Looking for the title of a comedy, but am unsure of the year, maybe in the late 90s or later. A man witnessed a murder and after the murderer left, he went to try and help the guy. While he was standing over the dead body he realized he looked guilty of the murder. He spends the movie running from the cops, but everywhere he goes the killer and he are taking the same route. The killer thinks he is following him. It is really funny, but can't remember any more details. Hope you can help.janna_phelps
I'm looking for the name of a movie (it probably came out in the early to mid 90s) about two kids that steal a car and go on a joyride. If I remember correctly, they were young, like 8-10. I could have sworn that the title was two names like Sam & Mike, or something like that. I've just about given up hope of finding the name of this movie. Thanks for your time.
I'm looking for the title of a movie I saw on TV in the mid-90s, which must have been produced in the late 80s or early 90s. The film is set in California and is about a man who rescues a woman who is being pursued by some kind of cult (satanic I think). In one scene the man has a strange encounter in an occult bookshop. The twist is that the woman is in fact a member of the cult and the man is the sacrifice; the cult's ritual requires that the sacrifice arrives at the sacrifice site voluntarily, which the man does thinking he is helping the woman. In the final scene, the woman approaches another man for help, and the cycle is about to repeat itself. Does anyone know this movie?triplewin
I'm looking for the title of a movie I saw, but I can only remember one scene. I think it was a gangster movie, and it might have come out in the early to mid-90s. Anyway, the scene starts with a man with his wife or girlfriend. She is (I think) talking to him with her back turned, but when she turns around, he punches her full force. He proceeds to beat her up including throwing her over a table and slamming her into something glass (a mirror or bottles). Eventually, she stabs him in the foot with a corkscrew, and ends up shooting him. I remember it because the beating to her is really brutal and realistic. Can anyone help me out? Anything would be greatly appreciated.MMRichter
This is a movie on HBO, Cinemax or Showtime in, I believe, the 90s. It's about a guy, I think his name was Harry, and he gets hypnotized or possessed by the soul of Caligula or something. Anyway, all he has to do is look at women and they get off. It's not a porn and there is little nudity, surprisingly. Three scenes I remember are: Harry's walking in the desert in a Roman soldier costume and a beautiful woman pulls up in a convertible to pick him up, he gives the stare and she "finishes". Harry gets home, gives his wife the look from behind, she gets off on the floor, then seeing Harry hadn't touched her, she says, "Did I just get off!?" And finally, Harry's in a strip club, looks at one of the strippers he knows, she gets off and gets mad running off the stage. I remember just about everything but the name. Please, anyone, help.edgewater3
Years ago I remember watching a two part movie on HBO, STARZ or some other movie channel like that on Comcast's on demand cable. It was about two people who (I think) were having to stay awake because creatures in the dark would come and get them. I think the creatures stalked them and branded them or something, like how we tag animals to track their movement. The creatures branded or tagged them by a red blemish on the skin, which below the blemish was a bone-hook type thing. These monsters lived in the shadows and I can only remember a few scenes so bare with me please. 1. There are 3 characters that I can remember; a guy, his girlfriend and, I think, his ex-girlfriend. In one scene, the guy thinks the creatures have "tagged" his girlfriend because she has a weird mark on her. She's missing the next day. 2. The "ex-girlfriend" goes to a bathroom in a bar and pulls out the bone from her temple. 3. In the final scene the ex-girlfriend ends up in an asylum. The camera pans into a closet and you see all these monsters and then she is dragged into a closet by the creatures. Sorry for the giant post, but I have to find the movie again. Thanks for the help.
I'm looking for the title of a film about a group of scientists who use a burrowing machine to travel deep into the earth. They discover a cavernous world of wonders but discover that nothing can reproduce there. The rabbits they've brought along mate but all their issue is still born. The film was shot in the Carlsbad Caverns and aired repeatedly on television in the fifties.
I remember a movie when I was a kid that I can't find the title to. I remember things like there was this device. I think it was rectangular in shape. In one scene, a guy is driving with the device in his car down a desolate highway and the power lines are like blowing up because he has the device in his car. I think I remember things like a guy walking into a building only to find fog, and barbarians. There might have been something with a high school too.fyrmn14
I remember seeing a movie on TV once. It involved these hijackers who hijacked a plane (no 9/11 movies). This guy on the plane, when threatened with a gun by the hijackers tells them he has a family but they kill him anyway. After that, all I remember is a part where the hijackers are at a fair, looking for someone. Something about a ferris wheel. If anyone could help me, I'd greatly appreciate it.MooCow
I once saw an old (1930's) comedy movie with a train. I remember two specific scenes: 1. A donkey was standing too close to the track, and could not be made to move. So the engineer gets off the locomotive and pulls the track aside, and the train made a curve around the donkey. 2. At one point the wood that the locomotive used was almost gone. So the engineer and the fireman started throwing rocks to people living close to the railroad track. These started to throw back wooden blocks because that was all they could find. In the next scene, the fireman and the engineer would collect all the wooden blocks with which the train could continue. The train had a caboose at the end and the guy had a horn that he would blow when something was wrong. I always thought that Buster Keaton played in it, but I've checked all his movies and I can't find it in the list. Does anybody have any idea?
I cannot remember a movie that I watched sometime ago. I think it was about a son looking for his father, or going to meet his father, and he has his mother in the car. She is remembering his life since his contraception, which was in a car, and then later with her in the hospital giving birth to a son instead of a daughter, which she wanted. Her best friend gives birth to a daughter. The mothers are still friends, but the one who is remembering is always frustrated with her son. I cannot remember the title, but I think it has something to do with 'surrounded by boys' or 'living with boys'. Can anyone help?
I am looking for a film that tells the story of a man who sees dead people. He has a coloured boy following him with soil coming out of his mouth and who has hands clasped out in front of him like he's holding something. He keeps being drawn to some woodland and sees the coloured boy there. He doesn't know why. The thing the boy has in his hands is a bird's nest and eventually the man realises that he's being shown how this boy died. He was part of a group of boys that got taken to this woodland area as part of a trip from a boys home or something similar, and they were all being abused. The name of the boys' home was Bird's Nest or Blackbirds. The boy had been killed and buried in the woods. I thought this film was Stir of Echoes with Kevin Bacon but it isn't. It's very similar though.
I saw this movie in the 80s, but can't remember any of the actors' names or the title. It is about a bunch of criminals, like drug dealers, car thieves and stuff that get caught, sent to jail and then instead of going to prison they get sent to this island, where they have to survive, work together and eventually go back home to LA, I think.
I am looking for a movie that has a scene where a man or teen is wandering in the woods and comes across a woman in a cottage or trailer or small house. She has little lambs running around and kills one for her guest. Does anyone remember this scene and this movie? Thanks.sassybell
Recently watched a western movie, can't remember the actors names. The plot was about a man that died and left his ranch to his best friend. The best friend was to run it until the son was responsible enough to handle it. The friend went to Kansas to get a wife for the boy so that he would grow up and become a man. I believe he got her at a place called Hannah's. After many trials the friend decides that the boy should have the ranch, so he gives it to him and heads back to Kansas to Hannah's to hook up with Hannah. Does anyone know the name of this movie or the actors that played in it?
I saw a movie a while ago and I was wandering if you know the title. The plot is complicated and I'll use X and Y to explain it better. It's about a man (X) who is killed and reincarnates into a baby. It turns out that the father of the baby is the murderer (Y) and X wants revenge. The only way to do that is to commit suicide, and X tries many times, but every time his plans fail (the baby wants to drown in the bathtub, but his father stops him, or tries to pull down the heated iron, but the babysitter saves him and she arrives at the hospital with her hands burned). X had a girlfriend in his previous life and she is pregnant-Y decides to help her. At the end X discovers that Y is not the murderer, but in that moment X is reincarnated again, this time being the baby of his girlfriend. I'm sorry for writing so many explanations and I hope you'll read it. And another thing: I think it's a French movie, but I don't know for sure. Can you help me, please? Thanks in advance.kitty
I saw a movie in the early 90's about a German concentration camp. It was a disturbing movie depicting happenings in the camp. I remember seeing people being led in to gas chambers etc. One particular scene I remember was a little naked boy trying to run away. The German guard let his dog loose and let it chase down the kid killing him. I need to know the title.Mortug
