Question: There is a film I watched a couple of years ago, I don't have a clue what the name is or what the characters were called. The film is based on this girl who is about 13, this boy fancies her but she doesn't like him back, at one point she hurts her leg during a PE class - I think and he tries to help by massaging it but she either hurts him or has a go at him for it. In the film he drowns, I think in a lake, and he might have tried to save the person he was swimming with. At the boy's funeral he has an open casket and the girl looks in and sees him holding either something that is a keepsake from one of their meetings or a picture of her. I really want to watch it again and it's been bugging me for years.
Question: I am looking for the name of a movie about a girl who lives in a small town, and when a local girl is killed she starts to obsess about the murder and eventually kidnaps a boy who may or may not be the killer. I saw a review of it 3 years back - it was starring an up and coming young actress. I thought it was Winter's Bone, but it's not.
Question: I'm looking for a movie, possibly two, that I saw 20+ years ago. This is what I remember. There is a girl (late teens, early 20s) with short dark hair who gets kidnapped by a group of people. She escapes and I remember her running down the street in her underwear (I think) and then she goes up to a house and starts pounding on the door to get help. An older woman comes to the door and the girl is begging to be let in, but the woman gets freaked out, goes back into the house, and shuts the door. The kidnappers find the girl and take her again. The other part I remember is very vague and I don't know if it's from the same movie or a different one. There is a man with longish, dark, curly hair and glasses. There is also an old pick up truck; red, maybe orange. I also remember a mattress being outside and set on fire. Please help me if you can.KitKat0922
Question: I am searching for a movie I saw a long time ago. I do not remember much about it other than there was a young girl and a man and I remember them dancing on top of a truck to Bruce Springsteen's Dancing in the Dark. I also remember a scene where this man kills a dog and wraps it in a flag (I think) and the younger girl sees it and runs away in a field.
Question: I'm looking for this movie, and I can't remember much but it's been nagging at me for ages. I remember this boy, and he's in a hamster ball of sorts, I think he's sick or something. He ran away, was happy, and he got chased by an animal or something - I really can't remember anything else.
Question: I am looking for a movie which I watched as a kid in the 90's. It starts with a girl getting off a school bus and walks to her house. She walks in and sees her mother being stabbed to death. The girl runs away and in to the forest where the killer runs after her. She manages to get away but loses her memory. She grows up and as an adult starts remembering what happened. I really want to know what this movie is called.
Question: This horror/mystery/supernatural movie is from the 60's or 70's and all I can remember is that a family moves into or inherits a grand manor with an over grown pool. There is a man who is missing his legs and lives under the sinks - uses secret tunnels to traverse the manor on a wheeled board.
Question: Movie help: I cannot remember the title or any actors. All I remember is a teenage girl runs away from home. A man picks her up hitchhiking, they talk for a while, I think he is about to drive her home, then a truck hits them in an accident and she is killed. The man now knows where she lives and he goes to see her mom. That's all I can remember, if anyone knows what it is called please help me.alfinchison
Question: I'm looking for a movie about a little girl, her older brother and her mother who were about to travel to somewhere or maybe return to the U.S. While at the airport the little girl's doll was mixed up with a similar doll filled with diamonds. The mother was arrested at the airport, and the little girl and her brother were on the run from the thieves who owned the diamond filled doll, I believe they were running from the thieves in Mexico. Most of this movie detail may not be accurate but that's how I remember it, and also this movie is not "The Child Glass."movieloo
Question: I'm looking for a movie or maybe a TV movie from the late 90s/early 2000s, where a man stalks a teenage girl and sometimes stalks her in her own house. It's not the movie "Hider In The House" but similar. The only scenes I can remember with detail are: the father ends up walking on a trap door and falls into the basement where he's pierced by spikes, and the stalker forces the daughter to dance with him at the end. Also I believe the teenage girl has no mother, and the only family she has are her father and brother.Lemmwinks
Question: Looking for the title of a animated movie, I remember watching it on the movie network years ago (15+), and it was really quite funny. From what I can remember it was animated, and it was about a bunch of kids, they were rather vulgar and it was a R rated comedy-like movie for adults. I thought it was called The Kid, but i can't find it anywhere online. Keeps coming up with the Disney movie, and its DEFINITELY not a Disney movie. There's one line that stands out for me it goes something like this: "Beware of he who F*cketh, for the time and the tide, by thou thyselves be f*cked in double measure up the a*s, thou ignoble f*ckhead" I would LOVE to find it and watch it. I'm wondering if it was an independent film or something and that's why it's so difficult to find, but if anyone knows the movie I'm referring to, I would greatly appreciate the help.Beckstenupholus
Question: Not sure of the name of a movie. It's about a group of girlfriends that go to see one of their friends. They find out that their friend is in an abusive relationship. I do remember one scene that might help a little more. On their way to see their girlfriend they tease a cop or maybe some random by pretending they are taking off their undies, but really they have a glove box full of undies and they throw their spare undies to the guy.Bunny054
Question: I'm looking for the title of a heist movie. I don't have a specific time frame of when it was made, but I do remember that I watched it somewhere between 2001 and 2005 on DVD. It had a (subtle) sex scene in it which took place in a sauna, and I think it ended with the main character putting someone on a weight bomb in a white van, and after that he got out via a secret hatch in the bottom, parked over a sewer.Friso94
Question: I'm trying to find the title of a movie I watched in the early 1980's about a poor military family whose daughter is killed by a train while playing on the train tracks, and money is donated to the family for the funeral. That's pretty much all I can remember, but would love to see it again.
Question: I am looking for a movie that played on the scifi channel between 2002-2004 aired very late at night. I caught the last 15 minutes which showed two men fighting in an old west looking indian fort. The men stabbed and beat each other repeatedly and one had a small sickle stuck in him during the fighting. The film ended when the 2 men wrestled each other and rolled into a bear trap which killed them both, then some people rode to the fort, opened the room the men were in, looked at them, and then closed the door. The credits rolled then. Last thing that might help, no one said a word during the entire last 15 minutes as I remember.
Question: I'm after the title of a cartoon. I remember watching a cartoon when I was young i.e. in the late 90s (animated film) that had hillbilly style animals that would play bluegrass music. I remember the grass actually being blue in the cartoon. I remember one scene where the 'good character' was versus the 'evil character' in a musician's competition and the evil character was playing so hard that the guitar smoked and blew up. Another scene was when the good character was being told to keep on practising and he would get better at playing his banjo. This sounds really vague, I know, but any help would be appreciated.
Question: I can't remember the name of this movie - maybe it is a kid's movie. But the father of this family creates a white teddy bear that every kid loves. I think the teddy bear would say "i love you" or something. Then, this nice teddy bear get mass distributed across the country. The very first bear that the father made is actually completely evil and wants to take over the world or something by controlling all the teddy bears. The teddy bear get red eyes when he's evil. What movie is this?
