strange movie

Hello friends, I have returned after a long time. Sadly my two prior movie memories still has no takers. Lets move on the third one.

This one I have the least memory of but can testify its being late 80s/ early 90s; lots of flashy red and bluish-indigos through a foggy lens. It seems like a horror-thriller and involves two hitmen like characters, one of whom has a very scary face. But they are not the main characters nor villains.

There is one scene, when these two walk into a house wielding automatic rifles or SMGs where lots of people have gathered, and naturally cause panic. One lady screams on seeing the scary face causing him to fire warning shots.

Another scene, the climax or penultimate. A smaller house where a lot of scared people have blockaded themselves in from zombies or cannibalistic aliens and there is a pretty little boy (this one might be the lead cast) who seems the least scared. Them this hitman duo turn up in their bikes, shoot the place and the zombies/aliens down and rescue the rabbits, sorry people. The little boy very bravely runs after them and mumbles his gratitude. The non-scary one then acknowledges his thanks and hands over something liked a medallion or similar talisman and tells him to take care. Then they drive on again for the next shootout zone maybe. THE END.

And there my memory ends too.

African safari movie

well friends, it was slightly tragic that my flying horse movie had no takers. I have no choice but to move onto another movie memory.

A B/W movie with a family (handsome father, pretty mother, 2 cute kids) coming to Africa where the man is newly posted as (a ranger, maybe) and is welcomed by his loud, short buddy-colleague who is very excited on this arrival. Sadly the latter was squashed by a rogue elephant, and the movie actually showed his squashed body, how gallant film-making!

In the climax the family’s home was invaded by wild cats and the lives of the young ones were threatened, but the parents manage to shoot their invaders in time. The mother had always wanted to leave Africa, but in the end, yields to the plea of the children and her husband to remain in Jungle Horror land.

flying horse movie

well friends I am back with another movie memory.

Here’s this movie about a non-animation movie about a flying horse, where I remember a short scene, and a production still.

A group of soldiers (infantrymen) are looking at a hill/mountain and suddenly one holding a bino shouts “There it comes(or something similar)”; then I see something white charging down the hill/mountain. The camera zooms and it is a horse with wings and appears in extreme fury. What happens later that the horse reaches ground level and then goes in flight mode, but the cadets attempt it to lasso it down, perhaps only planning a capture not slaughter.

Now this maybe a dubbed Asian movie as the picture quality was dull reddish, and I could not see the faces of the cadets, but they were not whites. I have tried to look for non-anime movies based on flying horses and receiving data only on racehorses or war planes. Kindly help.

a wildlife adventure movie based either in Africa or a desert island

I had already written this once, but do not understand how everything was simply wiped away from your memory.

Anyways a bunch of tourists, mainly Americans including a boy of 10-11 years of African origin and a European priest are abandoned by plane on a desert island or anywhere deep inside Africa by vicious head-hunters or smugglers. The boy in search of a safehouse, enters a deserted mansion but finds it filled with lion prides, elephants and other wildlife; but when they all enter it later, they find it empty.

A gruff (American) truck driver, called (something like) Butch becomes their only hope of rescue along with a jungle lass in scanty garb who cannot speak human and rides elephants. In the end, the animals return and help the brave tourists to fight off the smugglers/head-hunters who for some reason have returned to loot/slaughter the former. Butch and small boy opt to remain on the island with jungle lass even after getting a free air ticket.

Finally I saw this movie in the 90s and the movie had an 80s quality picture and shooting technique.

Now kindly save my post and help me find the movie name!
