Question: A crime show episode when a little boy is kidnapped from his bedroom window at night. The mother goes into wake him up but realises he is gone. The police investigate and realise the window was flipped. A male and female detective look for him and they are left clues with pictures of the boy with writing on them. Soon, they know the kidnapper is a girl. They look everywhere for him.
Question: Half color/half black and white - foreign romance. A teenage boy and girl can seemingly not be together. At one point in the movie, the boy sneaks out of his house to go to the girl's at night. He sneaks in through her window, but before getting in to bed with her, he lifts up the covers. Her naked back and ass are shown, and he gets into bed. In the morning, the boy has to quickly hide in her closet because the parents are looking. What is the name of this movie?
Question: This movie wasn't Christine and it wasn't The Car, but it had a very similar plot. The movie was about a car that appeared out of nowhere and began abducting children but only some of them would be found. It's unknown what happened to the children who were still missing. A woman, who I believe was a bus driver, had a daughter who was kidnapped by the demonic vehicle so she goes in pursuit. When she finally tracks down the car, her daughter is seen halfway out of the window screaming for help.
Question: Does anyone know the name of this movie? I believe it was late 80's, early 90's. There are people in a van and they have a sick boy with them. They get out to search the area leaving the boy with a man, possibly his father. When they return the boy is eating the man. I guess it might have been a zombie movie, but for sure some type of pandemic flick.mrcj5150
Question: Two teenage boys fall in love with the same girl. A boy often goes skateboarding. He plays the "knife game." He gives a girl a chain with a pendant in the shape of heart. He is run over by a truck and dies. The girl visits his grave with the other boy. She hangs the chain around the neck of the angel statue from the tomb of the boy.Arris
Question: A mature man is a white-collar criminal. He meets a young man. The young man wants to "work" with him, but the mature man prefers to work alone. The young man insists so much. The white-collar criminal decides to do one last heist. He engages with a mature blonde woman. He arranges to meet with her, but the robbery goes wrong. I believe that the young man dies. The mature man is apprehended by the police. He sees his girlfriend, waiting for the white-collar criminal. She stands in the doorway to a building. He goes by a patrol car. She doesn't see him.
Question: Here's a tough one. I'm searching for a color, live-action, grade "B" sci-fi movie from the 1970s about a modern home in the desert Southwest that seems to be at the center of a time/space vortex. The family (I recall a father and son, but there could be more) is terrified because they never know what is waiting for them outside: It might be a Tyrannosaurus Rex from the distant past or an alien invader from the distant future or anything in-between. This was not a comedy and it actually had pretty good special effects for a "B" movie back then. What is this film?Charles Austin Miller
Question: A French or European movie, during the Second World War. A man is shot and dies. His father goes to identify him and takes a photo. He retouches the photo of his son and gives his granddaughter this photo. The grandfather tells stories to the granddaughter of his son in the war. He says his father is alive and helps Resistance fighters. His father becomes famous. The grandfather does lots of things to sustain the lie: he produces a bomb.Arris
Question: The film is a story told from the point of view of a teenage boy. He is being interrogated by the FBI or the police about another teenage boy that kidnapped some girls. He murdered a girl's parents. This boy is walking strangely because a man shot him in his knees. At the end of the movie, the boy takes abducted girls to a house and a couple get to this house. It seems to me that the woman was pregnant.Arris
Question: I am looking for the title of a movie...I believe from the late 80s or early 90s it is a period drama...turn of the century. A young woman marries an older man with a beard. They have several children and one of the children is injured in I believe a hunting accident and becomes blind (I think).
Question: There was a movie that I think took place in China. The movie was about a woman who notices that when she gets a bill mailed to her house showing her credit card purchases, it shows purchases she never made. She tries to fight the credit card company but with no luck. She then hires a private investigator who tells her to go out and buy some stuff and he would monitor her purchases to find out what's happening. She does and when she buys something, the PI and his secretary are shocked to show that while the woman is making purchases at one place, simultaneously some one is also making purchases at other stores across the city. It's eventually discovered that someone is making cloned credit cards and is selling them for a profit.
Question: There's a film that's very similar to 2005's The Pacifier and I cannot remember what it was called. The premise was nearly the same as The Pacifier, but the kids were a bit older and one of them was asthmatic - there was a scene in it where somebody threw his inhaler away either off a bridge or next to a river and the asthmatic kid broke down into tears. I think it may be newer than The Pacifier.Neil Jones
