Drowned boy, mystery solved years later

Google has failed me…

Year – late 80s

My grandparents were watching some movie or tv show after they thought I was asleep for the night. I must have stood in the hallway for a long time watching without them realizing. My grandparents were fairly “proper” people, so I expected this to be an episode of Masterpiece Mystery or Poirot, but I can’t find it. Anyway…

In English, possibly black and white, maybe only black and white to signify flashback?

An adult male – maybe priest? – drowns a young boy in a bathtub. The bathroom is not modern. Rough wood plank floors and a tub with feet. The scene involves watch sloshing over the edge of the tub. During the drowning, a necklace or rosary gets washed down the drain. I don’t know if this was a flashback or what but the next piece I remember is years later, somehow people find the necklace/rosary in the septic tank. Maybe the building burned down? Not sure.



Sci-Fi movie where a hospital turns out to be a spaceship?

This is an English language American movie from within the last decade.

Two guys and a girl are looking for a tracker/radio signal. They find it outside a dilapidated shack. There are bright lights and one of the guys wakes up in a hospital. He’s in a wheelchair and there are people in biohazard suits. He’s not allowed to leave.

At one point he talks to his friend through a vent. At least the two guys escape, maybe the girl also I can’t remember. They are chased by the military/biohazard guys from┬áthe hospital in a big truck. It looks like earth but they come to an invisible edge/border.

In the end, there’s only the first guy left. I think his friend sacrificed himself to help. In the end he realises that he’s actually on a giant spaceship in the middle of space and then it ends.
