Old movie where i only remember a part

All – have been struggling with this for awhile.  I’m 35 and when I was a kid, I remember watching a portion of a movie (before my mom kicked me out) that I’ve tried to recall since then.  I’m guessing it dates back to the early/mid 80s.  The only part I remember is that a guy with a family goes downstairs in the middle of the night because he heard a sound and found some bad dude hanging out (I believe sitting in an easy chair).  I don’t recall what the bad dude was after, or what he did after the guy went downstairs and found him, but I remember he had the guy in a very bad position.  The bad dude may have also had a co-hort that had broken into the house as well.  I don’t think it was a horror movie, but it could have been.

I know this is very little to go from but any thoughts?  I’ve struggled so long b/c I don’t remember much but for some strange reason, it’s one thing I frequently recall from my childhood.

    1. I don’t remember that being a part of the movie. It could be, but perhaps I didn’t watch long enough to know.

      I’ll check this out.

Got something to say?
