of another family that helped her steal millions of dollars. He knows he will die, so he hides the money in stuffed teddy bears to be found by his wife in his child's bedroom. The movie ends with her basically hitchhiking, an old man in a truck stops to help her-she smiles after she gets in and looks at her bottle of poison, he smiles as he covers a woman's body again with a tarp that is in the bed of his pick up. It is not much to go on, but I was violently ill, this is what I recall and I hope you are able to help me. Thanks.
Question: I saw the movie in late 80s but it may be of earlier years. I only remember few fragments and most likely it's an Italian movie: a woman is cheating on her husband, she goes to an outside café and pulls a cigarette, some men give her a light and she agrees on sex for money. They go to a hotel, go upstairs and men have sex with her one after another. She gets pregnant and is murdered by her husband and put in the car trunk. Can you remember the name of the movie?
Question: This movie aired on either Showcase or BRAVO. It was a period movie where two women went into the city wearing masks essentially looking for sex. The next scene showed one of the women with a man against a wall. Later in the movie, she sees this same man injured and I think she is helping him or tending to him somehow. I think this was made sometime in the 90s since I recall it looking like a fairly recent movie around 1998 or 1999.Basia82
