Question: Really need help with the name of a movie. The only scene I know of is a guy is swimming in his pool when suddenly a shackle appears from a secret compartment on the pools floor. The shackle shoots forward and gets attached to the man's ankle and then the guy is pulled underwater. When the man dies, the shackle is released and is quickly pulled back into its secret compartment.
Question: A wife is killed by her husband in their kitchen, but the cops don't think the husband did it - the only person who thinks he did is the girl who lives next door. Then she finds the wife's wedding ring on the floor in the kitchen where she was killed. The husband later comes into the girl's room and kidnaps her and takes her to her school.Jamie L Biancardi
Question: Think this might be a Cheech and Chong movie but can't be sure because it has a supernatural element to it. Two guys end up going to a house and meet two women who claim that they can never leave. One scene in the movie has some white curtains suddenly being torn down and take the figure of a man which then puts on a top hat, grabs a cane and begins dancing. Another scene has the women finally explaining why they can't leave the house. A curse has been placed on them and as long as they stay inside the house they will remain young but, if they leave they will begin to get old and eventually die. The only way they can leave the house is by taking a small green pill that enables them to stay young for several hours.
Question: This is a movie about a mature man (maybe a teacher or journalist) who is jailed by a tyrant government. While in jail he teaches a young man how to play certain board game. The young man gets out of jail and creates a revolution that dethrones the tyrant by using the knowledge from this game.
Question: There was a movie I saw several years ago. The movie had three friends, two boys and a girl, traveling to another country to go hiking through a forest. While there, they are attacked by a wild animal and the girl gets taken by a boy and held in a room in an abandoned house but soon manages to escape. Eventually, one of the boys gets killed and the other boy, along with the girl discover the truth. A priest had been holding a boy hostage at a very early age and began beating him severely. The boy had eventually grown up feral and vicious and the priest then let him out into the forest where the boy would kill anyone he saw. The boy who had abducted the girl witnessed the entire thing as a child and she realises that he was trying to save her from the wild boy.
Question: I can't remember the name of this movie. It is in B&W and I am guessing made in the mid 50's. It is a story of Mexican children that live near a horse racing track. They are befriended by a man who visits their sister and he is a gambler. The children get enough money to make a wager and the man gets the ticket for them. It turns out that the ticket is a winner. The movie ends with the man making his way to the ticket window to collect the winnings, but dies of a heart attack before he can do so.award57
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 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. Thanks.Arris
Question: I am looking for the name of a black and white film about a married man who is trying to help a woman in a town run by a crime boss, escape the abusive relationship. His wife misunderstands the relationship and calls the crime boss to ask him to keep his wife away from her husband which may have gotten the woman killed.
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: 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

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: 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: Need help in knowing the name of a TV series of hauntings in America. One episode dealt with a man who back in Puritan days tried to kill his girlfriend after he returned from a voyage to discover that she was now married to somebody else, so he shoots her in the stomach and then himself in the head. She lives but he dies. Another episode has a man with a son who married a woman who also had a son. The man has a farm and while dying from a disease, he makes the woman promise that when he dies, the farm will go to his son and not hers. She promises but, when the man dies, the woman goes back on her word and gives the farm to her son. A few days later, sand begins appearing on the farm until eventually, there is so much sand that the woman and the two boys had to leave it.
