Three more movies I’d like to remember

I’m back with three more movies from my memory banks.

First Movie:

My sister and I saw part of this movie in 2004 while on a family vacation. It was late, we were in bed and we put the tv on while my mom was in the shower (dad was already asleep). We were flipping through channels and we stopped at this movie. Two men came home to a cabin (maybe back from hunting?) and there was a trail of blood leading from the front door, to one of the bedrooms. They followed the trail into the room and found more blood on the bed. Then, there was an attached bathroom and more blood leading into there. I think they argued over who was going to go into the bathroom. They both decided to go in together, and when they opened the door there was blood everywhere, and a man was sitting on the toilet, dead.

Then, my mom came out of the shower, saw what we were watching, and made us turn it off. So we never got to see the rest or find out what happened, and we never knew the name of the movie.


Second movie:

I never saw this movie, but I remember really wanting to. I know there was more than one…three, I believe. It was in the late 90’s/early 2000’s. Literally all I know is that they were about a serial killer who takes his victims to a lake to kill them.  I remember there was a marathon on TV one day. My best friend lived next door, and I went over to see what she was doing. She said she was going to watch all three movies and I asked my mom if I could watch them with her and she said no. I was really disappointed about that. We moved a few years later, and I lost touch with that friend, or I’d ask her if she remembered the movies. [Solved: Cabin by the Lake]


Third movie:

This one is really vague, so I apologize. I watched it on Netflix a few years ago. I think it was basically about how kids in the 70’s were kind of neglected? Or maybe that’s what the narrating character suggested? It was set in the 70’s, and I remember there was the family of the kid that narrated it (I’m pretty sure he/she narrated it) and I think he/she was the second oldest and the two older kids got stuck watching the younger two all the time.

At some point, the parents have a key party, and all the kids are banished to the upstairs. I’m pretty sure some of the other people that came to the party also brought their kids, and they had a sleepover. Something happens to one of the kids while the party is going on…I wanna say someone broke their arm from falling off the roof or something. I’m sorry it’s so vague, it’s really bothering me though because I remember watching it, but I don’t remember much about it.

  1. Second movie(s) could maybe be Cabin by the lake (2000) and Return to Cabin by the Lake (2001). They were made for TV.

    There are only two as far as I know though.

  2. The third one sounds a little bit like Ice Storm (1997) but there are some details that definitely don’t happen in Ice Storm. I guess it’s mainly the 70’s and the key party that make me think of Ice Storm.

  3. I’ll try to find Dreamcatcher. I just googled it, and I’m not sure that’s it. I have to find the scene.

    Cabin by the Lake sounds correct though. I did some googling and that sounds about right. I watched a few trailers/videos and it looks absolutely terrible lol. I won’t be reliving my childhood need to watch that one. lol We’ll call that solved though.

    The third one definitely isn’t Ice Storm though. I’ve seen that a few times. I think this one was made in the past 10 years.

  4. RobinSparkles: I found Dreamcatcher, and that is indeed the scene I saw all those years ago. It’s definitely not how I saw it going. So funny how different something can seem when you’re not getting the whole story. Thanks for your help once again. I think you’ve solved three of my mystery films so far.

    Sw: That’s it! I’m impressed. My description was pretty jumbled. That’s your second solve for me.

    You guys rock! Thanks again.
