Question: I watched this horror movie in the 70's I think. It was about this group of college age kids at this house where they get locked in by something supernatural. In one scene, someone gets electrocuted in a window? Anyway, it turns out that in the basement is an entrance to hell, and somehow it got opened. The devil got out and he looked like Col Sanders, an old fat guy in an all white suit. I though it had "House" in the title but I'm not sure. I know it's not "House" with William Katt.NJBakaMM
Question: So I've been trying to find this movie. It is a cartoon movie and I don't really remember much from it. I remember something about a girl getting lost and I remember a scene where she is at some ladies house and the lady was giving her milk and she noticed the girls face on the milk carton. It's not Face On A Milk Carton. Then I think her dad might have flown planes or something, I'm not really sure.
Question: Looking for film where a young man (boy) is normal, but the government wants to give him a lobotomy to make him in line with society. One scene, goes to a house to read books, meets a girl, goes to play chess and gets arrested. All sports are for the handicapped, etc. In the end government asks him to help run things. Anyone know the title or the main actor?neoneel
Question: Okay it is a 70's-80's movie where this one area has been contaminated with something and the animals that are there get really mutated. The only things I remember was a mutated bear was attacking some peoples tents, and that a woman became contaminated because she ate a fish.toby1kenobi
Question: Looking for a movie that has a cartoon within it. It's a 1960's movie with real actors doing a scene which is then reproduced in animation in front of us, the audience. The production of the comic strip is part of the story line. It may be a made-for-TV movie rather than a Hollywood film. The only other thing I remember is that the cameras that the audience can see (that are used to film it for the animation) are mounted on gunstocks which are aimed at the actors. Anyone know what the name is?
Question: Okay so I would like help finding out the name of this movie. I think it was made in the 80's maybe the early 90's. The only thing i remember is it was about a girl who is rich and I think she complains about her life, and so she switches lives with a poor person. I also only remember that there is a scene where a girl skinny dips.
Question: There won't be a specific answer to this question, but I would like to hear thoughts/comments. Why is it that the Twilight series has inspired so many vampire-themed movies, shows, and books (True Blood, Moonlight, The Vampire Diaries, etc.)? The Harry Potter series is also hugely popular, but hasn't led to as many "copycats".
Question: Trying to remember a movie, hope you can help. I only ever saw the movie on TV, I believe in the 80s, it was usually showing on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Set in a huge mansion with very ornate decor (lots of wood, chandeliers and thick carpeting). Guests who are very peculiar have been invited for an overnight dinner. I don't think they know who invited them. They arrive two by two, couples or maybe even a mother/daughter, and they settle into their individual rooms. House may be haunted but it's not scary at all, more of a dark comedy. It's not until dinner they see who the host is. The characters are very over the top, odd and exaggerated. They might even be thinking someone is going to murder them, or someone was murdered and they don't know who it was (this is only a vague recollection, might not be right). I believe the entire movie takes place over just one evening. I can't think of anything else that sticks out and I can't remember anyone who's in it. I think it was really long but that may just be my memory of it. Don't know if any of this can help name the movie.
Question: I am trying to find the name of a movie. I know a bit of the plot: it is set in some fantasy world and there is this teenage girl talking to this teenage boy and they are watching these unicorns. The girl ends up petting the unicorns and she is then chased by goblins or something and winds up being captured by a devil dude.toby1kenobi
Question: I'm trying to find the NAME of an old (ABC?) TV movie, circa 1970's, likely mid 1970's. All I remember is the (basic) plot AND the final shot.PLOT: the main character (Andrew Prine?) has been in accident (?), or was hurt in the military and he has a plate in his head or some sort of surgery was done to his brain. Something is "odd" about the new town he moves into and the main character thinks the Sheriff / Police Chief is controlling the people and might even be doing doing something illegal.Also, the main character falls in love with a mysterious woman in the small town, and through some series of events he finds out that the people of the town are being controlled by outer space travelers who are using the towns people to rebuild their space ship, at night, while they are hypnotized while asleep. The Sheriff and his new love ARE the head aliens. They are using the towns peoples 'bodies' to do the repairs because they don't have physical bodies, they are just beings made of 'energy'. The main character can't be 'hypnotized' because of the plate / surgery to his head. Near the end of the movie he actually sees the people wandering out toward a field where the busted space ship is being repaired.LAST SHOT: the final shot is the main character's body, lying in a field, in broad daylight. He's gone off into outer space (or just his 'life energy' has gone')with the woman with whom he fell in love.Roll Credits. 11:00 o'clock news.I started thinking about this because there was an episode of "Eureka" where the town's people worked on a 'project' at night, while they were hypnotized. Same plot, different out come.ThanksSchteveo
Question: I saw a scary movie many years ago. It could have been made in the late 1930's or 1940's. About a man that was given a shot in his neck and eventually grew another head. All I remember is that the first sign of the head was a eye on the victims shoulder. Would like to know the name of the film.
