About

“I Remember This Movie…” is a spinoff from 366 Weird Movies, a project dedicated to creating a list of the 366 Weirdest Movies Ever Made (that’s one for every day of the year, with a spare for leap years).

Running that site, we began to get a lot of emails and comments that began, “I remember this movie…” and ended with “can you help me?”

We tried a couple different methods of fielding such questions, but eventually the queries got so voluminous that we couldn’t keep up with them. Users began helping out other users, out of the goodness of their hearts.

Gradually, the popularity of the “What Was That Weird Movie?” page on the site grew until it constituted about 50% of all the site’s traffic. So in October of 2013 we decided a spinoff site was in order, and that’s how irememberthismovie.com came to be.

We’re excited about “I Remember This Movie…” and hope the site will grow, continue to add features, and become the foremost “what was that movie?” site on the Net!

  1. um, i misunderstood something to start and may have posted the same question 3 times without adding description. wooops. i’m going to do it correctly now. wasn’t sure who to inform but here ya go.

  2. So how do I find my do I find my question if I haven’t registered to get updates and such? How do I know when it’s up and running?

    1. You just have to check the front page every now and then. Newest submissions will be at the top. All posts are approved by a human, but it may take up to 12-24 hours to appear if no one is online to approve a post. As of now we are current with all submissions so your post should be visible.

  3. I posted a question on a movie about 6 months ago and it was answered cause I remember reading what the answer was but I can’t remember the name of the movie again how do I find out the questions I have posted myself

  4. I saw a movie (I think mid to late 80’s). It was about people who had to retake their drivers test. I remember a scene where the instructor told a female student to get her rear checked (meaning her car) but she thought he meant her rear. So she goes to the garage so they can check her rear and they said it needed oiled. She undresses and gets ready for the machanics to oil her butt.

  5. How do I know if my reply went through? I pressed submit but the page just refreshed itself I think. Is it going to be reviewed?

    1. If your submission is successful you will see a message that reads “Success! Thank you for your submission. Your post will be approved shortly.” If you didn’t see that you should have seen an error message. All posts are currently approved so if you aren’t seeing yours on the front page try again.

  6. I saw this movie many years ago (possibly a western or a country style movie) where a man married this woman (I think he married her) but she already had a son. I don’t recall if she was a widow.

    I vaguely remembered the man disciplined the boy (possibly in a barn but I’m not certain). When the boy’s mother found out about the discipline, she treated the man very badly no matter how good the man was.

    Towards the end of the film, the woman was either pregnant or became very ill where the man carried her in his arms for miles in the rain to a doctor. It was at night from memory.

    When the woman found out what the man did she forgave him again.

    I always thought the movie was called “A woman scorned” and whilst there are several films of this name, there doesn’t seem to be anything on this plot.

    Can anybody please, please help me.

    Thank you.

  7. I remember watching this movie with my grandma but I think it was like a African movie and there was a boy and I think he was like famous or a prince and I don’t if there was like a festival going on and then I know he liked this girl and another girl liked him but he didn’t like her I think she was like ugly or something but at the end of the movie the girl he liked was dead I think by this man and so the boy Carries her off like by the sunset and then the girl that likes him Is jealous when she sees the girl in his arms she doesn’t know that the girl is dead so she gets a rock and throws it at them to try to kill the girl but instead she kills the boy
    I know it was like African or something cuz they were wearing those type of clothes plz gel it’s been bothering me for years

  8. I have always thought of this website as being family friendly for the most part, but I am really turned off by a recent post regarding a pornographic x-rated movie and the use of the F-word numerous times in the post. I am sure there are other x-rated forums out there where pornography aficionados can ask questions regarding their favorite porn.

    1. You have a point, hatterasman. I am going to mask the offensive language, but leave the post up for now (I’ll delete the duplicate from the “endless chat” thread, however).

      As for adult movie requests in general, I’m not sure how to handle them. I think you’re right, a porno forum would be a better choice for such a searcher. But I don’t want to make a blanket rule that people can’t use us to search for an “adult” movie, if they use tasteful descriptions, as there are some that arguably have artistic value and mainstream exposure. This has not become a problem in over a year of operation so I don’t want to create a rule at this point: we’ll see if the issue recurs.

      1. Thank you. I simply do not think this is the place for porn aficionados to discuss there favorite porn. Why pollute such a wonderful website with such discussions. If someone likes viewing porn, good for them. I really do not want to read about it on a website that I thought was about mainstream movies. There are enough pornography related websites and forums out there without movie lovers having to be exposed to discussions about porn here. Perhaps if the poster had written a sensible and tasteful description of the porno that he was inquiring about, it wouldn’t have been so bad, but instead, he chose to include a graphic obscenity laced description of particular movie scenes. One of the problems with pornography is that it desensitizes so many of it’s viewers into thinking that graphic sexual conversation is normal when in fact, it isn’t. Perhaps the poster in question honestly saw nothing wrong with his post. That would not surprise me. I have worked with people who viewed porn on a regular basis, and it showed during conversations with them. Some people refer to it as “shop talk”, which is fine, but my opinion is that it has no place here. While it may be possible, I would think it would be difficult to describe a pornographic movie without offending those who would prefer not to be exposed to it. Again, it’s just my opinion, but once you open the door to discussions about “adult” pornographic movies, I fear that this website will deteriorate rapidly.

  9. I have been trying (sorry if this has resulted in multiple postings there) to respond to the “Fat Man on an Escalator” question and get nothing posted there – single link in the post, so it shouldn’t be that.

  10. There was a movie with some girls go to an old abandoned house to make rituals ’cause they’re new at college, and there’s one black, one brunette with glasses (I guess) and one blonde. They even eat egg yolks, but there’s some demon in the house, and he possesses the blonde. She dies in the end, and the ambulance takes the other two to the hospital, but we can see the black one is possessed as the brunette screams… do you know what’s the name?

  11. I am looking for a movie that I think was made for TV in the 90’s. The story is about a small coastal town that one night loses connection with the outside world because a fog or mist envelops the town. No tv, Internet, phone, etc. There shows up a creature who gives the people of the town an ultimatum, either turn over a child, drawn by chance, to the creature to raise or everyone in the town will die. The creature somehow hints in a flashback that the lost colony of Roanoke disappeared because they did not head his warning to give him a child. The town does end up drawing lots to choose a child and the movie ends with the creature raising the child in, I think, New York City. The child is destined to one day become a creature to do the same to another town.

  12. Hi i have submitted a post and this really awesome person answered me and i want to mark the post as solved. how do i do that?

    1. Can you tell me what operating system and browser you are using? It works for me but I can’t tell what other people are using. In the meantime I am manually sending a temporary password via email (it will come from 366weirdmovies.com).

  13. I saw a movie as a child about a professor who had a daughter and she was selected to study under a conductor she fell in love just to return home and marry a boy from her childhood she had a daughter who also would study under the same conductor and instead of her daughter playinging in in front of a large crowed she reappears to play.

  14. Hi all, I’m new to this site so can someone explain how the solving process works? I’m just curious because I’m certain that I solved a few older posts the other day, but nothing happened. Does it just take awhile or does the author of the post have to confirm that the movie guess is correct before admin marks it as solved? Thanks!

  15. I cant remember the name of a movie from the late 60’s or early 70’s but it was a comedy and there was a cemetery scene with 2 guys. I thought the younger guy was bruno kirby but imdb doesnt show any movies that fit. Any ideas. Thanks

  16. Just wanted to let you know that I got a quick and correct reply for the movie I was searching for. I am reading other requests to see if I can help someone.

    1. I assume you also mentioned it in the thread for the movie in question? I don’t see any other comments under this username. (It’s OK to change usernames, just wanted to be sure you thanked the solver so we can credit them).

  17. Sorry, I missed the part where it has to get approved and posted duplicates so delete those, they’re the same, thank you! Have a nice day!

  18. thanks so much for hosting and maintaining this website – it’s is amazing; there were so many movies that me and brothers watched together growing up but we were too young to remember the actual title 😀 keep up with the good work!

    1. Thank you! But the real thanks goes to the folks who donate their time and knowledge to help others find their movies. Without them hosting and maintaining the website would be useless.

  19. It was a movie set in the 90s or the early 2000s something like that i can’t remember and also there was kids basically a boy and a girl running somewhere and the boy finds his grand mother a zombie undead maybe his grand mother or his grand father i can’t really remember but his tells the girl that this is his grand something, and they were on the woods i think it was a cemetery and i believe that the movie was set in the halloween because in almost the final scenes of the movie a female wearing a ape/monkey/gorilla mask, appears to be a monster because two bug or flys with green light enters the eyes of the mask and becomes part of her and than she open the mask, all the sudden the people screams when they see her face, i think that i can describe it as skull with two lightning green eyes, then the zombies or the monster smash the door where the people are staying and somehow a big dude tries to kill that female lightning green eyed monster but when he breaks her she just repair herself, i believe that he crashed her bone or something but than she repairs it and she than describes the whole story and than the end

  20. I am looking for a movie similar to the brain that would not die it is also about a female disembodied head and other limbs but st the end the end of the movie when her friend finds her the head keeps saying “bury me bury me

  21. I need help finding a movie title. It’s a British movie about a British family. One day while the dad was at work and the daughter was at school, the mom, while standing in her living room, suddenly found that her feet were not touching the ground, making her unable to walk. Her legs would just swing instead. When her family came home, they tried to pull her down without success. They had the neighbors and everyone trying to figure out what to do. The next day they found that she was an inch or so higher, and continued to slowly rise constantly. Her family and friends had to do everything for her as far as feeding her and changing her clothes. After a month or so, they had to saw a hole in the ceiling as she rose to the second floor. Then eventually they sawed a hole in the second floor ceiling, and then through the roof! As she continued to ascend above their house, they got help from the local fire department with their bucket ladder to help fill her coat with food and drinks. Until one day, after reaching a height of a few hundred feet, she decided to tell everyone, no more help. She has become comfortable with the idea of continuing to ascend high above England, through the atmosphere, to her demise.
    I can’t remember the details of what went on throughout the movie, but I found it to be interesting enough to want to purchase it, if I can find it. I thought it may have had a one word title like, Ascend or Upwards.

  22. I keep trying to post about a movie I need remembering but it hasn’t shown up even after weeks. Do I need to be more patient or am I doing something wrong? It was a movie about a girl finding some markets/flower shop at night.

    1. We have no firm rules in place. The only thing I can think of is unplotted porn films; I have allowed people to post questions about adult films with plots if the descriptions are tasteful.

  23. I submitted my post without a title. (I put my name instead.) Title could be: “French Director Film Set in China.”

Got something to say?
