Q: Does anyone remember a movie that was based around halloween, and there were 3 statues. A tall skinny red one, a mid size blue one, and a short chubby green one. And a kid somehow got the blue one to come to life. and it ran real fast and helped him out. I think the kid was high school aged... Also i remember the monster mash song being involved... am i crazy or anyone else remember something somewhat like this?... might have had something to do with a full moon... maybe kid turned into the monster???

Q: I'm trying to find the name of a movie (or made for TV movie) from the 80s, but I don't remember that much about it...

There is a boy that can heal animals with his hands.
He heals a blind turtle.
Someone brings him a dead animal and he can't do anything for it.

There is one scene where he and his buddy are playing in a river and some bullies kick them out...then the boy shocks them with his hands through the water...

I think the boy has flash-backs of his mom dying by getting hit by a bus when he was younger...

Any information would be great...I've been looking for this movie for a while.

Thanks.

Logan5 thanks for the suggestion, but Powder isn't the movie I'm thinking of. I wish I could remember more about it.

I think at the end of the movie the boy finds out that his mom is still alive, but I'm not sure.

Thanks again guys for any thoughts you have. [Smile]

Hello, I'm looking for a movie title. It was so long ago, I only remember one scene. A woman was kidnapped and held in a room possibly for ransom. While she was being held there, a couple of thugs came in and was trying to assault her. In the meanwhile a male who was in the area came and rescued her before they could assault her (i think). It seemed like it was set in hong kong or a gang related district. That's all I can remember. Can anyone help? Thanks

Great site. First post. Reviewed the thread and apologies if I missed the answer.

I am looking for the name of a film, made in Canada, 80s, something like War Games, but low budget and no graphics. (But IMHO with a better premise).

A student develops an algorithm which he releases into the school computer and changes his marks. The algorithm escapes into the 'net causing havoc in other systems. I am stopping here so as not to be a spoiler.

Thanks in advance. JV

Q: OK I Need Help With This Movie I Think It Was An 80's Movie There Was A Young Boy Who Was Like Lost In A Mountainy Forest And He Had to Survive There Was People Chasing Him I Remember A Scene Where There Was Men On Dirtbikes Chasing Him He Tricked One Of Them And The Man Went Off The Cliff I Think And throughout the movie the boy setup traps and stuff i think There Is Another Scene Where He Has To Use A Zipline But Is Afraid At First But Then He Works Up The Courage The Boy Was Dressed In Like Animal Fur And I Think Had A Wolf Head For A Hat And He Wore A Necklace I Think That Had some kind of medallion on it like a talon or something i dont remember i think he ran across some people or someone At a cool looking fort like place i think the person or people tried to trick him into staying with them but he said he had to keep moving i think i remember like his father or maybe the man that raised him was a husky guy with a big beard white beard i believe but he dies or is killed somehow near the beginning and then the boy is on his own from then to survive i can't remember who or what is chasing him though i'm not sure if his father or whoever the man was sent him on a quest or he just had to survive till the end. it's based in a foggy mountaln forest i do know that i think it ends with the boy on a cliff top and a helicopter hovering over him Not Directly over him like just off the cliff in front of him and the boy is crouched down like he's tired and hurt ending camera angle is from helicopter to boy on cliff. i strongly believe that's how the movie ends. any help with this is highly appreciated for years i have been trying to find this movie please help A 1000 thank you's. god bless.

It sounds like Hide and Seek (1984).

Secret: Thanks. Hide and Seek it is. The film was based on the the Sci-Fi novel The Adolescence of P-1 , (1977) by Thomas J. Ryan. (Ref. Wikipedia). I am pleasantly surprised to find that the novel is set in the town where I live. Per Wikipedia: The low budget film was one of the first to describe a computer virus and artificial intelligence (AI). IMO War Games was just a gamer and a hacker with no I, Artifical or otherwise.

I actually need the name of a movie, and I just became a member of this message board to figure it out..maybe you guys can help?

The movie is about a 'hate-filled' teen girl, she's a bit angry and tough, she has piercings, dyed oddly colored hair, etc,.I know she is mad at her mom/parents etc, and she goes to a carnival of some sort. I remember her being really hot and climbing something like a water tower. I think it was a slightly action filled type movie, but not 'scary'. I believe she had long hair and she 'shaved' or cut the majority of it off, angry with mom, went to carnival. (wow..this is pretty broad, don't know what else happeend though). I'd like to see the movie again. anyone help?

Hi Dr. Flavor..

This movie doesn't describe it exactly, but how about:

Breaking All The Rules Rewind Thread

Breaking All The Rules Rewind Movie Page

If this by chance not the movie.. how about a longshot:

"The Legend of Billie Jean"

Neither fit your description totally, but that is all I can come up with at the moment..

Any more details that you can remember? I don't recall Penny Marshall being in very many movies in the 80's.. how about Cindy Williams in "UFOria"?

Spaceballs?

Space Camp?
