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.
Question: I am looking for a title of a movie that I believe was made in the 80's, possibly early 90's. All I can remember is that there was a boy who had a lot of junk, and wanted to get rid of it, but someone didn't want him to and told him it was valuable. I also remember there being a little rat-like creature, and them using the term "scuz-bucket" quite often. I believe at one point there was a tunnel of some sorts, and the creature coming out of behind a dumpster? I vividly remember a point where the boy was at a gas station, and had a station wagon type vehicle full of all this supposed "junk." I appreciate the help.
Question: I am looking for the name of a movie. I saw it in the 80's, and it was about a white pony (I think) or dog. The animal lives with a child, and then gets away and another child owns it, and then at the end there is a scene where the animal is put between the two children in a ring and they have to call its name and the animal goes to the true owner.
Question: Can anyone please help me with the title of this film? I remember seeing it on TV as a child around the mid eighties in the UK although I think it was an American film. There was a family of five driving in their car at night. The three young siblings were sat in the back, two boys and a girl. One girl is sat in the middle. The boy and girl on either side tie her shoelaces together but then they have a car accident and because of this she doesn't get out in time and is killed. In time, the girl comes back to haunt her younger siblings in their bunkbeds at night. I was fascinated by this film as a child and would love to see it again. It is also sentimental as I watched it with my family.
Question: This is a black-and-white movie, where a man is staying in a house that is haunted. After a woman in the house takes him to his room, he notices her talking to a painting of a man and then kissing it good night. Earlier in the movie, when the man was saying goodbye to his wife, she didn't want him to touch her, so that her coat and hair wouldn't get dirty/messed up. I think she got on a train, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know what movie this is?
Question: I am looking for the title of a movie. All I can remember is that it had college kids in it and it was about a legend of a man and his car buried under the football field. Turns out local legend was right and the car existed. They dug the football field up and drove out a red car (possibly 57 Chevy?) and raced/dragged it against another car. I think the movie was made in the 80's or 90's. Any help with the title of this movie would be greatly appreciated as it has baffled me for many years. Thank you.
