Indie Horror Anthology, Early/Mid 80’s

I saw this on the old Prism cable network in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area in the early to mid 1980’s. It was a low budget affair, possibly independent, possibly a student production. It was in color and in English.

It seemed to have been filmed in a couple of abandoned locations, including some creepy ruins of a building overgrown with vegetation. I have the impression they may have written around the areas they had available. There were, I believe, three stories, framed by a group of young people (probably college students) telling them. The image that sticks in my head all these years is of a guy hovering and dazed under a single bare, blue light bulb in a very small, grey, dingy room. The point to that story, if I recall, was how someone had previously been found like this and a guy decides to investigate and winds up sharing the same fate.

I don’t remember anything else, really, but my impression is that it was a competent amateur production. It certainly creeped out my 12 or 13 year old self! Prism used to show some interesting stuff (I first saw Werner Herzog’s remake of Nosferatu there when I was maybe 11 and I became a lifelong fan of Herzog from the experience.) Early cable was without a net!

Any help would be appreciated, but I have a feeling the film I’m looking for was way under the radar… Here’s hoping! Thanks!

Monster/Alien in Rain forest NOT PREDATOR

I don’t remember much but there was your stereotypical hero male and love interest woman. Set in some kind of lavish forest so I think it was a rain forest. I don’t remember seeing the monster/alien but I know the couple ended up looking after a little boy for a while but the monster killed him anyway. Kind of like a Predator meets Aliens I guess because if I remember correctly the little boy had knowledge of the monster and I think he may have been of Native American appearance? I saw this movie around 20 years ago but I don’t know if it was new. My dad was watching it on TV and I was in the room gaming but half watching.  And for some reason I remember diagonal stripes… I really have no idea why! As if they were claw marks maybe. Definitely in colour and English.

so i love movies and have found some through memories this one is a very vague one lol so a blond woman is in a hotel room with a guy i believe she is an alien and the guy is trying to get laid and she isnt interested and he takes her necklace and slides it down his pants trying to be all into it so she crawls across the bed unzips and the guy is all like yeah and she takes it in her mouth starts sliding the necklace out and bites it off then leaves lol i believe its an 90’s movie but i cant remember the characters or anything else its been so long since i have seen it hopefully someone has an idea what movie this scene is from!

comedy about two adventures and a villain

 

 

It was a light comedy from the 80s or 90s. I just remember the start of the movie. It was a scene with two adventures in a scene like indiana jones, trapped, captured by enemy forces. The main villain was approaching them and one commented to the other: “And now he comes and says something very cliche like ‘gentlemen, we meet again’, wanna see?”  So the villain really says that, and they find it funny.

A blonde bimbo and a crazy old doctor comedy

This movie may by from the 80s  or the early 90s.

It was a totally crazy, surreal comedy, in which all characters behaved in insane manners.

In one of the scenes, a blonde caucasian bimbo at a hospital makes a shocking discovery that the 2 asian parents who raised her were not in fact her biological parents, but had adopted her. She then sets out to discover her real family. She is assisted by an old doctor, who is crazier than her.

comedy western movie

A comedy western, featuring a bunch of kids trying to frustrate a robbery. One of them had urinary incontinence and  at the end they used horse crap against the criminals. Its a very old movie, black and white. probably from the 50s or 60s.

traveler marks mailbox with thief symbol

I saw this scene within the past 3-5 years, in color, in English, and I think it was from a movie but can’t remember anything else about the plot.

The scene is a flashback about the main character as a young boy.  He and his parents lived on a farm and were very poor/generally lived during a hard time in history.  A traveler/hobo comes and asks if he may work for the father that day in return for shelter and food overnight.  The father reluctantly agrees.  That night, the hobo stays in the barn and the young boy goes out to talk with him.  The hobo tell the boy about a system that travelers like him use to let each other know if a family/man is kind to them, and shows him the different symbols.

The next day, the boy’s father throws the hobo out without paying him what they agreed.  The boy later runs out to their mailbox to see what symbol was left, and is disappointed to see the symbol meaning thief.

This is a “character development” scene, and for the life of me I can’t remember what the rest of the movie/show is about.  Many thanks for any suggestions!

Weird Fat Guy Octopus Thingy..?

This is going to be one of the most vague descriptions ever. However, no matter how hard I try, I can only remember this particular scene: a extremely large man, bigger than a sofa.. he is somehow just eating away at his life, he starts to grow tentacles, and that’s all I ever can remember.

 

I don’t mean to trouble anyone.. but I also have really bad nightmares/night terrors (please no one lecture me on how horror movies do not help nightmares – i would rather not deal with that).. I want to know if I saw this as a movie, or if I just dreamt of it.

Movies help

So there was this movie that I remember watching when I was like 7 or 8 and all I can remember that there was this male person of color and he was in a relationship but he made like some type of friend that is white and his mom and towards the end they had like this type of swimming competition at school and the little kid hits his head dies because of it and at the end the male’s gf leaves him and it ends. The movie was like around 2000’s

Monster flick?

So I caught glimpses of this one movie late night in the late 90s.  I was only a kid so my recollection is pretty fuzzy, but I think I remember a few scenes. Some military types are walking down some rickety stairs when they collapse and one of the dudes falls through (there might have been water at the bottom). He is then promptly eaten by something.  Later another soldier (black maybe?) sticks his arm into a hole in the wall for some stupid reason.  Chomp chomp monster clamps down on him (I think it had tusks at this point) and the rest of the guys just leave him there to be eaten like assholes.  Final scene I remember is a guy and a girl in a dark room up to at least their waists in water. I’m assuming they’re the lead actors since they weren’t immediately eaten by something for the moment I saw them.

 

Can anyone help me figure this one out?  If I had to guess the channel it was on I’d say TNT.

The only movie that ever scared me

I saw a movie in the summer of 93. I am almost positive I’ve identified Clint Howard as a serial rapistd/killer but it is not listed in his tomography at all.

There was a scene where he is working for a moving company along with a man he calls Moon. They move a blonde woman into her new home. She is wearing tiny white shorts with a red stripe on them. He must over her on these shorts. They come back later that night tie her up and rape her. He slits her throat. He recounts the details to detectives and tell them Moon always Sh** on the floor when they would rape and kill. When he raped  woman in this film the screen would cut to a image of him wearing a demonic mask in dark room appearing to be surrounded by shadows of people reaching for him and encouraging him on. Please help me. This is the scariest movie I’ve ever seen and I know it is real.

Two strangers hunted by two young boys in an abandoned village for no good reason

Hello! I watched this film on the British channel Film4 late at night 5-10 years ago (so 2007-2012) and have been intermittently searching for the name ever since. Unfortunately I can’t remember if it was English language, but I remember it as being European rather than American for some reason – so the audio was probably not English.

It’s an atmospheric thriller, in which two strangers (1M, 1W) meet on a road, possibly due to their cars colliding. The bulk of the movie is made up of them being hunted through a forest by two young boys. I think it is revealed at some point that the boys have score cards.

At some stage, the man leaves the woman behind in a ditch/ravine after she’s been injured; it’s left for us to assume that she is picked up and killed. Towards the end of the movie the man drowns one of the boys in a well in the middle of an abandoned village.

I’m 80% sure the boys had a dog, if that helps.

Searching for this movie online doesn’t get me anywhere – other than to this site! So I’d be very grateful for any pointers, and apologies for any mistakes / glaring omissions.

Dead child possesses people who caused his death?

This description was given to me by a friend. She was hoping I could help her figure it out, but I’m not having any luck.

  • She said it was a B quality, and only memorable because it was so strange.
  • She saw it a few years ago, but she can’t remember if she rented it, saw it on Netflix, or TV ect.
  • Most likely made within the past 10-15 years
  • Color/English

What she remembers is that a young child dies in the beginning, and she thinks it was a gun related accident. She remembers the parents, or the mother at least, being negligent.

The kid comes back as some sort of entity, and possess the people who played a part (unknowingly?) in his death. She said he either forces them to kill themselves, or causes them all to die in some way.

At the end, he possesses his mothers boyfriend to kill his mother, and apparently the mother gets the idea that if she has sex with the boyfriend, she will get pregnant with the child again, causing his spirit to leave the boyfriend’s body and be born again.

She said she could be getting some details confused, but the basic idea is there. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Home invasion movie

I’ve been trying to think for the longest a movie where it was about a African-American couple who are taken hostage in their home and held captive. I remember a few scenes where the captor had relations with the woman in a hot tub and in the kitchen. I watched it on Netflix a few years back but can’t remember. Thanks

Comedy Con Artist/Criminal Movie (or TV show) scene

I’m picturing a scene and it’s driving me insane that I can’t figure out where I saw it. I thought it was from one of the Ocean Trilogy movies, but I just fast forwarded through all 3 of them and didn’t see it. There’s a tiny chance I missed it but it’s more likely I have the wrong movie. The movie (or possibly TV show episode) is definitely in English and in color and came out between 1995 and 2015 (more likely before 2010).

The scene I see has 2 con artists /criminals working together (I think there is actually a large group but this scene focuses on 2). They are in 2 separate lines at airport security. They both have fake passports/identities and they are dressed in character. There characters are very different – while perhaps incorrect, I am picturing Bernie Mac in traditional South African attire and Eddie Jemison as a Rabbi or something. They both get to the front of their security lines and realise they have switched passports so Bernie Mac has to pretend to be a rabbi in his South African attire and Eddie Jemison takes off his yamaka and pretends to be South African. The security agent with Eddie happens to speak the South African language and the crew of con artists get really nervous as they watch Eddie wondering how he’s going to convince the security agent. After a pause, Eddie responds perfectly in the South African language and suprises everyone. They both make it through the security line safely.

 

Again, I may have the actors and fake identities wrong, but the the concept is definitely correct, and hopefully some of my memory is correct and will spark something in one of your minds! I’ve spent HOURS today searching for this so I will be REALLY thankful to anyone who can help!

80’s Movie/Show with Mean Girls

I watched this when I was under 10 yrs old and it was in the 80’s and in English.

All I can remember is one scene. This group of 5 or 6 girls (high school or college age) convince this overweight girl to change into a bikini or skimpy outfit. They tell her to wait in a room. Next thing that happens is a guy that I think the girl likes, walks into the room and she’s mortified and he’s mad and feels bad for her. All the girls start laughing and the girl runs out of the room. Also, this scene was in the daytime. I remember it being very bright in the room from sunlight.

I know it’s not much to go on, but I hope someone knows what this is from. It’s been driving me crazy trying to figure it out. Thanks

Affair, murder,

I’m looking for the title of a movie that I jut can’t remember. Murder, affair, mistaken identity, plastic surgery, events that don’t add up.

Some Time in the 199os, 1992-1994 Saw on laser disk. LOL

English Language 99% sure it was an American movie.

Laser Disk/VHS

Color

Twist Ending. This movie opens with an iconic car crash off a coastal cliff. A man wakes up having had lots of reconstructive surgery and having memory loss. Turns out he is very rich, and his wife takes him home.

Nothing adds up, the memories don’t jive. He starts looking for answers.  One of the family a woman indicates he was her lover also and he is not who he thinks he is.

Eventually, he discovers he has asthma and he also finds a body in a ship, that looks like his own body. The ship contained chemicals that preserved the body rather than dissolved it.

The twist was the man was the lover, and the wife had her husband killed and arranged for her lover to take his place.

UK Film With Woman Director – Heavily Features Train Tracks

A film heavily using train tracks as a setting piece and taking place somewhere in the UK. It follows a father introducing his young daughter to his other small child- a result of an affair (though I think this was more heavily hinted towards the end). The two girls are rather disagreeable through most of the film. It may possibly be a short film rather than a feature length piece. I think the film may have possibly used a holiday as a backdrop, either Christmas or Easter. I know for certain that the director was a woman.

Alien plant

This was a definite made-for-tv, low-budget movie I saw on the Sci-Fi Channel a few years ago.

 

A demolition crew is in the process of tearing up an old military base when they come across a hidden room. In the middle of the room there is a tomb-like vault. When they remove the top of the vault they find it full of water and a drowned test monkey (or maybe a person) with a strange plant growth coming out of it’s chest. They take photos and the light from the camera flash starts the plant growing at a fast pace, killing everyone it touches. The survivors reason that if the plant is growing this fast at night, then it will be unstoppable once the sun rises. One person realizes that the plant is actively avoiding him and it turns out that this guy’s blood acts like Roundup to the plant so he has to find his way back to the vault and kill it at the source.

HELP I can only remember a scene from this

All I can remember is

I think there were two boys, who had or took a car to a party, like a beach party camping type of party. But the car had no engine they had either rolled it there or something to impress people. I think maybe people got in and wanted them to drive but can’t go anywhere

It’s an older type of film where two teens either rolled or somehow gotten the car to a beach camp type of party where there were other cars but there’s didn’t have an engine they took it to make it look like they had a car. People got interested and wanted them to drive but obviously they couldn’t go anywhere

This is all I can explain please help!
