Do You Need Help With The Title of a Horror Movie, Book or TV Series? Bring it here!
 
...and don't clutter the Modern Horror section with too many short threads.

Saw a movie long ago whose title you don't remember now?

Had a peek of it and want the name of the flick?

Ask your queries here henceforth, alongwith your descriptions, and you shall be answered.

Thaaaank you! haha 'bout time.

This will never work unless you make it a sticky, V.

urgeok2 09-25-2008 07:11 AM

More than once. If it gets stickied it might work, though. Not that anyone bothers to read them:D

_____V_____ 09-25-2008 09:22 AM

It might. Let's give it a try.

Okay, Austin or Z, please make this a Sticky. And broom in all the "Need Title of Movie" threads of the past 7-odd days into this one, for starters.

Thank you. :)

People usually tend to check the top threads in a section first. Hence the Stickies get more Views.

Maybe the other ones werent made Stickies...let's give this one a shot. If it wont work, we can always un-Sticky it.

Angra 09-25-2008 09:32 AM

I think the thread very fast will become a huge mess of pages and pages of questions, suggestions and answers.

Don't forget all the joke answers!

Right. ;)

_____V_____ 09-25-2008 09:39 AM

A bit of maintenance touch will help immensely too. Like merging any newer threads asking for a movie into this one.

I don't think anyone comes in here and straightaway hits upon the New Thread button, before checking this Section for a similar thread first.

Anyway, thanks Z. Here goes nothing...

newb 09-25-2008 09:46 AM

I don't think it a bad idea.


what can it hurt.

can someone set up a program to automatically reject posts with "the Gate" in them ?


Yentle is ok though.

roshiq 09-25-2008 02:09 PM

I have been waiting for this thread for a while:D Thanks to V.

Anyway, there was a horror film that I saw a very long time ago on television but I'm not sure whether it was made for TV movie or not. As far I remember it was about a family attacked by some killer plants (more like a giant flower type plant having snake like filament!) on their garden.

Can anyone tell me the title of the movie?:o

urgeok2 09-25-2008 02:10 PM

old movie ? sounds like Day of the Triffids

roshiq 09-25-2008 02:14 PM

I have no idea...I need to check that out.

I don't think so, probably it's from late 70's or 80's and surely not a black n white movie.

The_Raven 09-29-2008 06:29 AM

Let's give this a try.

I am thinking late 70s to mid 80s film - I am pretty sure it was with George C. Scott (although I could be mistaken), who is a crook and under disguise with a fake eye-patch over one eye. He takes up a job as caretaker in a family, which has a kid whom he is trying to kidnap, or kill.

Not so much horror, as suspense/drama. Can anyone take a stab at this one?

urgeok2 09-29-2008 06:31 AM

hah - thats Firestarter

The_Raven 09-29-2008 06:33 AM

I haven't given that one a watch yet. Caught bits and pieces of it on late night TV once. Any good?

urgeok2 09-29-2008 06:55 AM

i like it - i like the entire cast and love the Tangerine Dream score ..

considering the source (i dont like Stephen King) it's a fun little movie.

(bad effects though)

There was a BBC mini Series of Day of the Triifids made in 1981...

mandilly 09-29-2008 04:58 PM

Anyone know the title of this movie?
 
I saw this movie when I was a child, and I cannot recall the name of the movie, nor too much about it. All I can recall are a few scenes, that I may be embellishing slightly since I saw this movie when I was about 6 years old? Maybe?

Does any of this sound like a movie you know?:

I remember that a son lived with his mother, who appeared to be quite older, perhaps in her late 60s or even older (though, this old age may be attributed to the fact that I was young when I saw this movie). His mother goes on a date with this unknown gentlemen, when the son witnesses his mother and this man eating someone in a back alley. The man, and now his mother, had red eyes and pointed teeth. I also remember that the son would chop up the bodies that his mother ate (she was infect with this 'disease' by the gentlemen) and put them in black garbage bags to dispose of. I remember the ending involved a fire in the house, and the mother was on the floor with her back against the wall, telling her son to leave the house and let her burn because she was a monster.

Does this description ring any bells? I've been trying to discover the name of this movie for quite a few years now, and I'm getting quite desperate as of late to figure it out. Any thoughts are appreciated.

bloody_ribcut 09-29-2008 05:47 PM

i cant wait to find out , that sounded crazy.

haha, yeah. my thoughts exactly.
i hope urge or newb or _v_ or zwoti come to the rescue on this one.
i'd certainly like to find out.

urgeok2 09-30-2008 02:53 AM

not me - doesnt sound familiar at all

newb 10-01-2008 11:42 AM

I got nothing.

It would help if peeps could kinda give a rough idea of what year [ saying I was 6 years old doesn't help....we do not know how old you are ] and what country the movie is from.

What was the name of the movie about the guy getting pulled apart by two trucks? I think I've seen it...

Sounds like the new "The hitcher" remake.

yes....in the original it was the girl who "split"

Nella 10-03-2008 11:12 AM

Yes, I have seen that one. It was actually not that long ago. :o I have a problem with CRS. Thanks for the answer.

I'm assuming CRS is Can't Remember Shit?

Yes! How funny...It's not really age-related (I don't think?). I'm taking a medication that is known for causing "amnesia-like" symptoms? Not sure how to put it, but you get the gist, I'm sure. I have virtually no short-term memory. It's disturbing sometimes and I'm trying to get off of the pills...

What does TCM or TMC stand for? I think someone was referring to a book or movie.

Nella 10-03-2008 04:15 PM

Oh, and I was reading the archives in the Books section. Someone mentioned THE CHILDREN'S HOUR. Is this a play from the '30's? The person said it was the scariest "shit" I've ever read!, or something to that effect.
