Sci fi villain

There’s a scene in the movie Snowpiercer that reminds me visually of a scene in another movie and I can’t remember what it is. This is the picture:


There’s another character, I’m pretty sure a villain, in an older sci fi movie who has a similar scene, except it’s a male character. He holds up little glasses or binoculars (or something similar) and is looking towards the camera. I think he may have red hair but I’m not certain. When Snowpiercer first came out in 2014 I remember other people making this comparison too, so it’s definitely older than that and I also remember that it’s in color. I’m not sure about language. I think it’s a well known movie, I just can’t place this scene.

Shift in reality

I think this is really a long shot because I have hardly any information, but maybe it’s familiar to someone?

It was in color, I’m pretty certain it was a movie but there’s a chance it could have been tv. I saw it a few years ago, and I don’t think it was very old at the time, but I might be wrong.

It was about a man and a woman who were a couple, and they experienced some kind of shift in reality, but I don’t remember what it was. I remember a scene of one or both of them in bed, either going to sleep or waking up, and something was different, or maybe they were anticipating it being different? It might have been that one of them disappeared from existence, or had never lived there, or something similar.

I think it may have taken place in a loft apartment.

While searching I’ve found some movies like this involving children disappearing, but I’m pretty certain something happened to half of the couple and not a child.

I know that’s not very much, sorry!

Girl with red juice

I’ve been searching for some weird thing that traumatized me as a child for years now. I initially thought it might have been something short that aired in between something else, like a PSA? That might be completely wrong, I was very young when I saw this. It could have been a scene from a tv show or movie.

There is a little girl (I think she’s blonde) walking through a house with white walls and white carpet, carrying a glass of red juice. She suddenly encounters someone who should not be there in the house, but I don’t think the viewer sees that person. It’s implied that something violent happens, which we also don’t see, we are just shown the glass falling to the floor and red juice spilling on the carpet.

This would have been on an American tv station in the late 80s or early 90s.

I’ve looked for this for so long that I’ve run out of ideas for searching, any help would be so appreciated! Thank you!

Help identifying actress?

Something different: I know what this actress is from, but she’s uncredited and I’m trying to identify her from some photos. I’ve searched everywhere for credits that include her with no luck.

She’s in Criminal Minds episode “No Way Out” (2007), playing the younger version of a character called Jane in a flashback. Unfortunately, because of the way the scene is filmed, the closeups of her face are kind of blurred, but these are the clearest ones I have:

I realize it’s a long shot, but everyone here has seen a lot of films, so I wondered if someone might have seen her in something else and recognize her? I’m face blind and can’t recognize anyone to save my life, which is why this search is driving me nuts. :-p

Performer leaving

I’ve been having trouble finding this film because I only saw the opening scene, so I don’t have much to go on. I saw it in the early 2000s, though it looked like it was probably much older than that. It’s in color, but I don’t remember what language.

It opens with a woman who is some kind of performer, sitting in her trailer. She’s made the decision to leave wherever it is she performs. I keep thinking it was a circus, but I might be mixing this up with some other film. She could also have been a dancer? A man comes in who does not want her to leave. They might have an argument. There is a part that is filmed looking through the window of the trailer, but I don’t know if a character is looking in or if it’s just the camera.

Sorry I don’t have more details! I saw it on a dvd owned by my friend, who now does not remember it existing at all, so I’m starting to think I might be going crazy. :-p

Probably 80s Horror: Ritual & Woods

I’ve been looking for these two things for awhile and I’m not having any luck. I’m not sure if it’s two films that I saw in a row, or two parts of the same film. Both are in color and in English. I saw them on television in the mid 2000s, but I think they are from the 80s (I might be a bit off, though).

1) There is a ritual taking place at night that involves some kind of figure/idol/statue (like a clay idol?). I think there is a tribe of people doing this. There’s a woman with dark hair involved, though I don’t think she wants to be. The idol goes inside of a wooden box and floats down a river, and the camera follows it. I remember it as having some kind of magic involved and something being sealed inside the figure. I keep thinking that this was backstory and took place earlier than the rest of the film, and the figure had something to do with bad things happening in the present.

2) This one has been super hard to look for, because it’s so common: a story about young people (campers? staying in a cabin?) being chased/hunted in the woods.

Details I remember:

– All of the scenes with people being hunted take place in daylight.

– One of the main characters is a girl with blonde or light brown hair in a pink shirt.

– There is a scene involving a hollow log. I’m not sure if someone hides in it, or finds something in it, or is just looking through it. Near or during this scene, a male character is killed. I think he is found by the blonde girl.

– It seemed like there were a lot of scenes of the people (who were separated from each other) hiding from whatever was after them.

– There is a scene that shows clothes hanging on a line in the woods.

– It does not involve zombies or cannibals (these keep coming up when I search).

– Although I’m not completely certain, I strongly feel that it was a supernatural thing after the people, not a human.

When I first started looking for these, I was very certain they were the same film, and the figure had something to do with whatever was hunting the campers, but I can’t find anything like that and now I’m not so sure. Any suggestions for either of these things would be appreciated, even if the details are off, because I might have mixed things up. Thank you!!

Horror movie / a lady’s hair moves?

So, I caught part of a horror movie on television years ago and have been trying to find out what it was ever since, but unfortunately I don’t have much to go on. The only scene I remember is of a woman with dark hair sitting in front of a mirror, and she saw her hair move by itself in a really noticeable way–I think there was a ghost? I’m also pretty certain (but not 100%) the room she was in was rather red, I’m not sure if it was the lighting or the actual room. I don’t know when the movie was made but I saw it more than 5 years ago. Is this scene familiar to anyone?

By the water; wooden box?

I saw this movie sometime around 2004 (approximately) and have been trying to figure out what it is for years. I’m fuzzy on details, but this is what I remember: There was a murder or murder accusation, and the story was mainly about a husband and wife. It took place in a house near a dock. There is some kind of mystery and there is a scene involving a wooden box that was important–I think either a character found a key that unlocked a wooden box, or found a wooden box with a key inside? I believe I saw it on television. It was in English, in color. I’m not sure when it was made, but it was definitely not that old when I saw it. Does anyone know what this might be?
