Question: I'll try to be as detailed as possible. This is a late 70's, early 80's movie. Tenants at a high rise apartment building were being killed off 1 by 1. The police thought the killer was the night doorman whose name was Vincent, but it turned out to be the day doorman who was jealous of all the attention the night doorman was getting from all the tenants. The night doorman and his catatonic mother were the last victims before the police found out the truth. Also the night doorman had a rich female tenant who had a crush on him and was always trying to invite him up to her place for cake.SAZOO1975
Question: I am trying to find the name of a horror movie that came out in the late 70's or early 80's. All I can remember about the plot was there was a person killing people via the telephone. He would call them, the other person would hear rapid beeping, then the phone would explode in their ear, killing them.SAZOO1975
Question: I'm trying to find a movie I watched in the 90s about a girl who used to hide out in a horses stable when her father was drunk, when she grew up she acted like a horse when she was nervous or frightened. A horse-hand helps her to get over this. Does anyone know what the name of this movie is?
Question: As a child, in the 80's, I saw a film about a man who was cursed to wear a bear's skin/coat. For many years, he was cursed, living in the wilderness. I recall a beautiful woman befriending him. I recall him being bathed, hair cut, beard shaved, nails clipped. I remember the coat being ripped from his flesh. And the end result is him being quite a handsome man. Sounds a lot like Beauty and the Beast, I know.but its not. It is not animated either. Thanks.
Question: I'm trying to remember the name of a movie. All I can remember from it is the bad guy laying on the ground almost dead. Then the good guy (or girl, don't remember) comes over to put him out of his misery by suffocating him. They say something to the effect of "This is more than you deserve" then before the person is dead the good guy changes his mind and the bad guy lives. Can someone please help me?
Question: Hello, I'm trying to find the title of a movie I watched as a child probably around early 90s. Im not really sure what the plot is, but it takes place in the UK I believe and revolves around these children finding the misty end of a rainbow and entering this magical realm. They arrive on a boat and there are people floating (I think) above their boat on this "canal." It is very surreal with flowing music and a lot of flowing colors and mist. This was a favorite of mine back in the day but neither I nor my parents can remember the title. Please, any help is so appreciated. Thanks.
Question: I would like to know the name of a tv show that I saw a few years ago. All I can remember is, in one episode this woman (main character?) went to see the famiily of her boyfriend, and he has a brother who pretends to be retarded after an accident the brother causes, and he feels quilty and looks after him and wears a helmet of some sort. In the end the family find out he is faking it.
Question: I am trying to remember the name of a movie. I think it was about aliens that look like human beings and infect new ones to try to take over the Earth. In the final scene, two aliens, a man and a woman have a human baby in the back seat of a car. They turn around and speak to it in gibberish, showing us that they are aliens.
Question: There's this movie that I've been trying to find that I can't really provide a lot of details about, because I watched it as a kid. I think it's an early 90's movie (definitely before 1996, anyway) or possibly late 80's (89 maybe). It's kind of an action film (sort of), and has a dark-haired, handsome young guy in the lead. The only thing I can remember is that in the movie, he gets a red convertible, and that towards the end, there's a burning (fire) scene, and he has these special shoes that help him stick to the roof (so that he doesn't fall). I know that's a very bad description, but it's all I can remember. Hopefully you can help. I watched it dubbed in French.
Question: I saw a trailer for this movie maybe five or ten years ago. All I remember is that it is a summer camp movie, maybe some type of boy scouts. The only scene I remember is a counselor asking the boys if they brought their cameras. He then steps aside to reveal a naked woman (who I think is also a counselor) and all the boys start taking pictures of her. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Question: Does anyone remember a movie, probably made in the late 70's early 80's somewhere in that time. All I can remember is that its a horror movie, about a little girl who fell in a well and died, its got some rhyme that goes with it but I cannot remember. I also believe that it has some type of clown doll in it also.
Question: I am looking for the name of a movie that I believe was from the 70's. I would assume it was a drama or thriller/horror. I can remember being scared by a clown holding a machete standing in front of a house at night. The front bay window of the house was wide open, with the wind blowing the white sheer curtains around. I think the clown guy got in, murdered a girl in that room, then left. Does anyone recognize this description?
Question: Google can't seem to help me with this, so I'll have to ask you. A movie I saw sometime in the early 2000s, I think, featured a woman who has a little girl. This girl, who's autistic, is obsessed with building towers from playing cards or building blocks, to reach her father, whom she thinks is in the moon. The father had died in a climbing accident. Ring any bells? The movie's probably filmed between the years 1995-2002.
Question: A movie as I recall is a horror/thriller. A man brings his newlywed wife home where his father and grandfather live. The marriage was a farce as the family needed her for some experiment, possibly to bring someone back from the dead. One scene I can think of that someone would remember is where the grandfather (who is dying) asks his grandson's wife to undress for him.
Question: I am looking for information on a movie possibly filmed 1995-2002 that featuring a woman with a little girl who is autistic and is obsessed with building towers from playing cards or building blocks. She hopes in doing this she will reach her father believed to be on the moon whom died in a climbing accident.
