60s or 70s movie…a boy named “Spider”

I recall watching a movie multiole times in my childhoof in the 80s. Now I’m pretty sure the movie is a late 60s or 70s film. It was in English. There were 3 or 4 children/teen primary characters. One of them was an older boy named “Spider”. I recall a few different scenes of them in a boat with an outboard engine, as well as what I think was a tower on an island…but I’m a bit hazy from there on out.

 

Thanks!

Great site!

cheating husband/father

the movie was about a man who cheated on his wife. the woman he was cheating with did not know that he had a family, and i think she played some type of instrument (piano or cello or something). The wife shows up while the lady is practicing and confronts her about it and shows her a picture of their nine year old daughter. The lady is in shock so both her and the wife play tricks and schemes on the husband. I remember one of the schemes was wearing a Darth Vader (or something?) mask and prank calling him. Another scheme involved zoo animals in the house.

a weird asian film thats bothered me for years and im not kidding when i say weird

ok this had to have been anywhere from 2001-2006 it was late one night i was turning through channels and i flipped to Showtime Beyond which at time has some odd ball movies on even some anime if i remember right. anyways i saw this asian film( probably Japanese) on which i didn’t realize there was only 10-15 mins left. It seems interesting so i stay and watch little did i know what was going to happen and take a very weird turn. This girl was at her place and she seemed to have made a friend with a round ball like alien thing no big deal. one moment shes talking to it the next shes naked on the ground with this thing with her and a lone tentacle comes out of it heading slowly straight between her legs and she didn’t even try to stop it. It seemed like she wanted to mate with it for it was the last of its kind? then it ended leaving me wondering what the heck just happened? and what was that? That totally caught me off guard for i thought it was some horror film. I don’t remember all what was said just what happened will forever be etched in my mind.  Its bothered me enough that now many years later i have to find out what it was called and if ut was indeed a horror film. I really don’t know if it can be found,but i thought i would try here. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Mysterious SUV with artificial intelligence

I saw this movie on TV around 2002 or 2003. It’s possible that the movie is older than that, but I’m not sure. It was in English and the movie was in color.

The movie centers on a man (I remember that he was blond, he might have been named Bob) who is driving and as he is passing a nearby town the motor of his car breaks. He goes to a cafe to ask for help and hears a payphone ringing. He answers the phone and hears a strange voice.

Later he goes to get his car fixed at the local mechanic’s but he isn’t working that day so the man has to spend the day in the town.

As the movie continues he can’t leave the town because every time he goes to the mechanic’s they say the parts haven’t come in to fix his car. Essentially he is trapped in the town.

He becomes friendly with the people in the town and if I remember right he was an architect and they gave him some related jobs to do.

Throughout the movie the man sees in various moments a black SUV is following him. He goes to the mechanics and it’s on the corner. He goes to the diner and it’s parked in front- but it never has a driver- it appears that the SUV moves by itself.

Any time the man tries to get close to the SUV it starts to move and try to run him over.

Towards the end of the movie he’s finally able to get close to the car and open the door. The car starts talking through the radio and tells him that the car chose him to stay in the town and has been controlling all the things happening to him since he arrived to the town. That the SUV was the voice that the man had heard on the payphone when he first got there.

The SUV wanted the town to become important and because of that gave the man jobs to build important buildings in the town.

Finally, the man gives up and accepts that he will never be able to leave the town.

One day another man arrives to the town – the same as the first man- his car broke down and when he asks for help in the same cafe the first man happens to be there. The first man passes him a paper with information to find the hotel but the paper actually says “don’t answer the phone and run”

Finally this second man doesn’t take his advice and at the very end of the movie when the telephone rings he answers it.

 

Recent drug induced cannibal movie

I saw this movie a few years back and I think it came out after 2005. It’s about a couple guys going cross country to work on a film project and they stop at a friend of one of the guys. The third guy basically invites himself along on their trip. They stop at a dinner where the third guy offers a hitchhiker a ride. They camp out in the desert and fall asleep. When they wake the hitchhiker is gone and it is suggested he drugged their drinks. One of the guy goes crazy as in the night eats the friend he shared the tent with and then goes after the third guy. Then basically the third guy is just running for his life in the desert as the guy chases him wanting to eat him.

Been trying for months to remember the name of this movie. Please help!

Children Fantasy Movie/TV Show With Woman’s Hair Made of Gold

I’ve been looking for this forever! I watched it on American TV when I was little kid I was born in 1984. I was very young and it was a long time ago so the description may not be completely accurate and I can only remember one scene. There is a man and women in the woods hiding. They may have been hiding by a stone bridge or rocks talking to a boy or children. There is a scene with two men in a small black helicopter searching for something. The man hiding with the women tells the boy or children that the two men in the helicopter are searching for gold with their helicopter and they are hiding because the woman’s hair is made of gold and that is what they are picking up with their radar and have been chasing them.

This is the very last movie/TV show from my childhood that I cannot identify. These are some of the other obscure movies that I have been able to identify.

Invitation to Hell (1984)
The Quest (1986) AKA Frog Dreaming
Troll (1986)
Mac and Me (1988)
Nothing But Trouble (1991)

Pls help!!!

I watched it when i was young so probably like 1990s definitely in english and i’m not sure but i believe its a movie? It was in colour  and all i can remember is one scene where the main characters who i think are either children or teens, they teleport to a different dimension and all i remember is the stone slab floor that is like old and broken and crumbling that they wake up on and also i feel like they might have been next to a jungle? For the longest time i thought that it was an old jumanji sequel but then recently i realised that jumanji didnt have a sequel at that time so i hope someone can help!

Can’t remember

i remember watching this one movie when I was younger and I only remember this one scene. It was near the end of the movie and this girl had been kidnapped (I think) and her and the kidnaper were in this diner. Well she tried to escape out the bathroom and she turned the water on somehow in the sink causing it to flood. The kidnapper end up going in and I don’t remember what he was trying to do but he ends up electrocuting himself because of cords in the water. I don’t know, I might have imagined this but if anyone knows of this movie that’d be great.!

I cannot for the long fe of me remember the name of this movie.

I have a vague memory of this movie I watched that I really enjoyed but it’s been so long I can’t remember the name or most of the plot. I think it was about this man that was trying to break into this home and kill this women. There was a trap set for him near the end where he fell through the floor and was impaled? But saws or something. Then it had something to do with this old women with dementia that was maybe telling a story but she apparently knew what was happening and she smiled at the end of the movie.

Please help me its driving me absolutely crazy for over a year

I’m pretty sure it was a romantic comedy, made within the last decade

So I watched this movie the other day (let’s say around April 19th-20th, 2017) it wouldn’t have been on any premium movie channels or anything, just regular television channels. And I know I’ve seen it before, I just cannot think of it.

all I can think of is a scene it cuts to a girl sitting in her room, I believe looking in the mirror, and there is this upbeat indie rock song playing (just the instrumental) for just a few seconds, then it stops when one of her parents comes in and the camera pans over to them, going over the room kinda sitcom style. I don’t know why but that’s all I have right now
