Question: I have no clue what this movie is, as I woke up to it in the middle of the night on IFC a few years ago... What I recall is there is a young woman who carries poison around, killing everyone including the husband of another family that helped her steal millions of dollars. He knows he will die, so he hides the money in stuffed teddy bears to be found by his wife in his child's bedroom. The movie ends with her basically hitchhiking, an old man in a truck stops to help her-she smiles after she gets in and looks at her bottle of poison, he smiles as he covers a woman's body again with a tarp that is in the bed of his pick up. It is not much to go on, but I was violently ill, this is what I recall and I hope you are able to help me. Thanks.
Question: I saw the movie in late 80s but it may be of earlier years. I only remember few fragments and most likely it's an Italian movie: a woman is cheating on her husband, she goes to an outside café and pulls a cigarette, some men give her a light and she agrees on sex for money. They go to a hotel, go upstairs and men have sex with her one after another. She gets pregnant and is murdered by her husband and put in the car trunk. Can you remember the name of the movie?
Question: This movie aired on either Showcase or BRAVO. It was a period movie where two women went into the city wearing masks essentially looking for sex. The next scene showed one of the women with a man against a wall. Later in the movie, she sees this same man injured and I think she is helping him or tending to him somehow. I think this was made sometime in the 90s since I recall it looking like a fairly recent movie around 1998 or 1999.Basia82
Question: I'm looking for a movie, it's probably before the 2000's but I don't know when exactly. I was a child when I saw it and only remember a little bit. A boy is riding his bike in a wooded area and the tire gets stopped by a fallen tree. A creepy man appears and the boy looks scared. The next thing I remember is the boy tied up in a cave and the father coming to save the boy.
Question: I am having trouble tracking down a movie I saw a couple of times when I was rather young. The clearest thing I can remember about it is the beginning of the movie where there was an earthquake or some sort of attack on the city due to some magical reason. I remember they had magical lifts and they were made of rock. It was all animated and I believe the style was similar to "Flight of Dragons." Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.Sir_Everard
Question: About the year 2000, I watched a movie about a family of four; a mom, dad, little brother and big sister moving into a house somewhere in the forest, with a lake just in front of it. When they arrived at the new house, the girl went into a little shed where make up, and mirrors were placed. When the girl looked in the mirror, she saw an old lady starring at her, and the girl freaked out. In the end, the family threw a bouquet out on the lake, and a green old hand, with long, thin fingers got above the water and dragged it down, slowly. What film is this?
Question: I have been looking for a movie that I watched when I was younger. All I remember was that it was a movie about music where a famous teenage singer falls in love with an average school girl whilst on a tour. Together they smuggle him into her school and they hang out together. I am really wondering what the movie is called and would love to watch it again.
Question: Trying to remember a movie I saw when I was a teenager on IFC. The movie was in Italian or another European language, set in the future, about a boy who can't go outside or he dies. I only watched the end. In the movie he's always stuck indoors so he talks to call girls on some webcam. The thing though is that you don't see the main character's face. It just shows the people he's talking to. When talking on the webcam he falls in love with a call girl. And vice versa, then he breaks it to her that he can't go outside. Then she shuns him, he ties to get in contact with her again but he can't reach her. So feeling heart broken he gets frustrated with his disease. The last part was sad because he calls his mom and asks her how's the weather outside that's when his mother knows he's going to go outside meaning certain death, she just tells him to put on a coat, it's chilly outside. The last part just shows the security camera of the boy about the go outside. Just about when he's going outside the movie ends.
Question: I want to know the name of the movie in which there is a family trapped with black magic or something, they had been transferred to another dimension, found themselves standing on an old rock wall and had to play games or answer questions, and every time they passed, they moved along and climbed up high. I remember there was a woodcraft or voodoo doll for each member of this family.midsummer
Question: I'm looking for the name of a movie my husband watched in the 80's. It's black and white, he said it came on one night after Car 54 on Nick at Night. He only remembers the ending as a cop was in a car, and it goes into the water. It's not very much info but if anyone has a clue as to what it is I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
Question: I was very young when I saw this movie and only remember flashes. There is a scene I remember where a beautiful man is looking around a corner of a very old fashioned home, the walls were grey. There is also a beautiful young girl whom I think he is in love with. There's another man (I don't really remember) her boyfriend or perhaps her brother. And the young beautiful man is an angel, and in the end I think he is killed. I just remember all of the towns people gathering and lighting candles (by a river I think). The beautiful boy also had shoulder length blonde hair. And the girl's hair I think was brown. It could have been blonde. I'm not sure. But I know I loved this movie a lot and would really like to know what it is called. Thank you.
Question: I'm looking for the name of a movie that I saw on HBO in the late 80s or early 90s. It was a western movie with a teenage or young adult girl who runs away with a group of men on horseback for adventure. I want to say the name of her horse was something like Honeybelle and the title of the movie may have been "The Adventures of..." Any suggestions?
Question: Hi, I watched a movie in the 90's (I think) which had young characters seeking to adopt a child, but the investigator came at the same time as either a drug deal gone bad or maybe a home invasion. This was a dark-ish comedy with the young male character moving and hiding a body and other things happening along the same lines, and at the end they decide to forget it or just go on vacation or move. I'm not really doing justice to the movie as it was pretty good. So if anyone could help me with this vague question it would be appreciated. My last question here was answered spot on, so you guys are good at helping out, and thanks for that help.barsoon
Question: What is the movie where there was a kid having a birthday party and they live in the middle of nowhere, but these bad guys come and take them hostage and one of the boys saves the day? Unfortunately those are all the details I can remember. It is from around the late 80's or sometime in the 90's.Jennduhon
